We took the kids to the beach today. It’s unseasonably warm, although we’ve been getting a cold front starting last night. Still, when it’s in the low 50s in the first week of December, you have to take advantage of it.
My MIL gave me an early Christmas present this year–a brand new digital SLR that she bought for herself, but decided was too complicated to use. It’s a phenomenal camera that I never would have bought for myself, but am now completely in love with.
I took some pictures of the kids, including these, and am still figuring out how to use the thing properly. Two major assets of this camera over my old analog SLR (beautiful Nikon, I’m sorry I’m seeing someone else now) is the ability to delete bad pictures, and to immediately see the results of my fiddling around with the settings. The learning curve, she is steep, but not as steep as when I had to wait a week to see the results of my fiddling.
I haven’t posted much this week, because I’m recovering from very minor surgery to my right eye. The world was extremely blurry for the past few days, and it was nice to be out in the ocean breeze and seeing clearly.
