After what seems like forever, I finally did it. I got a new camera! I think I have pestered nearly every blogger that posts photos, for the past couple of years, asking questions about what camera they use, admiring their fabulous photos, envying, crying, stressing and generally making a nuisance of myself. Now if I could just figure the thing out and develop an eye, maybe I can leave everyone alone and entertain myself.
My Sister went out of her way to go pick it up for me and I thank her tremendously. She has informed me I owe her, big time.
Thanks to my kids, for encouraging me and not making me think it was stupid to want something so badly.
A special thanks to Barbara, for snapping me out of it when I told her I had gotten the camera and was too paralyzed with fear to do anything. Her advice, "Just start shooting!" So I did.
It will probably take a long time for me to learn the functions and get comfortable with it, but I hope to have a great time learning. I also hope it will encourage me to actually get out of the house, which will make hubby very happy.
Thank you bloggers, for giving me inspiration!
Wish me luck!
