A New Toy

Monday, January 2, 2012

I hope every one had a  wonderful Christmas and your New Year started out great. I'm so excited to tell you that my husband surprised me with a new camera. I had no idea that he was planning this. A big box arrived for me and when I opened it and saw what was inside I almost fainted! I went right into the ugly cry LOL. He got me good, he and my daughters kept this secret from me for days. I can't believe no one slipped before the camera came. This is the camera  I received,

My camera came with a carrying case two lenses and a strap. It was a great package deal and I'm  so grateful to my husband for this gift.   Here are a couple of not so good shots of Bijoux and Paris taken when I was clueless.  I took them on the day the camera came.








I've been practicing... A LOT! is it wrong to love an inanimate object? if so I'm sorry, but I'm loving this camera.  I will have a new project to share soon, as soon as I feel a little more satisfied with my pictures.I've got a lot more to learn.  Happy New Year !

  7. Lucky you! That is a fabulous camera! I don't think anything can help my photography, but your pictures when you "didn't know what you were doing' are so vivid!
    Have fun with your new toy!
