Welcome to Tokyo Disney Sea!  
Oh Japan. I miss you, and I don't.

That's for another post, though! This is all about Tokyo Disney Sea and my journey there this time. I've been there a handful of times, and written about it before, too! I was just getting the hang of my new camera (I still thought that the touchscreen was the best way to take photos, but I was SO wrong, and of taking photos in RAW. If you've known me for a long time, you might remember when I started to post photos of my walks in Arizona and my first arrivals in Japan in my old livejournal. Most of those photos are not online anymore because the server that I used isn't around, but maybe I'll dig some up for posterity later.

Anyways, I've never taken photography super-seriously (it's a hobby for me and a way to share my life), but some of you know that a few months ago, I took a side job at a resort in Hawaii doing portrait photography. I mostly do editing and printing, but I take photos sometimes as well, and I decided that I really want to up my game. So I picked up a Nikon D5500 with the kit lens. I liked the red body and touchcreen, and it was decently priced, so even though the kit lens is nothing special, I am saving up for a better one and learning how to use Lightroom to get the effects that I want. I used to own a Pentax, but in an incident with Tofu (my youngest kitty), it met the floor HARD and shattered part of the body and my only good lens.  So, it was time for a new baby, and while I was interested in Pentax as well, this red one won my heart with its good looks. <3 I really have zero brand loyalty. Good cameras, come my way, whatever brand you are!

ANYWAYS, enough about that! Let's enjoy a trip to Tokyo Disney Sea, the revised and expanded Winter 2017 edition! Read more on my new blog!
