School's out for the summa.

I met with my photography class for the last time last night. Technically, there's one more class, but it's just a photoshop tutorial, and seeing as how I took this class to break away from photoshop, I opted out. The last class also falls on Jon's 30th birthday, so I told the instructor I wouldn't be there. For class #5, we met outside the classroom at the Keeper of the Plains, a landmark in downtown Wichita. I was hoping for a gorgeous sunset backdrop, but the sky was clear blue. Here are some photos I took of the location:


This one would have been much better if you could read the text, but I thought it was neat to catch the reflection of the suspension bridge behind it.






I definitely learned quite a bit, but the class left me desiring so much more. I've already done a quick search for more classes but didn't find any. I may check again when programs update for fall and winter classes.
In other news, I ordered a new lens! Woohoo! I wish I would have ordered it before class was over, but I'm really excited and it should be here in just a few days. If anyone is looking for a new camera (SLR or P+S), computer, or camcorders, bugdig.com is an excellent place to get them. I ordered my camera and 2 lenses there for MUCH cheaper than big box stores. Their standard shipping is free, there's no tax, and their customer service is wonderful!
