my new TOY!

I have a new toy! Yes, another reason to play instead of work. Hubby and I had been thinking about investing in an SLR camera for a long time and we finally did it. After much research we settled on the Nikon D7000. Neither of us know how to use it yet but we have to start somewhere. There are so many buttons...I may go crazy! For now I'm sticking with the auto mode (which is still far better than my point and shoot!)

I love my new toy but it does come with a slight drawback...I'm finding it's hard for me to put it down long enough to get any jewelry made or house work done or anything else for that matter!

  1. Oooh I would love a new camera - That one looks amazing! My little digi has been playing up, so maybe Santa will bring me a new one! (hint hint hubby!) x

  2. Great pictures, Aunt Kathy! You'd better watch out, though! After I got my camera, I started "playing" a lot, too. Next thing you know I'm getting paid to take family pictures! I know what you mean, though. It's a lot of fun to learn. :)

  3. OH these are WILL have so much fun with your new toy!!

  4. For not knowing what you're doing, the pictures look AWESOME!!

  5. I'm getting a new one for Christmas,do you like the D7000?

  6. Ooooh! I love my Nikon too! Still learning, but watch it! My first
    "real" photos ended up in Somerset Life! The camera did ALL
    the work! Trust me!!!! Love Nikon!!!!

  7. The photos are gorgeous! I LOVE the spider close-up..!!!
