I thought I'd try to take a picture of my lenses for this week's Assignment52 - Photography Gear. I tried a bunch of different setups and nothing was working. So, I just lined them up and took this picture.

I used the 18-55mm kit lens that came with the D40.

We found out today that my wife's Grandma passed away last night. Despite suffering from Alzheimer's, she lived a long, healthy life and just recently turned 94. We'll be heading down to Novato this Thursday for a family get-together and to pay our last respects.

I took this shot at Lowe's; it's rain that accumulated on the outside bar-b-que's. I needed to pick up a tool to take apart Shannon's car because the passenger-side seatbelt is jammed. Luckily I was able to fix the problem and avoid paying $500 for the dealer to take it apart and fix.

I went to lunch with Adam to Sensei Sushi in Rancho Cordova. This was the bowl the miso soup came in. What is it about that stuff that is so good?

I haven't been able to post a photo everyday or visit people's photostreams. I'm trying to remember all of the reasons I started this 365 because there are so many things that are falling behind because of it.

I think I'm going to continue to take a photo each day...I just don't know how often I'll be able to post.

Today was a busy day. We did a lot of work to prepare for the baby, hard to believe he/she is going to be here in a few weeks. We're still trying to pick names...we've narrowed it down to around 3 for each gender.

The boys helped me make a birthday cake for Shannon. Yellow cake with chocolate frosting; it sure was good.

Another night where I waited until the last minute to take a picture. After trying for a half hour taking pictures inside, I finally took these guys out, laid down on the cold, wet, concrete and snapped a few shots.

For Day 2 of Shannon's Birthday weekend, we took the boys for lunch to Leatherby's and then to Funderland Park in Sacramento. It was the first time that we've been there as a family and the boys had a blast. They went on all of the rides together and it was the first time that Shannon and I were able to just sit back and enjoy watching them have fun.

There are a bunch of rides at Funderland, but this roller coaster was by far the highlight of the day. It was surprisingly fast and we loved hearing the boys screams of joy while they were on it.

On a technical note, I had a tough time focusing accurately with them on the rides. I don't know if it was the lens or settings or me, but sadly, a lot of the pictures are slightly out of focus, including this one. I guess I need to practice more ;)

Wow, 50 days down, only 315 to go ;)

Day 50 happened to land on my wife's 33rd birthday...Happy Birthday Shannon!

Happy Birthday to you too Max!

This is her opening earrings from Caden. It's really sweet because the boys are getting old enough where they have ideas of what to give her and they are things that she would really want. They used to just suggest things like Transformers or Playmobil's.

Cooper's gave her a watch, the baby gave her some books, and I gave her a print of Lynn's wonderful Blue Spruce photo.

For dessert we had cupcakes from Icing on the Cupcake, then after the boys went to bed we had P.F. Chang's for dinner.

I'm so tired that I fell asleep on the couch tonight around 7:30pm. When I woke up, I still had to think of a picture to take. I really didn't want to, but I am determined to complete this 365!

I'm off to bed now...goodnight.

On the way home from work today, I stopped by Shady Oaks Park to take some pictures. It was my first time there, so I wasn't sure what to expect. The disc golf course at the park is very popular and there were a lot of people there. It was fun to walk around and check out the course, it would be fun to play there some day.

Today, during my lunch break, I drove over to the Nimbus Fish Hatchery in Folsom, CA. I had fun hiking around and taking all kinds of different pictures. The salmon run is finished, but I got to see some steelhead making their way up the ladder.

Usually on a work day, I only have a few photos to choose from. I had a lot more from my outing and eventually narrowed it down to 5-10 completely different types of shots. I had a hard time deciding which one to post but I guess it's a good problem to have...better than the nights when it's 10pm and I still haven't taken a picture ;)

So, this is this the flower in my 365...with water drops and all. After a couple of days getting reacquainted with my 50mm, I put the macro back on to try and be like Lynn ;)

Focusing with a macro lens can be tricky. I had tried using auto-focus with and without a tripod, but decided to use manual focus without a tripod. I think it is a bit easier to control that way.

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend and had a nice Valentine's Day.
