I'm on a bit of a hiatus. I'm waiting for something very important to arrive in the mail.
Monday night I sat down to post all the pictures I'd taken up east. It wasn't as time consuming as I thought, because only 1 out of 5 was usable. As much as I love our little camera for ease of use and the remarkably clear video it shoots, it does have some short comings. No Red Eye Reduction. The shutter speed is slow - bad news if you are a baby or a dog.
I'm taking so many pictures these days a new camera was easy to justify. Going off the recommendation of a few friends, I saved up my shekels [Yiddish for "Target Gift Cards"] and waited for a sale, and bought myself the Canon SD1000.
According to UPS, my package was shipped yesterday, from the "US", and will be arriving by the 17th. Forgive me for thinking it will be here sooner. Hoping for today.
Can't wait to learn to use it. I'm hoping it's easy, because I am the girl who got a "C" in Photography.
[By the way, I was pleased to find that spellcheck did indeed have a correct spelling for "shekels", because I didn't.]
