How do I work this??

I don't think I ever explained that the reason I don't post many pics on this site is because I don't have an actual camera. Any pics I've posted I've confiscated off the internet, or taken with my cell phone. The cell phone does pretty well, I think.

Well...as you all are asking me for glorious pics of our holiday...I have to share with you my Christmas present. It's actually for both of us though, although Hubby will swear he's still "entitled" to a gift he's the one that REALLY wanted this.

I'm just the kind of person that likes to "aim and shoot" but he is all into the lenses and stuff. Now I'll get to take some glorious pics of our trip to Mexico...as soon as I learn how to work it. Guess there will be time to read the owner's manual on the plane.

I'm not going to want to come home...you do realize that, right??

All you people that post beautiful pics...watch out!! I'm not promising beauty...but always a story behind each one. :)

Good Morning Grandy,
Wow, what a great Christmas Present. I know you are proud to get it. I am so looking forward to seeing pictures from your trip. I don't have a camera either. The only camera I have is on my Cell Phone. It takes fairly good pictures. I get by with what I have tho. When you have time, stop by. I have a "Bodacious Award" waiting for you. Take care my friend and have a great Tuesday. May God Bless You and Yours. When do yall leave?

Hugs,
Karen H.

Awesome! I've got my wonderful digital point and shoot Nikon that Ed gave me for Christmas 6 years ago. I would love to have an Digital SLR.

You will love the fact that you can take pictures with abandon and if they're not good-you can delete them!

It IS a lovely Christmas present. My Casio Exilim is tiny enough to fit in my purse without throwing my shoulders out of alignment and is pretty much "point and shoot" ... with a selection of settings "visually presented for dummies" like myself who knows little or nothing about photography. I hope the flight is long enough that you'll have time to read & digest the manual ... or maybe you'll sit next to someone who can give you basic usage lessons on the plane? Just be sure to enjoy yourself! Now ... where do you find "stuph" online to post?
Hugs and blessings,

Karen~ Sorry for the delay in getting back on this. I may have learned how to do the award thing now...I'll try it tomorrow or this weekend. Thanks!!

Kelly~ I only hope to be able to take cool pics like you do.

Suzanne~ I definitely like that part.

Storyteller~ I only got to sit next to my husband...who swears he is the walking wikipedia. Oh well...we're figuring it out together.

Faboo~ Get the DS thingy if you want it!! You take great pics and your page is so all about that sometimes. ;)
