New Camera

A couple weeks ago, I splurged and bought a new camera - a Canon Rebel XT.  It has mostly been in it's case since I bought it, because I have been a bit overwhelmed with all it's features and I didn't want to break my new camera because I didn't know what I was doing.  Today I got brave and took it out to the backyard to "play" with it.  It was fun, and I didn't break it.

Here are some of the pictures I took.  I am still just using the auto settings,  but the camera is very fast and the pictures turned out OK.

Maggie sunning herself on the deck.

Bolsey being silly - he kept trying to eat the shrub behind him.

The last of this year's roses.

One of the neighbour's flowers peaking through the fence.

A shrub in it's fall colours.

A spider.  Normally, I am creeped out by spiders, but I think these ones are cool.


  1. oooh...I'm jealous Kim!

    the spider shot is cool- creepy, but cool

    amanda- not wendy

  2. Those are some pawsome pictures! Why is almost everybody getting good cameras except my Mommy??? I have to convince her to get one soon. But she kept saying that digital cameras are better to handle & are less cumbersome. She can just slip it in her pocket anytime!
