The ISO is too damn high! So this morning I went to Oklahoma City because I volunteered to help at the Redman Triathalon (which the name is a whole other can of worms that I won't address here).
So I didn't plan on doing a lot of shooting today so I just grabbed the T3i and put the convenient little 18-135 lens on and threw it in my car this morning. I stopped to take some cool foggy pics of the sun just outside of Lindsay, and I ended up with super grainy shots. So, my friends when embarking to take that perfect shot make sure you CHECK YOUR SETTINGS. YES. Check your ISO. Since apparently it was on the highest ISO setting there is on this camera. My potentially beautiful sun in the fog pic, is as grainy as a cell phone photo. MEH.
EYES on the ROAD ladies (this guy was the first cyclist through on the route) .... actually I didn't have time to gawk at the hot bods riding through. I was standing outside of a bank entrance watching people too impatient in their own lives to realize there were all of these cyclists who have invested a lot of time to train and compete in this triathalon. I guess after running in numerous events it felt good to volunteer to help one out. Now, I really, really, really don't like directing any sort of traffic especially near a busy Oklahoma City Intersection. I have a whole new respect for cops who have to direct traffic at busy intersections.
Respect for the deceased will even stop the triathalon riders. A funeral procession took precedence over the sporting event. Can you see how busy the traffic was, crazy! It was all for a good cause, this event helps Easter Seals in Oklahoma.
After my shift ended, I hurried home. My Sisters and I spent the evening at Winstar Casino and went to see Tears For Fears who put on an awesome show! I was impressed. Sowing The Seeds of Love is by far my favorite Tears for Fears song.
