The Most Beautiful Thing in the World...



Oh, yeah.
You're lookin' at it.


Sometimes it pays to whine.  ;-)

I've been experiencing a three day bout of nausea,
so I plan on spending the afternoon curled up in bed
with my brand new, Nikon D5000 User's Manual.

After perusing it and taking a few test shots,
I suddenly feel very, very blonde.
Warning, steep learning curve ahead!

Edited to add this photo,
just taken with the new D5000...(click to enlarge)



Wow!
Havok's eyes have never looked so blue!
And no fancy post-editing either, like I usually have to do.
I think I'm gonna like this!

Happy Monday!

Go to the Pioneer Woman's blog, and click on her photography archives, with Miss Booshay...You'll have it down in a knack, techniques and simplicity you'll not find in the manual.

woo hoo! that's exciting! i just got a new sewing machine and i'm feeling a lot like how you are right now!

I think the nausea is worth it if you got this camera! I must not be whining enough because I am still dreaming of a Canon Rebel T2i. Tell me Anne, why did you choose the Nikon over a Canon?

Happy picture taking!

Okay, I am usually very good at not envying my peeps, but I have to confess on this one! You are one lucky gal!!! I was hinting at a real, grown up camera for Christmas, I got another point and shoot. Not quite the same as I was thinking...

I know you will have many wonderful things to take pics of! Have fun and enjoy it enough for the rest of us!

Anne, I'm happy for you, I have a terrible time taking good pictures, I don't know if it's the camera or me~~~ but I'm pretty sure it's me. Blessings~~~ Daphne

Hurrray!!!!! Yes! I am all for getting what you want/need and you did good grll. and hey, its a tax write off....so you go .

Jenny Fowler said...

Congratulations! Glad you got it. Enjoy yourself!

Privet and Holly said...

YES, I KNOW that "blonde" feeling with something new. I am NOT a manual reader, but instead, an experiential learner.... and some things I intuitively "experience" faster than others! I received a camera for my b-day and am still crawling along with it. I am going to enroll in an on-line camera class that is for beginners like me. I HOPE that you are feeling better soon, but glad you have something fun to play with while you are under the weather : ) Take care of yourself! xx P&H

So happy for you! You'll have to let us know how you like it because I suspect that I'm not the only one out here that's dreaming of a good camera...enjoy!

Sorry you are feeling icky. What a beautiful fur-child you have and yes those eyes are over the moon. Happy photoing...

Great shots! I've been thinking about a new camera, too, but haven't started saying it out loud yet. My birthday isn't until August, so...

winnibriggs said...

At least you have something to concentrate on while you are laid low. By the time you are up and about those 'blonde' moments will be forgotten in your excitement at using your new baby.

Sarah said...

I'm in the market for a new camera, so I'm glad to see this post. I'll take a look at this one. Love the shots. ~ sarah
