I received some wonderful gifts this Christmas – clothes and yarn and jewelry and books and DVDs just to name a few. And yet there’s on present that surpasses all of them. No, it’s not a spinning wheel. It’s a new camera from Dale.
Of course, I told him exactly which one to get. I had been wanting a digital SLR for quite some time and I had gone back and forth on which model. I talked with friends and read reviews but ultimately I decided on the Canon Digital Rebel XTi. I’ve just got a fondness for Canon and that influenced my decision more than anything else.
We missed the part about needing a compact flash card, though, so I couldn’t use the camera until we made a trip to the store yesterday.
This was my first picture with the camera:
This was my second:
I think this is the start of a beautiful friendship.
