Who's reading "Fifty Shades of Grey?"

I didn't even realize this book existed until two weeks ago.  I woke up one early morning and CNN was abuzz about the so called "Mommy Porn."  At first I scoffed at the fact that was news.  But like events happen, I couldn't stop hearing about it.  All of a sudden, people around me were talking about a book, none other than one of the Fifty Shades trilogy.  What's interesting is how fast everyone seemed to be going through one entire book.  When a good friend of mine who lives in Nigeria, asked "Have you read...?" and I said "Fifty shades of Grey?"  I knew I had to get the darn book.  Just like others she went through the book pretty fast, looking forward to the rest of the series.

This is why I love my iPad.  With the push of a button, I had all three books downloaded (currently reading.)  At first with all the stereotyped hype, I thought the book was strictly for married women; long-term marriage, trying to get their grove back, rekindle relationships with their husbands.  Simply put this book would resonate with any adult interested in reading it (although written from a female perspective.)

"When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms."

You know it's Spring when you see Cherry blossoms

With my gadgets in tow, I decided to go to the Tidal Basin.  The weather have been exceptionally warm lately, feels like Summer time.  I'd simply take advantage of the warmth.

Lots of people were out here on a mid-Friday afternoon. Taking the leisurely stroll and taking lots of pictures. I personally decided to be a photographer. So, I had my iPad, iPhone, and my Boyfriend's Canon 50D.  Mid-stroll I decided to sit at the Floral Library, the floral installations were gorgeous! If you live in the Washington DC area or have the opportunity to visit, try to make it out here this Spring. Oh, let me not forget the Cherry blossoms; they were everywhere. Eventually, I had to continue my day trip.  I made my way around the basin passing different monuments.
As a photographer, I couldn't help but shoot; there were so much beauty around.  I used the opportunity to test all the cameras in my possession: an 8 mpx. my phone, a 5 mpx. on my tablet, then a 50-110 mm lens mounted on my Canon.  I didn't expect less from the DSLR, however, I was impressed with the capabilities of the point-and-shoot from my Apple gadgets.

The stills produced by the little gadgets weren't bad.  Works best in the day; not very good in low light situations .  I've tried shooting with my iPhone in a night club with it's built-in flash, picture quality left less to be desired.
Live beautifully my friends and enjoy my gorgeous pictures!
Collage of pictures from my test shoot.  Which camera produced which picture?
Thanks for reading.
I appreciate you.
