|you thought I was joking about the apple, didn't you?|
You know why?
I finally gots me my very own big girl camera! See, at Christmas time all sorts of folks get snazzy NEW technological goodies and then they sell their OLD ones on Ebay and Amazon. And because a very clever girl once told me that the camera (as long as it's decent) itself is not as important as the lens, I went cheap and old- Canon Digital Rebel 300D. With the kit lens, battery, charger, USB cord, and carrying strap included, it was just $150 . A really REALLY special purchase for me but a super good deal in terms of what I got. Winning! Someday, when I prove I'm worthy, I'll graduate myself to a snazzier lens.
Anyway, I have no clue how to use it. Fine...HAD no clue. But then I read the manual and I took photos non-stop for the last 24 hours (itty bitty pause for attending Mass. Joy-kill husband claimed I wasn't allowed to take pics while receiving the sacrament.) and now I can actually take pics in manual mode that aren't blurry. Baby steps, baby steps...
These are coming straight out of the camera (or "sooc", as photog peeps say. Every hobby has it's own secret language don't it?), no cropping or editing, because I want to be able to come back and look at these someday when I know what I'm doing and say "Hahahahaha! I was like wittle baby pwaying wiff big kid fings". And because I am lazy.
Hey it's also Sunday! So I wore stuff!
Okay, so yes. The ISO was too low. Or something. I'm pretending I know the words, but really I don't. But it's dark. Kinda moody and dramatic though, yes? No?
How about this, then? Is this moody and dramatic? Just bad? Okay, fine.

Um, are you in love with my camera yet????
Do you want to see what Tommy made us for lunch???
Aren't question marks the best???
Okay, fine. I swear I'll stop. But I think I might just have to dust off ye olde Flickr account, yes sir. Until then, hop over to Fine Linen & Purple for more outfits and fewer apples.
