I decided to invest in the Pro version of Flickr, since 500px is a bit out of my price range and I’m rather fond of Flickr. I ran out of space on my account, so because I bought Pro for a year (next year I’ll worry about renewing it…), I put the new space I received to good use. Last year I went to the 11th Annual Butterfly Festival in Plano, and this year I went again, to the 12th. Bri ended up meeting us there after her appointment, since Grandmama, Papa and I all went after mine (allergy shot). This post is rather picture heavy, just a warning.
I probably shouldn’t have upgraded to Pro, but I need a place to showcase my photography, and there’s only so much one can do with free versions of photo sharing mess. In other words, I didn’t really have another option, and I’d rather not rely on Facebook, who supposedly owns photos after they are uploaded.
Afterward, we went to Chik-fil-A, where I bought us lunch, and then Bri bought our movies. We watched Olympus Has Fallen. It’s an action movie. White House Down was featured in a preview, and it stars Channing Tatum. We think it’s the comedy version of Olympus Has Fallen. I REALLY can’t wait for Fast & Furious 6, because I love Vin Diesel, a few of the other actors (like Paul Walker), and movies about fast cars. 😀
We even got to release some butterflies! They had two per envelope! They just kept handing us some. It was awesome. Last time, we missed doing this because we went in later.
I was using the camera my dad got Grandmama for either Christmas or her birthday. It was 16.1 megapixels, but it definitely did not work like my camera. It was like a DSLR and a digital camera had a baby, and this was the result. I suppose the best thing about it is that it takes larger and more crisp pictures? It just doesn’t capture motion very well like my 8.1 megapixel baby does.
