Having gotten the camera at the start of the week, I was impatient to go out and actually start shooting pictures. Alas, the camera didn't come with a memory card! Once that arrived, I was simply waiting for good weather conditions. Then I realized it's Wisconsin in winter - it's not getting any better for at least two more months. So I just went.
Important lesson learnt: Don't point cameras at people's doors. They come out and ask questions :)
