{attempting to focus} : my new camera!


For Christmas I received a gift that I have longed for, wished for, dreamed of for quite a while...
...a digital SLR camera!

My husband's parents gifted me the fabulous Canon Rebel XSi (which my wedding photographer had recommended to me as being her pick for a humble beginner, such as myself.) I just might possibly have the best in-laws EVER.

I love it and feel incredibly blessed!

Sadly, for the past two weeks I have had a awful flu/cold, so actually figuring out how to use the camera has been low on the priority list.   Not that I didn't try.  
One day, lying on the couch in a Tylenol stupor, I was reading a book I bought at Barnes and Noble (B&N to the those who know) that revolves around how to use the Rebel.  I was seriously geeking over this book!

Then my dog came over...


He was curious about what I could possibly be doing besides playing with him???
{Please forgive his nasty mouth. We bath him, really.}

Well, I was reading about focus...


...and then, being unable to, um, focus I was obliged to pet my precious pup...


...and his nasty snout.
