We spent some time at our local Aquarium
OdySea Aquarium in Scottsdale, AZ - The Southwest's Largest Aquarium
I had in tow the A6400 and 50mm 1.8. Aquarium shooting can be a real challenge. Dim lighting, fast-moving creatures, weird reflections and no flash allowed makes it tough.
We spent some time at our local park with a cousin and her mom.
The stuffed dog was not supposed to be part of the shoot but the little one would not let it go so we went with it.
I am not a Pro Portrait shooter so be gentle.
Our town had a fun balloon glow event. Even though it got pretty chilly for us, it was fun hanging out, watching the balloons and chatting with neighbors

What a crazy night. We went to a Haunted house that our niece was a participant in. He puts on quite a show. It is kind of a weird holiday that I'm not crazy about it but my wife loves it.
Went last night to a night show of various interpretive dance performances.

A6000 and 50mm SEL did me well.

Last weekend I got the chance to get back in the saddle with some friends. Some old hands like myself, (I used to work the summers in High School on a Ranch), and some newbies.

We spent another fine New Years Eve on the Ice with our Foster Girls, lots of fun had by all.
A6000 and 50mm SEL. The lights were constantly changing, from a bright white to a dark blue. That and the other skaters getting in the way, made for some tricky shots. I kept in it "P" mode...
Out for the night to our town's local Halloween Event. The main drag gets decked out and a traveling fair comes in.
