Tonight was a tough game, the Cannons were blanked by the Indians 20 - 0. Josh only batted one time with a strikeout. He did have some great defensive plays at shortstop, tho. The team is now 2 - 4.

Today was the 1st annual New Hope "Run for Hope", featuring a 1k and 5k run from the church and through the surrounding area. It was well attended, I would estimate at least 40 - 50 in attendance. All proceeds went to New Beginnings International Training Centers in Jamaica.

While in NY last week, we spent part of the day at the Rosamond Gifford zoo in Syracuse. It was a cool but nice day, and we just about had the park to ourselves.
This duck was splashing the flamingos until the flamingo on the end shoved him off...
This tiger came up really close to the barrier to briefly rest.
The penguins gave us a show by tracking the boys hand movements.

It's big and heavy - the body is just over 2 pounds with the battery - and it's also a complex camera that offers 12.3-megapixel imaging and crosses the line between professional and consumer DSLR.
One of the first features to catch my eye was the 3-inch color LCD, with a Live View mode to help with macro photography. Many of the buttons are programmable, and the ability to tweak the camera became essential when I started learning the menu system.
The images this camera produced surprised me, especially the lack of graininess at high ISOs. The D300 is fast: It can capture an impressive 6 frames per second in burst mode, and 8 fps with the addition of an external battery pack that I will purchase in a couple months.
All in all, I look forward to years of fun shooting with this new model.

Last fall, I took photos of the Cuyahoga Valley Towpath for the Ohio Canal Corridor. One of my photos is being used in an advertisement as a backdrop. My Sister in Law, Kathy Stella Cole is one of the coordinators for the events advertised and she asked me to pass along that the website to register for the races will not be up until Feb 5th, if you are interested in attending the events.
