I Can See Clearly Now

I'd been moaning and groaning about my digital camera for a long time. Don't get me wrong, it did a great job for what it was, but I wanted a camera that I could get in close and personal with or long shots of night skies. My older digital just wouldn't do that. My dear hubby has purchased a new camera for me and now I've got a lot of learning to do. I've never used anything but a point and shoot with fixed focus, so I'm even limited on the terms I know let alone how to use them. The picture below is the first picture I've taken with my new Canon EOS 40D and it's also the first spring flower to bloom in my yard.
I've never had a camera that would get in so close and clear.
Now to get out and get to shooting!

Oh, my, those are beautiful pictures! How sweet of your husband to get you the new camera. My digital camera gets blurry at less than a foot, not so great.

Love the pictures... Congrats on the new camera! I NEVER leave the house without my camera these days... Even on just a run to the store!

Hi! What a great hubby! I just love new toys and perhaps you're the same. I'm sure you are!

Perhaps now, Anna and Bob may soon see, great local moon shots from your neck of the woods!

Take Care,

I've already been in touch with Bob and camera settings to get moon shots. I've got a lot to learn, so it may be a while before I get any "great local moon shots" but thanks for your confidence. : )
