For the first time in quite a while, we made the journey up to IN for Thanksgiving. Was quite a good trip - great to see a lot of relatives I don't catch up with often.
I wonder how many more Cache/Catch puns I can come up with? Anyway, inamongst the more typical festivities, I managed to do a little geocaching - mostly to place a travel bug I'd picked up here in TN. I think I might have mentioned it before. I even got my dad & my brother to come along with me, and the three of us had quite a good (if cold) time. I'm up to 12 finds, total. It's been quite fun.
Also, spent quite a bit of time talking to my brother about camera gear and photography in general - something I always enjoy. Joe is learning to handcraft jewelry, and wanted a camera setup to take photos of his work. He recently bought a Nikon d3100 and 40mm f/2.8 lens that has some decent macro capability. I, personally, would have steered him toward Canon, but that's mostly because that's what I have and I might be able to help a little more with that. Plus we could share toys. But he found a deal on this one, so that's what he got.
It seems to be a decent camera We had some fun playing with it, seeing what it was capable of. It does have higher iso performance than my camera, though I haven't tested how well it performs at 3200+. The close-focus/macro of the lens seems to work pretty well also. I'll be interested to see what he does with it.
