When I started this blog over 5 years ago I had a film camera and used to get the rolls of film developed along with a CD of digitized images. I decided to wade into the digital camera world and bought as versatile a point and shoot as I could afford. I was converted immediately and used that camera hard. Well over a year ago my old computer stopped playing nice with my camera so even though I could still take pictures, sharing them was a challenge. Then my camera died completely and I have only had the sad little lens in my phone. Mind you I am grateful I had that much for the sake of not missing things like birthdays or spontaneous silliness but I have sorely missed being able to take nice pictures. I may not be as gifted as Hilary is with a lens but I was learning and I enjoyed playing. I've been saving little by little that whole time and I got a nice bit of change or my birthday back in October and again for Christmas. I set it all aside to be able to get a nice digital SLR. I played around with different cameras, researched the features, kept looking for deals. I settled on the model a while ago and last week found a sweet deal.
I am sooooo excited. This week I have to cover for another girl at work who is off so I have less time than usual to play with my new toy (and Lord have mercy, there is a time crunch these days anyway!). But here, for our viewing pleasure is the first original Slice of Lime in over a year, not taken with my phone or by someone else.
My Canon and Me*
Now she just needs a name...
*Yes, I'm in my tatty old bathrobe in my bathroom mirror so it's hardly an auspicious beginning but hey, it's like Christmas morning when you have your jammies on. Who goes and dresses up before playing with a new toy?
