I just love driving down a country road and seeing these lovely SweetPeas blooming along the side.

The Creek "Deer"

There is a big field across from my place and a little creek runs through the middle of the field. I was standing outside the other evening, taking some shots of little rabbits playing in the field and eating the new little soybean plants, and I just happened to glance over towards the creek and there she stood! She knew I was watching her and she made an attempt to go back across the creek but she didn't. Too my surprise she walked on down the creek and then turned around and came back to this same spot. Of course she kept her eye on me the whole time. The sun was sinking fast and most of the photos didn't turn out like I would have hoped but this one is half way decent.

YaY ..... my new toy!

Totally cool camera! I ordered it on Tuesday and received it yesterday, Thursday. and FedEX are fast fast fast! Do I love it ...... of course I do! Lots of improvements over the original Digital Rebel. More bells and whistles! The larger LCD is wonderful. I can actually see the preview without putting on my glasses!

Will I be able to shoot better images ... NO Some people actually think that buying a new camera (DSLR + more megapixels + more bells & whistles) will enable them to produce beautiful photos. This is sooooooooo not true! I have seen beautiful images created with a P&S 2mp camera. It all depends on the person behind the camera and sometimes the glass in front of the camera! ha I don't have the best glass (no L's in my bag) in front of my Canon but my photos don't look all that shabby.

And, of course I haven't even had a chance to shoot anything with the new 30D yet because it is RAINING! It always happens to me .... buy a new camera or a new lens and it will rain for days! It does look like the rain may be ending later today tho. I certainly hope so .... my "shutter" finger is getting real "itchy" .... gotta try this new toy out. Who knows, maybe I won't like the 30D as much as I thought I would and send it back :o) NOT A CHANCE IN HELL of that happening!
