Merry Christmas to me!



For a while now I've been wanting a really nice camera. As I've gotten into using photoshop and taking more photos since Lucy was born it became more and more apparent that our Pentax Optio just wasn't going to cut it. It takes pretty good pictures outside, but inside it's crap and it's pretty slow and when you're trying to shoot something as quick as Brad that just doesn't work. Anyway, Joe and I had been discussing getting a DSLR and then a couple of weeks ago we found out Cannon had a great rebate going on and decided to go for it. Joe said, you won't be expecting a Christmas present, right? Right.

After several e-mails to the camera shop in Brooklyn about why it took them so long to get it here (closed for Jewish holidays, bah!) it finally arrived today!!!! I'm so excited! It's going to take me a while before I really learn how to use it, but the camera is so smart it's hard to take a really bad photo. I'm totally going to be such a geek running around carrying a huge camera, but I don't care!!

Here are a few shots I took just to try it out. You can expect more to come! I think I'll have some shots of the kids Halloween costumes uploaded tomorrow. You don't want to miss that!

Nice! Very, very cool. *sigh* I'd love to get a nicer camera-- but alas I am settling for a new vacuum. :) Can't wait to see the Halloween pix!
