If you follow me on Twitter, then you'll know about my new toy. I purchased a SLR camera with my student loan, as I was sick of the poor quality pictures my point and shoot camera produced. I have been playing with it since I got it last night and I am SO happy with the quality it produces. Above are just a sample of the pictures I've been snapping, including a sneak peak into a collective haul/sale shopping post. I took several pictures of my mothers beloved orchids and they came out pretty good! I've got a book on the camera plus a bigger and faster SD card on the way so I hope that my pictures will get better as I learn! This is just one of the exciting things to come to enhance my blog, I can't wait to reveal the rest!
