A New Camera

Wednesday evening, June 29

1 (1)After stopping at Perfect Image Camera to pick up my new Nikon D7200, Cerwin went to Home Depot for chapel construction supplies. I stayed in the car to play with my new “toy”, and after doing a few initial settings, I took my first picture: the sign right in front of me. 🙂

We chose to purchase a new camera, because the repair of my Nikon D7000 sensor was half the price of a camera.

1 (3)It is nice having a camera that is working again. It is very similar to the one I did have – but an upgrade with a few new features. The speed of this one makes me realize that mine has been going bad for some time.

3Our next stop was Olive Garden where we used part of the gift card I won at Leslie’s baby shower a few weeks ago.

4 (2)While waiting for the food, I checked our nearby surroundings and experimented with my camera.

Little did he know that I was playing with a new camera. 🙂

  1. Your new camera has wonderful resolution — a good choice! Does it even tell the difference between real coffee and decaf — lol ?! What a wonderful place to live for all but 4 years of your life — were the other 4 years while you were at school?

  2. Looks like your new camera is a keeper. Of course, the camera lady is a pro. My kids took me out for supper tonite, then a quick trip to the grocery store. Think I’ll go to bed early tonight. I only took 3 naps today.

  3. I enjoyed your pictures and can imagine the fun & delight of using a new camera! I especially liked the 1st photo of the horse with it’s ears pricked forward, mane lifted in the breeze & leg lifted in it’s trot. Thanks for sharing your talent and gift in photography.
