Grown up toys are way better than any kid toy. And I got a toy for Christmas.
This is the first picture I took with my new camera
. I hadn’t figured out how to turn on the “live view” so I had no idea at what I was aiming. Bill pointed out to me that there was a viewfinder – oh, duh
My next shot was at the table to my left and I got this picture of a camel’s rear end and an overturned train car. The clarity had me all giggly.
I spent my day reading the quick start guide – half of which made no sense to me (aperture size…shutter speed…), but I practiced all the point and shoot features.
Good looking faces. They look good in real life. I’ve never had a camera that did them justice.
Some of our ornaments. I’m loving being able to focus on the one object among many others.
My dog did not like all the whirring and clicking. I tried to get a better shot of her, but she hid under the porch swing.
Did you have a white Christmas? Obviously, we did not. I rather enjoyed sitting outside playing with my camera. We might get some sleet tomorrow, but then the temps go back up. Yes, I am rubbing this in. I’ll be back up in the cold before you know it.
This picture is my slippered foot. I was practicing moving the point of focus to something off-center.
This is my favorite picture – the last one I took. I had to concentrate the focus area to a smaller size to get past the rails of the deck and to the nails on the handrail by the steps.
I never thought a camera would make me so happy. I’m so glad to have a husband who spoils me because I never would have bought this camera myself. In a month or so, expect lots of pictures of me as I practice the timer thing-y. In order to replenish our savings account, I’ve decided to eliminate our grocery budget. I should look rather svelte by spring.
