this weekend was a very exciting weekend. first of all, billy and i attended the break the silence party for silent clark. it was so exciting to get to hear him speak after 100 days of silence. the whole event was such a celebration. billy recorded clark’s first words and put it up on youtube. here’s the video in case you want to check it out.
in other exciting news…i got a new toy!!!!
i have been wanting to get a new, real camera for a while now. i have a point-and-shoot and while it’s great outdoors i can never get a good interior shot. since i’m an interior designer it’s kindof important for me to be able to take photographs in interior settings.
i finally bit the bullet and purchased a camera this weekend. i am so thrilled with my new toy too!!!
in case you are interested this is what i got…
the EOS Rebel XS 18-55IS. i ended up getting the kit that came with a lense.
i also got an additional telephoto zoom lense (EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS).
this is the first camera that i have ever had with a detachable lense. i’ve previously only had point-and-shoot cameras. i’ve also only kept those point-and-shoots on auto. it’s going to be a total learning experience trying to figure this whole lense thing out but i’m enjoying it so far. i took random pictures around the house all day long. i also found taking photos of my dog sweetie to be really fun.
isn’t she such a great little model!
ok. i guess i got a little carried away with the doggie photo shoot. i did take some photos of more than just sweetie though.
i haven’t shared any recent photos of my guest room because i was waiting until i had a new camera. here are a few sneak peaks of some of the things i’ve added. hopefully i’ll get a chance to take the photos of the rest of the room soon.
and one of my favorite photos that i took today was of a candle holder on my coffee table. it was my favorite because i was halfway across the room when i took it. it looks like i was right beside it.
i can’t resist just one more pup pic.
i’m already thinking about the next lense that i want to save up for. its this tamron wide angle lense.
did you all do anything fun this weekend??
