A new leaf – a new camera

One of the photos I took with my new Canon EOS 40D

 

It finally happened. I entered the digital age of photography. After waiting for 2 1/2 years, I was finally able to buy my new camera, the Canon EOS 40D with a 17-85 mm zoom lens. I couldn’t be happier with it, although I spent more than I’d originally intended. I needed a camera badly, and this fits the bill; it should serve me well for years to come through many travel adventures. Now if I could just learn how to operate it. The display panels, menus, buttons, and knobs are a bit baffling to me, and I started wading through the 196-page user manual tonight.

Now I know what I’ll be doing for the rest of the winter vacation. And you, dear readers, can look forward to LOTS of juicy photos from me in the near future.

 
  

My friend took this photo right after we bought my new camera – it’s beautiful.

 

This is mine.

 

 

What better way to end an afternoon of shopping than with food? This was at the Long Chao Shou restaurant.
