A couple of weekends ago we went to a hockey game. It was “Pink in the Rink” night, hence the pink ice. The proceeds for the game go to a breast cancer foundation. Anyway, this was the first time I have taken any action shots not on “auto”. The whole night I was torn between getting a good action shot for sure in auto mode, or using shutter priority mode and learning more about my camera. Here are some of my pictures in shutter priority mode.
Cool story about this little boy :). A husband(who is the military) and his wife have season tickets next to us, so we get to see this cute little boy every game we go to. Last season they didn’t have this cute little boy, but my mom was confused because the wife was not pregnant during last season either. Through conversation at the game, she told us a really neat story. Her and her husband tried to have kids and couldn’t. So, they signed up to adopt. They tried for 7 years to adopt with no luck. They then went to an open adoption agency and waited two more years. The husband left for his deployment to Afghanistan when the wife got a phone call from an adoption agency. She had 13 hours to get to the hospital to pick up their new baby boy. She ran to Wal-Mart and got all the baby stuff she could and went and picked him up from the hospital. Her husband found out through email that they were the proud parents of this new baby boy. For six more months the wife took care of the baby, the husband only got to see him on Skype. He was 6 months and 9 days old before the Dad got to meet him. The boy is 10 months now, and in 2 more months the adoption will be final. Isn’t this a cool story? I love it when good people get to adopt kids!
