Just Playin' Around...

Last year we gave our oldest daughter a Nikon D5000 (DSLR) camera for her graduation present. She was so surprised and happy with the gift and carries it with her everywhere. To our surprise, our youngest daughter, upon seeing it said that she would like one as well. That definitely made it easy for us!
When we were deciding what camera we were going to give our oldest daughter, Mr. Fanatic really liked Nikon. But having seen so many gorgeous photos taken by talented bloggers with a Canon Rebel, I really wanted  to get her a Canon.  Mr. Fanatic won out last year.

This year, I chose the camera, and for Jenny's graduation present this year we gave her a Canon Rebel T3.
Of course, I've been playing around with it and it takes some great photos. Not sure how I'm going to go back to my Powershot!
Here are some photos taken with the Canon, just on the auto setting:

I think I'm going to have to ask for one for a combined Christmas and Birthday present with some extra birthday money thrown in! Either that, or I'm going to have to sell something! Seriously!

Hope you are having a good day! It is really hot here!



  1. Uh Oh... you see...they're addictive but worth every penny!!! Get one so you and your daughter can share some great a 50 mm or a long distance lens...better thought...get them for deserve it. Me and My Canon...we're best has opened so many doors for me!!! I've even photographed our Governor and his wife!!!

  2. You make me want to run out and buy a Canon Rebel even more then I did 5 min ago! I love that camera

  3. Beautiful Pam! I have a very inexpensive camera in comparison, but I have gotten very good at knowing how to operate it, lighting, etc. It really takes practice.

  4. Yay! I think this comment may actually go through to you! I would love a new camera for Christmas this year too. I am glad you posted this because I can look at the photos and see some real quality as to what this camera may offer. Thanks so much!

  5. Beautiful pictures! We always take better care of our kids than ourselves don't we! Looks like a winner choice!

  6. Now I am going to have to go get a new Rebel! I have an older model and it is time to upgrade!!! Those pictures are beautiful!

  7. Your garden is so very serene.
    The clarity of the photos is amazing.

  8. The pics are amazing!!! It's riciculously hot here too. Yesterday was record breaking at 103.
