Santa came early!
Dan took me to buy a new camera!  Yeehaw!
Can you tell I'm so excited?
All I did last night was follow him around snapping photos of everything!
It was nuts!  He was such a good subject though!  He even posed for me....
with different hats!  Talking on the phone, working in the garage, cooking in the kitchen!
Well,'s a little hard to cook dinner with a camera in your hand!
The dogs however, were not cooperative at all.

Plus...we have our first grandchild coming in February and are super excited
to take awesome photos!
Check this out....(and I haven't even learned anything yet from the manual!)
Just clicking,la,la!

So this is one of the photos from my Christmas Tree Posting yesterday.....
Taken with my iphone4 (as most of the photos in my blog were!)
I doctored it a bit in Picnik.

And this is one taken last night, undoctored by Picnik except for the
addition of my name.
Isn't it amazing?  Can you see why I'm so excited?
I just have to learn how to use it properly.
Anyone have suggestions on a blogger that does a course that's easy to follow?

I'm now the proud owner of a Canon Rebel T2i!
I love my!
Merry Christmas one & all!
Hope Santa brings you something this awesome!
I feel so lucky!

Congratulations Wendy! Rebel is 550D. It is a beautiful camera. We have a 1000D and a 500D both. You know what eff the manual. Just go on clicking. And once you have mastered this lens, go on to wide zoom lens. can now click Bokeh. Read it up. You'll have fun.

Thanks for the tip Rukmini! I'll definitely go read up on Bokeh! I read through the beginning of the manual yesterday....I think I need lessons...hard to understand alot of it. But, I'll work on it....slowly and for now, it takes awesome photos just by pointing and shooting! Now you go relax in your serene environment...Take care! xo

Ooooh I'm so jealous. I really need to get a new camera. I too have just been using my Iphone, which does okay, but not compared to a great camera! You lucky gal!
