Play Date With My Camera

This morning I decided to have a play date with my camera.  Last January, my dear
David decided I needed a new camera and while we were up in Austin he took
me to a camera shop and bought me one.  I am the proud owner of a Cannon
EOS Rebel T5i.  

I have been a bit intimidated by this new camera.  I have used it, or shall I say
it has used me.  This morning I gathered up all my courage and just let 
caution go to the wind and snapped away.  

There are so many things that this camera can do for me,  so I have decided that
we should become best pals.  Get to know one another.   That is important to me
because I want to provide the best content I can on this blog, and the visual 
images are so important to set the mood and tone for my words.

This morning we played in the kitchen for a while.  These are images I see
every day while I am cooking.  Nothing special, just part of daily life.

Then I decided to move into the family room and take another shot
of a spot where one will often find me ….

Just a cozy little corner of my home where I like to spend time
reading with Bentley curled up right next to me.

Now here we are in the living room taking a pic of Mom's 
antique cordials and carafe.

And for today, we are ending with this pic of the mantel.

I am taking tutorials to learn more about the many features of this
camera.  Yes, I am now getting more comfortable and I am
certain that my camera and I will have a great time together.

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
