After hours of research and mental anguish I gave in and bought the big camera...and I like it so far. It is like someone lifted the haze from the photos. I spent so much time cleaning the pictures up in iPhoto and Photoshop that I didn't know what to do when I uploaded the new ones today and they needed nothing. After finding the best price online I headed to the big box store today and they gladly matched it.
I really think they make their money in these lenses. The one that came with the camera was said to be no good. I however love it after a day. The additional lenses that was bundled with the camera is nice as well but doesn't zoom. It is for distance shots.
Goodbye point and shoot. I will miss your convenience and small light weight handling. But your shots just don't give me the clarity I need.
This big boy came with a backpack. Really...guess I am going to have to get one of those nifty designer bags now. The man bag as I have named it is a bit much for me. I still need to decorate the camera strap. That insures that no male figure in my household picks the camera and uses it!
A much clearer shot of the felt ornaments.
Sweet Mr. Reagan was so kind to let me test my new camera skills over and over.
Lovely new felt flowers and leaves all the way from Europe via Etsy. Perfect for pincushions and hair bows. I couldn't pass up the colors and shapes. You can find them here.
The kids and I have been playing a new game...Sequence. It combines cards and a board game. We are having a ball trying to beat each other every night. As we wind down the summer and get back into the swing it has been great in the evenings to sit around the table and just BE.
On another note it appears that we are having a Photobucket issue related to Happy Loves Rosie blogs. I am sure that she will be fixing this as soon as she can. I must admit it is not my favorite background.
We can't have it all just perfect Wally!
