New Camera

Okay peeps we got a new camera. . . .Yes, that was how I got the picture of Bud's nasty toe. . .Sorry. . .

Don't mean to seem like I am copying Ree but WOW will it take some SWEET pictures! ! !

These are pictures I took of a flower arrangement Bud gave to JJ's mom for her birthday. . .I was playing with the Macro lens.






Bud was shooting some pics with it and got one of Birddog. . .

My Birddog complained all night long when he couldn't watch Boston Legal due to all the election coverage. . ."Do they not realize that not everyone wants to watch this shit all night long? Cover it on the news and let us watch tv."


Beware! I will be posting pictures as we learn to use our new toy! ! !

Glad you got a new camera. What kind did you get? Do share! Nice shots.

So is Bud going to be able to play basketball?

Hope blogger cooperates this time. This is the second time I am trying to post this. ARGH!

That is funny about Boston Legal, but he does have a point!! I mean, how much can the news really cover before it gets repetitive!

I'm with julie - what kind?

I'm waiting for some serious macro-lens close-ups of the gross toe.

You should submit that to http://www.showmeyourwound.com/.

YUCK!

Julie - We got a Nikon D50 and it came with 2 lens'. . .We have a lot to learn about it and still have some things that we want to buy to get even better shots of the boys playing ball. . .

Thanks on the nice shots compliment. . .I will have to use all of you for opinions on does and don'ts as we play with the different settings, etc.

Yes, Bud will be able to play basketball. . .He goes to PT today and will go I believe 3 times a week for the next 2 or 3 weeks. . .They are doing the toe on the 17th and the doctor said that he would be back and ready to go on the following Monday (20th). . .Their first game is Dec. 1. . .

Scoop's first game is next Monday (13th). . .WOW. . .

Claudia - Birddog is a HUGE Boston Legal fan! He gets mad at us and will even leave the room and go to another if one of us is on the computer in the living room typing so that he doesn't get distracted.

OK Tiggerlane - I put the camera specifics in my reply comment to Julie. . .

Think I might just do the show me your wound. . .LOL - I'll macro it again after they do the procedure. . .Bet that will be just about as nasty. . .

I love it! Someone else in love with their new camera! I got a D70 and I don't have a macro lens, but I want one terrible!!!!

Have you found flickr yet? You can post your pictures there, post them to groups and have comments. Great way to get feedback on your pictures and helpful hints on how to improve.

Vicki I know several of our fellow bloggers use flickr. . .I have not yet looked into that but sounds like I need to. We'll have to share as we learn! ! !

Silly you keep me in stitches! ! ! I wish I had known you last year when we about moved to your territory. . .

JJ's momma's birthday was the day of Winter Ball. . .It was ALL HIS IDEA to give her the flowers. . .
