learning something new.

I've been experimenting with time lapse photography over the course of the past week and my trip to Arkansas provided me with the perfect opportunity to try it out. The skies yesterday were just incredible with the clouds moving more quickly than usual due to a storm passing nearby.

I returned only a few weeks ago from what's seemingly becoming an annual visit, but was sad to realize I'd skipped the field-trip to see the Zebra-donk this time around. Luckily, I went last year with my nephew, sister and camera in tow. I figure, he's enough of an oddity to warrant his own photo blog entry, so in an attempt to kickstart me back into posting on this blog, here you go:
