We just recently got a new camera. (so get ready to look at some pictures) It’s got bells and whistles – most of which I don’t know how to use yet. I’ve watched some of the DVD on how to use them but then promptly forgot the details. I know it’s gonna be a case of my having to watch it over and over AND just playing a lot with the camera to figure them out. BUT. My camera time is being limited due to my son’s interest in playing and learning with the camera as well! But I don’t mind. I love to look at his photos because it’s like I’m literally seeing the world through his eyes.
It fascinates me how he (and other photos by children) has no fear of zooming in reallll close to his subjects. These are some photos of friends of ours from the other day. They came out to our subdivision to go
snow dirt biking.
Love it. He got right in there.
Lol. I took this one of R and his friend, B, at Chucky Cheese the other day. Mmm. Cotton candy.
The next two are taken by R again.
And this one was taken by my friend, Gail. I really can’t stand photos of me but this one could go into the category of one that I don’t hate. Finally a new photo that I can use as a profile pic on Facebook!
One of the very first people I thought of when we got the camera was Joy. She’s a fellow blogger that I’ve gotten to know through this weirdly personal Blogging world and also semi-regular breakfast/lunch get-togethers. She’s a fabulous photographer. Check out some of her photos here. I love the ones she takes of her dog, Mushu, and just look look at THIS photo! I mean it. Go now. Love it. Eh hem. Okay. Enough slobbering all over Joy. At our most recent breakfast, I kind of felt like a little kid showing her mommy a new toy . “Look Joy. Look at my new camwa”. I felt a little silly but there ya go. I wanted to show her. And she was kind enough to humour me.
That’s Joy on the left. She kind of looks like a proud mama. Oh man. She’ll laugh when she reads that. Sorry Joy! And that’s my good friend and neighbour, Dawn, on the right. She’s listening intently to She. There were four of us who came this time. We missed ya, Emma!
That’s She on the left discreetly ignoring me and the camera.
We still have a lot of snow as you can see by this photo that R took of J just last week. But we’ve finally been getting some spring like temperatures and it’s beginning to melt. As you can see here…

Hopefully I can show summery photos like this one of Joy’s soon. I’m yearning for summer now. Especially since we’re going on a real live holiday. Whoo hoo. We’ve never really been on one. Yes, we’ve been to England and that absolutely lovely. But that was really more to go and see family. This time it’ll just be us, a cabin, and a lake. It’s going to be lovely. This is the place we’re going to in BC. Sigh. I can just see myself sitting by the lake reading a book. Or go for hikes with the family. Nice.
Well. Now, I have to get on with my day. Have a good one!
