My New Toy

A few nights ago, the dude and I headed out to pick up the new toy that we decided to buy with our Christmas money.


I really would have loved to get a DSLR, but it just wasn't in the books at this point. So far, I am really pleased with our choice. It is compact, which makes it easy to carry around. I'm afraid if I did get a DSLR, I would take less pictures because I would get annoyed with lugging it around. It is total upgrade from my old camera. That poor thing wasn't working so well in the end. But, can I really blame it? It was over six years old, had been dropped numerous times, and set down on a birthday cake. I guess I should just be thankful she lasted me as long as she did.

I thought you might like to see some of the photos I took the first day I had the new camera. Can you tell who my favorite subject is?

"Okay, this is getting kind of annoying".
"Seriously. Stop taking pictures of me"
She promptly got up and went outside after this photo shoot.

I also took some other, really random, photos. Of things like door mats, cups, and snow piles. Because I could. And of course, I must show you the first "food" photo that I shot with my new camera:

Now let's hope I can keep this baby out of the cake!
