Once upon a time there was a camera. He was a good Little Camera, doing his best to take excellent pictures whenever he was asked. He went all over town and even went on a couple trips to Boise and a couple trips to Seattle and a trip to Yellowstone. He was a well-traveled Little Camera!
Well, after a few years, he began to get lonely. See, he was the only camera in the room and it was beginning to feel a bit intimidating. So he began to leave little hints as to his loneliness. Occasionally he would not want to take as good of pictures in dark buildings (what do you mean, "user error"?), or he would look so pitifully sad when he would sit in his case. Slowly, but surely, his owner began to get the hint.
Or maybe it's just that she wanted to not necessarily replace him, but give him a buddy and advance in her photographic ventures. Regardless, one day a new camera moved onto the block.
The first Little Camera was a bit intimidated. Charlie (the new camera) was bigger. Much bigger. And Charlie had a couple different lenses, so his nose was much longer.
However, it did not take long before the two cameras were the best of friends...and now they are living happily ever after.
All this to say that I got a new camera! It is a Canon Rebel T1i DSLR camera and so far I love it. My little point-and-shoot will still serve a purpose as well, but this new camera is awesome and I can't wait to learn more about it! And yes, I named him Charlie. :)
Stay tuned for pictures as I learn how to use my fun new toy! :)
