Yikes!




Yikes!!!

I have a new Canon camera
and
I am not mechanical .
No
not even a tiny bit.

Yesterday
after
 weeks of being intimidated  by it
I
reluctantly picked it up 
and
took a few photos.

last night in the candlelight  

a fairy in my bedroom

on my bookshelf

I am a lover of fairy tales

mums

so beautiful

hello my old friend

Help!

I couldn't hold the camera still
and
 what about all those buttons !!!

See what I mean ?

  8. I love your photos even while you are learning your new camera.

    I have a little Canon powershot, and haven't even learned what all it can do, yet.

    Have a great week ~ FlowerLady

    Thank you for your kind comments on my blog.

  9. Oh Dottie, your photos are simply beautiful... Look at that MOON!

    Gracious, don't even try to figure out, all the bells and whistles. Not when you can already use it so well.

  11. I have had my camera for about three years and there is still so much I don't know, unlike me I hope that you are wise enough to spend more time with the manual...I always intend to take the time but never seem to get around to it ~ bad, me! But I know you are going to enjoy it immensely.

  14. I have a brand new canon as well and I think your photos look gorgeous. Maybe by this time next year we will learn how to use the high tech. For now-it's all auto for me.
