I'm in love, I'm in love, and I don't care who knows it!!

Quick- name the source of that quote!! 

Remember when I said I had an announcement? Well, here it is.

That's right... I got my very first DSLR. Oh my word, I am so excited. It is a Canon Rebel T1i. I opened it last night, and it was love at first sight. This thing can't take a bad picture. I'm pretty sure it's impossible, actually. The ability to focus it manually is incredible, the bokeh and macro are perfect, and it's just amazing. I will still use my little point and shoot for a lot, I'm sure, because there are some things that I'll prefer about that, but I am so excited to take this next step in photography!!

Last night, I was taking pictures until I could barely see outside. And then, this morning, I was up at 7:40 am ready to go again. I even went outside with it without eating breakfast first. A miracle in and of itself!! Ha. I walked for at least a half hour with it, learning how it worked, how to get it to focus right, and just getting to know the camera. Needless to say, over a hundred pictures later, I'm happy.

So, I am excited! Just wanted to let you all know! :) Have a great Wednesday. I'll post more pictures soon.

PS- The quote is from Elf. Funniest movie ever. 



  1. Oh, goody! Can't wait to see all the beautiful photos you take!

    I probably don't even need to tell you this, but it's amazing the difference a DSLR makes!

    And Elf? Best. Movie. Ever.

  2. Congratulations on getting a new camera! I'm sure you'll have lots of fun, can't wait to see your pictures!! :)

  3. How exciting!!! It's beautiful! Congrats & have fun with your new friend =) xoxo
