I have yet to procure a new camera for myself. I'm not even sure what kind of camera I want. Should I try to get back into photography and splurge on a DSLR? Wouldn't that make my blog that much more appealing if I made the effort to take good photos? OTOH, big cameras are kind of burdensome size-wise and that can make them awkward when traveling. On Utah/Arizona trip, Kevin had to go minimalist with his supplies and I had to carry anything he couldn't do without in my backpack because he had to carry his massive camera, tripod, and lenses in a backpack. I suppose the ultimate deal would be to do what he does and carry a P&S when I don't want a camera to slow me down and get a DSLR for when I want to be more creative.
*Gets out rocking chair* Back in the days of film, I had a Pentax SLR (Still have it sitting in the closet). I definitely was more attentive to how I took photos (I had to be because it was totally manual), but probably didn't get out of it as much as I should because I only had one lens. Still, I took classes, learned how to manipulate depth of field, and was pretty good in the darkroom with the B&W stuff.
I guess I really need to learn more Photoshop stuff too. I have no excuse not to take good photos when so many of my blogger friends post photography advice in their blogs.
Anyway, my latest recipe is simple and also would be really hard to make look good in photos.
We all know how I am always trying to dull turkey burgers more interesting. I came up with this method this week after adapting a taco recipe I saw in a magazine.
1 finely diced mango
1 finely diced onion, 1 finely diced jalpeno, 2 cloves minced garlic all sauteed together
1 tsp ground ginger and 1/2 tsp ground allspice
Approximately 2 pounds ground turkey
Form into patties and cook. Definitely one of my better turkey burgers.
