2 weeks go (it seems so long ago – like it’s been a part of me forever) I became the proud owner of a Canon 60D.
See it? Don’t you think it’s lovely? Don’t you think the light, the quality and the overall perfection of it are just inspiring? Well – it’s because it is inspirational that I have taken over 1000 pictures and some videos since I got it 2 weeks ago. That’s also the reason I haven’t posted in that same amount of time. Who has time to write when there are pictures to take!
Polly. Polly has time to write. She’s been writing constantly these days. She loves little notebooks, pads, pencils, colored pencils and stickers. She leaves me love letters all over the house. I love finding them and seeing what she’s done. She actually can write a few letters and recognizes most of them if you write them for her.
The new camera (aka the third thing I take with me everywhere I go) has a live view mode which allows me to take pictures without actually having to look through the camera. The LCD screen is on a pivot so I can aim in any direction and still see the subject! Such coolness allows me to take accurate self portraits with the cutest, almost 6 month old you’ve seen.
The awesomeness continues with it’s speed and possibilities. Look. It stopped motion and captured Polly in the swing. My old camera would have shown a nice streak that I could have told you was Polly – but this one can prove it!
The high ISO and faster processor make for some incredible shots. Like this. I mean… REALLY. I TOOK THIS and have edited it NONE. I am in love.
What more is there than a sun set sky, a perfect crescent moon and the trees in silhouette. I mean, seriously… Love. That’s why I hold Polly’s hand, carry Kennedy in the baby hawk or stroller and have my camera in my reach at all times. I literally left a conversation mid sentence to go take the above picture. Rude? Maybe. Obsessive? If you want to call it that. Fun? YOU BETCHA!
While I do LOVE my camera, I love who I can capture with it even more. What a guy!
Go Tigers!! Right, Kennedy? :) I love that I could capture her exactly as she looked playing with my pj’s that Saturday morning.
I love that I don’t mind pictures of myself when made with this camera. Normally I am very picky about self portraits and any pictures of me – but look. I think two pics of me in one post is a record.
If you’d saved for 14 months and rolled coins twice, collected Christmas money, birthday money and made countless sacrifices just so you could have the money for the new camera – you’d smile and take your picture in the bathroom mirror too. Don’t judge.
Polly, I said don’t judge! Listen to mama. :)
Kennedy doesn’t judge. She’s too young and enjoys the 1000 photos I’ve taken. She just sits, smiles and allows me to snap away.
