so a few weeks ago our nice camera was stolen....out of my car! yeah...nice. i had taken the camera to work with me to get the pictures off of it and onto my external hard drive (yes i could have done this at home...but i wasn't getting around to it and i knew i had a slow day at work). i got the pictures off (thank goodness) and then took the camera out to my car at lunch and left it in there....stupid of me?? yes. when i came back to my car at 5 the camera was gone. i felt awful and violated. what kind of world is it that we don't even feel safe leaving our posessions in our locked car anymore?? we knew we wanted to get a new camera, but it wasn't really in the budget and we do have a little point and shoot that works (it doesn't take very good pictures...but better than nothing).
fast forward to may 20th. our 5 year anniversary. we had a sitter for stone and went out for a nice dinner (we always go to the sandpiper to eat, and don't do gifts for our anniversary). we got home and i was getting ready to get stone in the tub and ready for bed....i happened to glance on our bed and there was a box sitting there...it was a new camera! from my hubs to us! and these were the pictures i found when i fired it up
so we've spent the last week getting to know our new camera. and while we aren't experts, and still have a lot to learn...i think we have taken some good pictures....these are some of my favorites
i know there are a lof of very talented photographers out there...any tips?
