wait, let me say that in a font more reflective of my excitement:
I got a camera!
(hmm, apparently blogspot is saving money by not offering very exciting fonts)
when my camera died around thanksgiving, I started looking around at what cameras I might consider to replace it on the magical day someone handed me some money. At first it was all an overwhelming mush b/c they all seemed pretty much the same. Even the guy at the Best Buy said that the regular point and shoots were really mostly the same. But I asked a few friends who frequently post gorgeous photos on facebook what I should consider. My friend Rob pointed me to the Olympic PEN E-PM1 and when my tax returns came in, I bought it.
Eventually I will have to figure out how to do more than turn it on, point it in a direction, and take a photo, but as of now that is all I can do and I'm STILL taking better pictures than I have in years!!
so here are some of the shots that I've taken.
obviously, most are of the darling girl...
