The first and best cat that i have ever had..words cant describe how broken hearted i am to not have you here next to me like you have been for these past two years of my life. You made me so happy and i will miss you so much. i hope that i made it the best 2 years of your life. i fell in love with you immediately that morning i saw you sitting there on the couch while you just starred up at me with your percious tiny blue eyes, which instantly melted a my heart. i remember the first time i picked you up, you fit perfectly in the palm of my hand and you just sat there calmly and never tried to run away. You were so tiny and brave and determined to hop on the couch to sit next to me as a kitten. even though it was too high of a jump for you as a baby you didnt stop trying till you made it on the couch. it was one of the cutest things ever. Thank you for all the cute moments i will remember forever. i love you..

NY has blazing heat!!




this is the manhattan bridge on the brooklyn side which i found to be noncrowded compared to the NY side which was overly croweded as usual! my trip to NY was awesome! i got to see a lot of things and i didnt get to see a lot of things i wanted to. this city is far too MASSIVE to even try and explore for a couple of days. i drank many gallons of water to keep myself hydrated during the horrid heat of which im not used to anymore. im so spoiled with this amazing beach weather.

Along the coast




my adventure up the coast was so much fun!

i finally fixed my saturation problems with my pictures i just have to change to color profiles or whatever that junk is called i hate all this technical crap that comes with this..

anyway this is the waterfall that i have been wanting to go to for over a year now. the first time i saw a picture of it on someone elses flickr account i just had to find out where it was and luckly i found it. not too far of a hike at actually.. i just wanted to jump in the water the whole trip with the scenery i just really dont have the words to discribe it really but i'll let me pictures do all the talking.. its illegal to hike down to the beach cause its so dangerous, but its not illegal to be on the beach...

Tales of the sea


i
i was lucky enough to get this shot since the aquarium was sooooooooooooooooooo unbelievably crowded last week! anyway i post more picture of my adventure up the coast later....

anyway a month ago or so  i was looking to purchase a fast lens. i first was deciding between the canon 28-200 2.8, Tamron 28-200 2.8 wide angle or the sigma 24-200 2.8 wide angle... of course i did my research and according to price and all canon was deffinately out of the picture, the lens would have cost me a whopping $600 or more and even though most of the photographers did indeed recommend that canon lens because it produces such sharp and crisp images and i dont doubt it but im on a budget

so then after that it was between tamron and sigma... sigma doesnt have a good repuation for being a good lens at all and its fairly cheap but for the same price as the tamron and tamron has a way better repuation then sigma. i compared peoples photographs online and found that sigma is just a soft lens... i dont like soft lenses i like strong sharp images for the most part...

so obviously i went with the *drum roll please* TAMRON 2.8 and as you can see from this image it produces shots just as good as the canon not totally identical but almost and im so happy with it!!! 

after reading all the reviews a lot of photographers were saying why not just go with something just as good as the canon lens.... you always have to read reviews and compare pictures taken with lenses they can be kind of tricky to pick out cause theres so much to take into consideration.......
