Oh, Happy Day

My camera finally arrived it all its black plastic glory. It's shiny and new and the best thing i've had since my children.

I don't yet know how to use it,  but one day with this dude should fix that. In the mean time, it's blurry and over exposed images from me.



Thanks for getting the sparklers out for the young ones big brother Jon. You really always have been the  best.

  6. :) I'm smiling because I can totally relate to being so excited about a new camera that you compare it to something as momentous as the birth of your children. Sweet shots already! And like Maisy Dee I'm in the market for a new camera so I look forward to hearing if your new one is all you hope it to be and details of the make and model. Happy new camera day to you x

  12. ooohhh fun! have a great time. these shots look lovely, you will learn the manual settings in no time. I get super cranky when my man uses my baby and switches it to auto mode. Pfft, auto mode, so inferior.
