A Surprise from the Hubby
As I said last week, I got my new Epson printer after years of saving for it. It's awesome, and all I have to do now is sell some prints on Etsy so that I can use it!
Richard surprised me with a gift yesterday--a new camera to go along with the printer! I have to say, I'd been drooling over digital SLRs lately, but thought I'd have to start saving again. But no!
The new camera is a Nikon D60. It came as part of a package deal that includes two lenses, so last night I played with it a little bit--here are some of the first set of pictures.
I'm going to repeat again how much I love digital cameras. A few years ago I even bought cheap little $20 digital cameras for the kids, because then they could take as many pix as they wanted to without incurring any cost (Highly recommend it to all you parents and grandparents out there--it was fascinating to see what they wanted to take pictures of when turned loose with a camera of their own).
So here you see funny Jenny and sweet Katie. I especially love the fact that because I used the telephoto lens for the picture of Katie, the junk in the background is all blurry...
