Nearly Wordless – Wait, What Day Is It Again?

I always get a little discombobulated when we have a holiday. In my mind, it’s Saturday, which normally means no post at all. But I’m a giver.

I know it says nearly wordless, and look! Words! Bear with me. I got a new camera. It isn’t super-expensive or anything, but it’s my first dSLR, and it is intimidating. The how-to guide is 400 pages. I tried it a few times with little success. I hate things that prove that I am make me feel stupid, so I put it back in the box and continued to use my little camera. Until yesterday. I sent my little camera with my daughter on her mission trip and picked up the 400 page manual. I made it 25 pages, and then I gave up and just started taking pictures. I am in love.

And then there are these. Click to enlarge them, too.

And we went to see my friend’s puppies last night. I’ll leave you with this.

You're welcome.

You’re welcome.

  1. Ooh, those are beautiful photos! Yay for a new camera! (I’m still crazy about mine I got a couple years ago – it’s amazing what a new camera can do, isn’t it? Mine even makes it look like I’m a good photographer!)

  2. You did great! I love my Nikon, still after 3 years learning to use it though I have bought a few new lenses for it recently.

    I love, love, love Jasper. I have always been a sucker for the big snakes.

  3. Hey, I have a Nikon D-series, too! Love the pics. Probably need to kill you for the puppy one, though. I’ve been strangely having puppy cravings, and I’m pretty sure the Cap’n will sign me in to the loony bin for sure if I broach that topic…

  4. BC: These pics are awesome, especially of that daring little boy with the Tom Sawyer grin. I wouldn’t be able to say “no” to him no matter what he asked and he’d be spoiled rotten. Your house seems like so much fun!

A penny for your thoughts! And by penny, I mean a warm-fuzzy in your heart.
