Foto Story Friday #44 new toy

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek


March 23rd I got a new toy:
Just opened the box.
Unloading the goods.
What? I thought it was MY toy! Troy took the first picture too, what's up with that?!
Ah what a cute little baby tripod!
My sister and her husband each have a Canon and they convinced me to join them in Canon ownership. I'm enjoying learning how to use the functions offered. I'm dreaming of more lenses.
So what have I shot with this baby?
One of my first was of my last year's camera.
I got this nice clear shot of Scott.

Bowl of ice cream anyone?
I don't have a super zoom, but I did have fun trying to get a moon shot. It's not really fuzzy, there were clouds covering the moon. I was also playing with the settings trying to get different looks.

Ah...jealous! You should have a give a way featuring your old camera (hint hint). By the way, your profile picture is a great photo as well.

That would be a good idea, if I didn't have a 141/2 yr old who already laid claim to it!! :)
Thanks, the profile picture was taken with my older Kodak (that my teen daughter has claimed!)
