|The only good mirror in my house is in my bathroom, so enjoy the|
lovely towel in the backdrop.
I have been wanting a new (real) camera for about a year now. I loved the quality of pictures I knew I could get with a Digital SLR (single-lens reflex) camera. I also loved the idea of buying one now and practicing with it before our big trip across the pond so that I could actually know what I was doing while
Two things were in my favor, though. Time and a desire to buy used. My good friend Ebay did not disappoint, and after browsing for a few weeks I found a refurbished Canon Rebel XTi with extras for almost half the cost of a new one. High five, baby. Now I have lots and lots of time to decode the manual and practice and enjoy it. I would say at this point I have a most basic, basic, basic understanding of how it works, but I've got miles to go. We are going to the Grand Canyon in a couple weeks and that will be my big test.
But for now, please enjoy the photo of me with my comfy brown vest and damp orange towel backdrop. Worth every penny, don't you think?
