Save the Dolphins!

My wonderful, wonderful husband bought me a new full frame camera!  The Nikon D600!  I haven’t had any official photo sessions with it yet, but the day after I got it, I heard at the last minute that there was a protest outside of the Japanese Embassy concerning the annual dolphin hunt in Taiji.  I am vegan and a bit of an arm chair animal activist, but I always say I’d like to get more involved.  So, I asked my daughter if she wanted to make a quick sign, and we headed downtown!  She is not vegan, (my husband is not even vegetarian, so she is raised with a combination of our lifestyles).  However, she is obsessed with ocean life, since she thinks she is a mermaid, so I knew she’d be concerned if I told her about the annual dolphin hunting.  (I didn’t get graphic, of course!)

It was a nice day, wonderful for me meeting so many like-minded people that are so passionate about a cause I care about, and I think, good for Violet.  And of course, the camera was fun to use, too!  Although I still need to spend more time getting familiar with it.
