Look out world, someone gave her a real camera-- now there is no stopping the obsessive-compulsive need to catalog every facet of their lives with a photo! *insert evil laugh*
My fourth kid arrived in the mail a week ago, but I've been waiting for the lens (which I ordered separately) to follow suit. Today it finally arrived and oh, what fun I had walking around with a big clunky camera hung from my neck, snapping pictures with a satisfying little click that just makes me happy. Still don't know what I'm doing (taking a class in the fall!) but even a newbie like me managed to take some decent pictures with this baby. Depth of field is like magic. I've been trying to achieve it with my point-and-shoot and it has been such an annoying, fruitless endeavor. Not any more! Thank you J, baby, for spoiling me!
Seriously, I took this across a table FILLED with stuff and it just blurred everything out and focused in on what I wanted. That silly face. Love it.
This one just makes me laugh. He's three and apparently doesn't have the arm-strength to open the slider. Never has. So he usually just stands outside and shouts "Let ME IN!" until someone does. Usually annoying, but today I caught a picture of it so someday I can show him what I put up with when he was this age.
