New Camera

For years now I've been thinking about getting a Digital SLR.  I used to love taking photos until digital cameras came out.  I don't know what it was.  I used to like the individual control, all the lenses, filters, films.  I loved to enter photo contests - even knowing I didn't have a chance of winning.  I just loved everything about it.  Taking your film into the store, waiting a day or two to get them back.  As soon as you paid, you didn't even leave the store before you pulled them out of the top flap envelope.  I missed the excitment.  I missed the skill you needed.

Now I have some of the feeling back.  New lens.  New camera body.  No film, but new SD card.  I bought a photo album and vow to print them out.  But oh the extras!!  Look, now I get to share them with you.  I don't have to drag my album or unorganized envelope out.  I can share my day to day experiences with you through my eyes, no matter where you live.  How exciting is that!!

So now before I pour through the manual and test every possible button.  I share these.  The basics of the camera.  The basics of my life.
