600 posts!

I love taking photos of my new home and I can't believe I've shared 600 of them with you already! Of course, that's only a pittance of the amount of photos I have on my hard drive :)

I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I enjoy sharing them.

Christmas came early for me

I am so excited because I got a new camera for Christmas! Ok, it's not quite Christmas, yet. And, the camera is second hand, which I don't mind at all. But it was a very good deal and it might inspire me to use settings besides 'auto' :)  It's a Canon PowerShot SX20 IS.

Hubby was keen to check out the zoom, so he took these two shots while standing at the same spot. I think it will do quite nicely! 

But, in checking the manual and settings--and there are a LOT of them!--I might just be in over my head by changing from my point and shoot to this DSLR. But, if all else fails, I can still use the 'auto' setting!
