Lost Island Water Park: Waterloo, Iowa
Corey and I bought a new camera. It’s fancy. Not for the reasons you’d think a photographer would consider “fancy,” but because it’s WATERPROOF. Admittedly, I did only a little bit of research (shh, don’t tell him!), but found some really good reviews about the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS3. I’ll do a thorough review later, once we’ve had other chances to use it, but I think it’s going to be a great little camera.
On Saturday, John Deere hosted a family outing event to the Lost Island Water Park in Waterloo, Iowa. When Corey told me about it, I could help but squeal. I’ve wanted to go to this water park since last summer when he was just interning in Waterloo. So needless to say, it was a YES from the get-go. And a perfect opportunity to test out our camera.
Lazy river? Don’t mind if I do…
In just a few months, I’m going to be taking photos of REAL palm trees. Yes, please.
There’s not a lot of opportunities to take “underwater” shots at a water park. I considered making a video going down a one of the awesome slides, but was more worried about holding on to the tube. So we played around in the wave pool a bit. (From Corey to Aquafina: “Those of Aquafina, contact me for rights to this photograph if you wish to purchase it for advertising purposes.” Haha)
A perfect day.
I’m looking forward to testing the camera out and writing a full review, but for now, I’ll just say that I’m extremely happy with it. Happy Tuesday!
