yes, i needed it!

once again, a big thank you goes out to kelli for hosting show & tell. make sure you check out the long list of all who play along.


this week is going to be short and sweet for me. i'm on my way up to the mountains for a women's retreat. but i wanted to get this post in, so here it is:


this is my newest camera. what!? a new camera you say. yes, a new camera.

i have a very nice camera that i absolutely love. but i wanted something small that i could just keep in my purse or the car, in order to catch any quick and spontaneous photo ops. i'll be taking this with me this weekend to see what quick and spontaneous shannigans i can capture ;)

a couple of people asked what kind of camera and/or lens i have in order to capture the pics of the lions a few posts ago. i have a canon digital rebel xt slr. like i said, i love it. it was a christmas present from don and the kids a couple of christmases ago. then on mother's day, they gave me a zoom lens which i had been dearly wanting. it is a canon 70-300mm. and i love it, too.

so there you go. i'm off to the mountains. hope everyone has a nice weekend.

What a great little camera.

I am still trying to get the habit of taking the camera wherever I go. I am not accustomed to being the photographer in the family. Blogging is teaching me new skills!

Enjoy your retreat. We look forward to a report of your good and blessed time.

Pictures, pictures, pictures! My hubs just ordered us a new one today. Because I have gone through THREE already this year. It must be some kind of record.

I have a photosmart too, mine is a 435, it's a cheapy, but it suits it's purpose.

BTW, I love the tag Jennifer did for you! I can't wait to see what you come up with!

God Bless,
Amber
