I'm So Excited

Frost melting

I have been waiting for over a week for my new camera, a Canon 50D to get here. I am a total beginner who knows nothing about shooting manual, so I probably started with more camera than I needed, but I couldn't resist. It came last night and I have been reading the owner's manual ever since and I am 2/3rds through it. I have taken a few automatic and semi-automatic shots and I can already see an amazing difference in the photo images over my old point and shoot. This is more fun than I even imagined it would be. While I still don't know what I am doing, I thought I would post a couple of pictures from this morning anyway.

The girls were also excited to see that Mom had a new camera. They kept asking me when it was time to take their pictures, but I was still reading the owner's manual. Dad broke out some inexpensive kid's cameras that he had been saving for the right occasion and the girls got to play with new cameras of their own too.
