I wish I was outside today. I wish the weather was not this cold. I wish I know how to get to US for a biology internship without requiring all the diplomatic mess (i.e. is it possible to go to US without Form DS-2019?). [If anyone has experience or knowledge about this, please let me know. I'd greatly appreciate it.]
Yes, today was quite cold. Snowflakes were falling from the sky here and there. Since I don't want risk damaging my camera in this unpredictable weather I decided to stay home. I practiced with my new camera by taking pictures of crows and gulls from inside (with the porch window opened...brr) and learning how to use modes like A (Aperture-priority AE), S (Shutter-priority AE), and M (Manual exposure). I tried taking pictures of crows and gulls flying in the air but fast shutter speed in this low-light condition gave me almost completely dark pictures - still a long learning curve to go, I guess.
