Last week my friend Bailee asked me to take some pictures of her and her husband just for fun. I was happy to oblige. I had a DSLR camera reserved through work, but due to a last minute mix up - the camera was checked out to someone else! I was really bummed until my supervisor offered to let me borrow his reaalllly fancy camera with an awesome lens. Then I was stoked! THAT THING WAS A BEAST. 
Aren't they adorable? It's pretty easy to take decent pictures when you have a fancy camera and good-lookin' subjects. Bailee has seriously saved me this past year and a half. We had all but one class together during winter semester and it was the best thing ever. She is always willing to listen to my rants about silly assignments or the fact that our classes are tooooo early in the morning, and she has me laughing and in a much better mood by the end. Also, she's one of the coolest people I know - she is an amazing dancer (she used to be a cougarette!) AND she ran a marathon a few weeks ago. I'm so glad she's still willing to be my friend even though I'm an awful dancer and terrible at running! haha
This morning at work I had an argument semi-intense discussion about photography. My supervisor is of the opinion that in 20 years from now, professional photographers will be a thing of the past "much like typists and telephone operators." I disagreed. Although photography probably isn't a very lucrative field to go into, I think that people will still want professional quality photos in 20 years. But I guess only time will tell! 

I am by no means a professional photographer, but I have really enjoyed learning about photography the last few years and it is something that I want to continue learning about. And who knows - if professional photographers are still around in 20 years...I wouldn't mind being one of them :)
