365: 40 Glass Through “Glass”

   Back again for I think the 13th day in a row!  A few times the posts haven't been posted on the right day but they were started on the right day so it’s all good.  I ended up finishing The Digital Photography Book today.  I’ve only read a few pages of Vol. 2 at this point but it seems like there is going to be a big emphasis on off camera flash which I don’t have yet, and if I want one its going to cost me a few hundred bucks.  Photography is an expensive “hobby”, I already spent a crazy amount on what I have currently, and already I could spend probably at least another grand on more stuff I want.  A wider lens than 50mm ( x1.6 on my body) is a bit hard to fit in some stuff sometimes but its nothing that I can’t get over.  My next lens purchase, at this point anyways, would probably be the Canon EF-S 10-22mm.  Add a tripod and/or monopod, a bag, a filter or two, and I’m sure that would still leaving me wanting something new in a little while, haha. 
   At school this morning we had the high school awards ceremony.  I “helped” organize the grade 9’s from last year/grade 10’s this year.  I quoted helped because I guess I wasn’t doing the job right but I was pretty much demoted to ushering people into their rows.  The ceremony was pretty boring, with everyone in grades 10-12 who earned honour roll the previous year getting called up, as well as another probably 50 awards to be handed out for various accomplishments.  Maybe it was just the fact that I only got honour roll that made it seem so long for me.
  Today’s photo: Explanation on the title, glass through “glass”, the first glass is referring to the glass of the National Gallery of Canada.  The second glass, the one in quotes, is a slang photography term for a lens.  Makes sense seeing as all a lens is is a series of glass lenses (confused yet).  So its a picture of the National Gallery taken from Majors Hill park a few weeks ago.  Not much else to say really other than enjoy :).

   Finally, before I wrap this up I want to share another video that I find quite humorous every time I watch it (which is about 10 times now).  Funniest parts of the video in my opinion involve the police, lol.

   Well I am going to wrap this one up here and I am going to try to get to bed earlier than usual tonight.  I need my beauty sleep you know :P

  1. Smart title! I definitely know what you mean about it being an expensive hobby, but I think it's all worth it in the end if it's what makes you happy, don't you think?...And don't say that you only got honour roll. You GOT HONOUR ROLL! They don't just throw the word honour around willy nilly, you should be honoured that your hard work is being recognized, or maybe just thankful that you're naturally gifted, and for that you get to miss out on class. ;)...Hilarious video, by the way!
