I spy

I'm trying to find some time to play with my new camera. As it turns out, my brain has been leaking for the past decade, and I've lost a good deal of my photography knowledge. I have cute kids and automatic settings, so it isn't like I'm at great risk for awful pictures, but I feel like I should at least TRY to remember what's what.

But I hate owner's manuals. So now I'm just playing.

And then there's the shot that illustrates my life perfectly.

My house has some lovely architectural features. I love the beam. I love the trapezoid windows. But they're a pita to clean. Which is why I rarely clean them. So rarely, that I haven't been on a ladder to clean them since... well, since long before this wall sticky was thrown in the air.
It adds character, don't you think?



I hope these shots were from the Nikon sale. We just bought the Coolpix S610 and I am looking forward to using it. On sale for $199.

Nice photos. Nice yarn. :) Another reason to go back to work--I need a camera that will take close-ups like that. Wow!

That is the Nikon D40. I have been longing for an SLR since my 35mm Rebel was left in a parking lot by *someone* on December 23rd, 2000. Ho, ho, ho.
But I couldn't bring myself to pay for the digital Rebel.

This is my first Nikon, and I feel like a bit of a traitor, but I've heard great things and I'm seeing great things for myself!

For the record, my Kodak Easy Share (which is REALLY inexpensive now, compared to the price in 2001 when I got it) takes good close ups. Not *quite as good as this one, and with much more effort, but good!

I had a Kodak easy share...still struggling to get used to my new one...looks like your doing brilliantly at it... close ups are not my forte, I really should put more effort in....
