My new toy

In keeping with the idea of appreciating all the little things, living in the moment and other mushiness in general, I found I lacked a very useful tool. After all, I want to start this whole blogging thing off right.

After much searching around and internet education I bought......... a camera!
I've been wanting one for so long.

It came in the mail and I opened it like a kid on Christmas morning. It is so beautiful! My new toy is so nice that it takes clear pictures even though I don't know what I'm doing.

So here are 2 of my fantastic photos from that first day.
Photographers, please shield your eyes.
Yes, I realize I have the flash on. But really, I've never had a camera with settings before.
This was my breakfast. Don't tell anyone.
And then it started to rain. So I waited and waited and then I took this.

Now all I have to do is figure out what these buttons and switches do. And what all these numbers mean. And why that little dot is flashing. And what aperture and composition and color and clarity and carat mean. Wait a minute, I'm pretty sure some of those words don't belong in that sentence. But I should know about those too.

See what you have to look forward to when you read this blog?! Fantastic, breathtaking photos of my nutritious breakfast! What, no applause?

  2. Hee hee, cookies for breakfast! I went back and forth about the camera. I originally wanted a Nikon but I wanted more than the D60 and couldn't afford the D90.

    So I ended up with the Canon Rebel XSi. I really want to take some classes because I have no idea how to use it!
