mama has a new camera. (no--not that one)
for those of you (all three of you) that followed me on my other blog, i had promised myself a new camera as a reward for getting healthy--mostly losing weight.
well, not *mostly* losing weight...but losing weight.
however, when my birthday rolled around big red and the boys were stumped.
(they do not know about my favorites list on etsy?)
so they bought me the canon T1i.
it is really something. it's more than something. it's a bit intimidating.
totally overwhelmed--it has a 243 page manual. i think my point and shoot had a 1 1/2page leaflet.
but, i've played with it a bit and am having little successes each time. the thing is, i know that this camera can wonderfully capture and keep tiny moments in time.
so i have a great camera...now i need a great photographer. right now--i'm not great; i'm a beginner. we are all beginners, in the beginning. but, with trail and error and lots of erring, we become better. better than yesterday.
don't we all want to be better than yesterday? and not quite as good as tomorrow? it is something to strive for.
what are you beginning these days?
