Updated Moon!! And other stories!

Hey everybody! Guess what, I just found out that I can get the full moon above the park right beside our house! That means I have more time to play with settings to get an even better one than last time. Here is the updated! Compare both, and you'll see what I mean.

Cool eh? Way better than the last one. (not as bright) 
Anyway,  I want to talk about the coolest thing I've ever joined on the internet! It's called OYAN. (One Year Adventure Novel/Forum!) Maybe I should explain before I get in to much detail. First of all, my sister joined and loved it so much. It's a high school novel writing curriculum which teaches soooooo well! When joined, you get to join the forum where you can talk with other OYANers, as we call each other. You can also make topics on pretty much anything. Whether it is random, or about writing. If you need help with character development, or ANYTHING!! There is also chat, where you can talk to people. One of the great parts about it is that almost all of them are CHRISTIANS, including me of course. There is also an every year workshop is Kansas which I want to go to so bad next year!!!!!! 

Anyway, that's enough about OYAN for now...well...I'm tired and need to sleep, so I'll post later. 

Enjoy followers!

New LENS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You know what, I think I'll post whenever I want...I just can't keep up! >.< Anyway, I finally got my new lens!!!!! You know, the 70-300mm! I've done lots of new awesome pictures with it, especially a full moon picture I've wanted for a long time!

Cool eh! I couldn't get in this close, that's why I cropped it a bit.

Xciting Weekends!

Hi everyone!

Did you do anything exciting last weekend? I certainly did! The church that I go to had a youth camp or retreat, whatever you want to call it. It lasted about two days at a cabin at Roche Lake. I think Roche Lake is in Merit, BC. We did lots of fun things there, like boxing, wrestling, pen knife fights, capture the flag, etc. If you're wondering what pen knife fights are, its a game where you get a marker or pen and try to "cut" the other person. We also, near the end of the day, went to a lake to swim in. Brrrrrr, it was cold. Another thing about the lake was the mud at the bottom of the lake. When you walked in it, you could sink until it rose to your knees.

I also had another exciting weekend! We went to this rodeo called the Cloverdale Rodeo in Cloverdale obviously. It lasted three days, but I only went on the first day. They had all sorts of rides and events, like a Skateboard Competition! All sorts of pros came and showed some of their fancy tricks on flat ground. It was  pretty cool. I also went on a ride with my sister. I don't know what it was called, but it was like a giant slingshot shooting strait up. You would sit and buckle up in this ball and shoot up like 200ft up, super fast on these cables! It was one of the best rides I've ever been on! There was also chariot races, but I didn't see them. Well that's all I have to say about the rodeo, but just to let you know, I'll put some recordings of the skateboarding on my Youtube account and on here some time when I've got it finished.

Anyway, God bless you all. See yah!

April 30th

          Hey everybody, I've decided to post every Friday. Sorry about the no spaces in between anything on my last post. I tried to edit it but it still doesn't want to change. Whatever, at least you can still read it. Anyway, did I tell you that I'm saving up for a telephoto lens for my camera? Probably not. Well here's the picture of the IS 70-300mm USM lens.(Ultrasonic Motor, Image Stabilization.)
It's pretty expensive, but I'll earn the money when I work with my dad this summer. He's a painter just to let you know. He works in a company called Remdal Painting and Restoration. Right now I do have two lenses. One is the IS 18-55mm lens which came with my camera, and the second is the 50mm lens.
           Last post I said I'm taking free photography classes from my Uncle. Because of this, I larned more of the advanced settings on my camera which helps me to take waaaaaaaay better pictures.
            Here are some of the awesome flower pictures I took at a park called Hawthorne Park I recently went to.                                                                              
Love them! They are like my best flower pics ever!
What surprised  me was that when I used my flash, it lit up the rose's edges, and added the awesome effects.

             I told you I would post on Friday, but today's Monday. That doesn't matter though, because I just really wanted write it all out before I forgot what I wanted to say. I guess that happens when you love to write. :) Anyway, I don't have much more to say, so have a good week, and God bless.

I'm Back Everyone!

Hey everybody! Wow, its been forever since I last posted. I just totally got uninterested in blogging, but now I'm back. As I can see, I've got new followers since I've been on last! Yaaaaaaaaaaay! Thanks for the support. One of the reason I stopped was because I thought no one really liked it all that much. Well, let's get back to the present now, not worrying about the past. Last post I said I would put pics on from my survival weekend, but I guess I didn't really take much at the time. But I can still tell yall bout it. Let me see...Oh yes. We found this old road, only a 4-wheeler could get up. At the top there was a turn in where a perfect little place to camp lay, just waiting for a "mountaineer" to come along and use it to his advantage. I guess we were the "mountaineers." We parked and pulled out the saws to cut down some small trees to build a shelter. As the day grew to a close, we finished off the shelter with a sheet of plastic we brought along, and placed on top, just in case it rained. Finally we finished, then we built a fire, just with a flint and some petroleum jelly to get it started. It was nice out that night. Just sitting by the fire, hearing the wood crackle as we talked about certain things. At last we finally got tired and went under the shelter, snuggling up in our sleeping bags. We lay down on some more plastic because of the wet soil underneath. Slide...We found ourselves on a slight hill, slipping down the slippery plastic. Boy that was sure annoying. When combined with the cold weather, and a slippery underneath, you get real uncomfortable. After a few hours of sleeping, we decided to go to the truck, because it was sooooo cold. By the morning, we were all rested and ready for the day ahead of us. Well, that is pretty much it for the survival weekend. Now onto other subjects. By the way, I'm 14 now! Almost 2 months ago now. Getting older also means new exciting things, like photography classes! That's right. My uncle, a professional photographer is giving me free private lessons! I'm also part of this photography club taught by another professional, except she's a lady. I've learned so much, but there's still alot more to learn. Anyway, it's getting pretty late now, so I should probably go. Oh, one more thing. I've got a Youtube acount now. It's called "SaltyDogStudio." Look it up! Later everyone.

Survival of the Fittest

Hey everybody, hows it goin! Guess What,if you've read one of my most recent posts, it says I was to go on a survival weekend. Well I've just found out that I am going! If you're thinkin that its kinda cold, then I know. Frrrrrrrrrrrrreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzinnngggggggg!! That's why I just got some extra heavy snow clothing. When I put it on, it's like I'm in a slow cooker. In the house that is. It'll keep me ssooo warm. I even got a bow and some arrows to see if I can catch a rabbit or something. Here is a picture of it.

I guess that wasn't too close up, but that's pretty much the looks of it. If you can't see close up enough, the design is camouflage.

I'm also looking forward to the weekend because a friend of my dad has a hunting license. So he's going to bring his gun! I'm not sure what type it is, but I'm guessing it's a shotgun.

Today is a Tuesday, and around lunch break, my mom was chatting with a friend. Her friend put out a link, and the video was hilarious! Because it was so funny, I decided to put it on this blog!! Here's the link.

If you watched it, tell me what you think of it by leaving a comment.

So, I'll put out another post when I get back from the survival weekend. I'll add some pics and such!! Well, that's pretty much all I have to say for today, so see yah!!
(p.s. can you believe they are playing Christmas music already in stores!)

November the 18th

Oh my gosh, I can't believe I haven't posted for FOURTEEN DAYS!!!!!!!!!! I really got off track this time. Well, my last post stated that I was going to Portland, Oregon, and guess what I did go! :) It was awesome seing all the people that my sisters have been talking about ever since their trip to Poland. I loved to see the Photographers especially! They really inspired me to learn more and take more pictures.

I stayed in a Hotel while I was there, and there was a pool there! I love swimming. It's probably one of my all time favourite things to do.

Guess what, yesterday was our first snow fall this year! It started around the evening some time. My little sister and brother went outside to play in the awesome snow. The snow was so nice and sticky that you could make a snowman in like 5 minutes. Me and my brother made five snowmen in a row, and played target practice. It was awesome! One of the snowmen kept getting hit, but it wouldn't fall over. >.< It got so skinny, but then my brother made a lucky shot and it calapsed. Well, I just found out that I've got a new FOLLOWER!! Thanks Daniel!! Your awesome! I've seen your blog, and its pretty cool. My sister Julia really likes your blog. Here's a picture of our snow fall yesterday evening.

Well, there yah have it. Have fun reading my blog.
