Embrace the CAMERA

No seriously, I'm embracing my camera.  Awhile back, I started selling stuff on Etsy to finance my need to buy MacBook Pros and Canon DSLRs... and finally made enough money to buy a new camera.  The Rebel XT had seen better days.  After lots of long hard thinkings, I decided to buy the Canon 60D with the 18-135mm lens.  And I looooooove it.



I love it so much that I forgot how to take pictures (lens cap off!) and strike really awesome poses whilst I shoot.  36 weeks pregnant + running 3 miles + awkward clothes = really great picture.



(I would like to thank Victoria for taking these pictures and then continuing to be my friend.)

I tried to get Finley to take a picture with me using the awesome swivel screen--but he just wanted to grab the screen, so I have a dozen pictures of me looking awesome with him lunging toward my camera.  Also we were doing some online shopping, so I let Finley pick out which credit card to use.



Sometimes I get up in the middle of the night to hold it and I stare at it and say, "My Preeeecioooooous..."  It's normal.

I'm looking forward to learning more about how to use the camera, because it is currently still a little daunting and certainly has not turned me into the next Ansel Adams or Annie Leibovitz.  Maybe next week?

  19. i thought the sentence about getting up in the middle of the night to stare at and hold something precious was going to be about Finley. Nope. Camera. I get it.

    Remember when my car got broken into and they stole all our craft supplies? Then upon discovering they'd overlooked my camera, I clutched the camera bag to my chest like a mom who'd just found her lost child? It's normal.
