I finally got a decent shot of our cardinals that frequent our bird-feeder. Couple that with my amazing mother-in-law taking the two kids that weren’t napping for a couple hours and I got to play around with my camera and do some post-processing. I must say, though, I am a fan of straight out of camera photos. Don’t get me wrong, photography is an evolving art, especially with all the post-processing options out there. Me, I prefer to capture the memory. That is why I take photos. The cardinals this year have looked so beautiful and promising against all the snow we have. Not to mention they sing such a pretty song for us each and every day. That is why I wanted a photo, to capture that memory and to be able to share a piece of it later down the road.
