The difference is amazing!

I knew that the new camera would be a lot nicer than the one we had. However, I didn't realize just how much better. The difference is completely amazing!!!! I still can't believe how well some of the pics I took came out and I am just starting to figure out the camera.

If you have a little extra money to spare (okay, so $1000 isn't 'a litte') you really need to buy this camera. And in my opinion the 75-300mm lens is a MUST HAVE! That is the lens I took most of the following pics with. You get soooo close to the subject! It's just freakin' awesome! Can you tell I'm excited?!?

So, I had to share some of the photos I took yesterday. I took the girls to a park called Carriage Hill. They have animals, old houses complete with people dressed up with 'olden days' clothes, a lake, and walking trails too. It's an interesting place.

I also wanted to show you the blog candy I got from miss Meli Mitchell over at The Glitter Goddess. Isn't this so sweet!?! Thank you so much Meli! I love it! My daughters already tried to sneak my pail away to put their scissors in! Don't worry though, I snuck it right back!



And isn't this card rockin'!? I love it! It looks even better in person!

I'm glad you enjoyed your candy and I hope that it made it to you in one piece! :o)

Hi Heidi! These are stunning photos....my favorite is your little girl by the fence in black and white. It definitely conveys a feeling of wonderment....(is that even a word?) I got a new Nikon D40 a few months ago, and I'm with you, I can't believe the difference between my new camera and my old camera (which was no slouch either)! Can't wait to see more!
