How does that song go? Rain drops on Roses, whiskers on kittens … these are a few of my favorite things ..
Well here’s the first item on that list:
Last week, I believe it was Tuesday, it rained all day. I looked out the window and the flowers in my garden were just looking magical. I’d been aching to try out my new camera so I took it out with me and before I knew it I’d taken over 100 photos!
I think this photo of a William Baffin turned out fairly well for someone who’s an armature with a digital SLR camera.
When I go through the photos I took that day I can really see how I progressed with my new camera. The first photos looked very ordinary, but within just a few moments the camera felt comfortable in my hand and I began experimenting with a few of the settings.
I didn’t do much experimenting as there was a very light rain falling and my camera soon had a fine mist covering it. Back indoors I went. I did manage to take quite a few photos in 15 or 20 minutes though.
Someone asked recently in the comment area what kind of camera I have. Well I have three now, but the one that I’ve been talking about lately is my new Canon EOS 30D digital SLR camera. I’m still very green with this camera and it’s many features so I can’t really tell anyone much about it. It did have a number of good ratings though and I’m quite pleased with it so far. I think I’ve taken about 400 pictures to date and the majority have turned out well.
