Sound the horns, shoot the canons, we bought a new camera.
Sleeker and sexier than our last, it fits in the palm of my hand (My palms are big, they match the rest of my hands, so I’ll add that two could easily fit)
It will never be this grandaddy of them all camera. But it will diminish the likelihood of revisiting the images of the girls as babies and feeling a bit like we are walking through an abstract art exhibit.
It also won’t show images of me as a tall drink of quirky, heavenly, blonde bossiness. I get plenty of bossy of another kind. Every day, particularly around three o’clock and when the issue of sharing princesses comes up.
Though I’ve been toiling night and day (maybe more like alternating afternoons and Tuesdays) in the garden, it likely won’t take any pictures along these lines.
The purchase was inspired by these girls
And this friend.
So far it’s taken only one picture, which for whatever reason, I love. When it comes to cameras, if they take a shot you like, and it happens to be of you, and it’s taken at unforgiving close range, by your husband, on the hottest, stickiest, most vile personal body odor provoking day, well than I think its worth its flashing weight in gold.
Well you know if you zoom in close enough on certain spots in a garden no one will notice the weeds in the background or the dead delphinium to the right (dang it I just can't get those things to survive here!)
But thanks for the compliment 🙂
You and your babies
Woo hoo! Uh. What kind of camera is it? I am kind of in the market?
It's a Canon. It's little, silver and equipped with the mom-of-toddlers-and-a-photo-loving-hound image stabilization feature. Purchased at the always reliable Target. I'll check when I get home the exact model.
If I keep getting a look at how adorable you are, I might have to stop coming here. It is bad for my self-image.
And my camera? I'm totally intimidated by it and spent much of my vacation using my old point-and-shoot.
I think I might have to take a class. Gah.
Yes, it's adorable, the photo, but it looks nothing like you, IMHO!
You're adorable, just adorable in a different way. Actually, hell, you're a hot mama!
(Not that I'm crushing on you or anything. No, not that.)
Congratulations! Hopefully you will learn how to drive your camera better than Bossy can drive her's… there's something about a manual that is thicker than War & Peace…
Thanks for the comment and encouragment!
Hope you enjoy your new camera!
*That's* what you look like in a close up on a hot, unbearably sticky day?
A similar shot of me would require some airbrushing.
Enjoy the camera. We have a Canon too, which I love, except for the fact that the digital display hasn't worked since my boy stepped on it two years ago. So I basically have no idea how my pictures have turned out until I plug in the USB on my computer. One step forward, two steps back…
I love the picture, too.
If I tell you something, promise not to gasp?
Still don't have a digital camera.
Cell phone camera, but the other is an old 35 mm, with film.
I love a good camera. Can wait to see a sampling of your fine picture-taking skillz.
I get it. My husband got me making the kookiest face ever, and yet I like it!
May your new camera capture lots of great girl moments!
