Not mine, my photos. :)
TaDa! bought me a new camera this past Christmas. A snazzy little Cannon Rebel XTi. So after reading the manual cover to cover and another great little find I decided it was time to graduate from manual mode.
I have been dying to try my hand at those awesome photos where the subject is in focus and the background is blurred. Oh how "boutique" that would be.
Having previously failed to get it right indoors, I headed outside. On my way to the mailbox, while all the kiddos (4 today) were nesteled snug in their beds, I took my first attemtps outdoors. It was so bright out though (and a glorious 46 degrees) that I didn't notice the screen screaming at me NO CF CARD until I got back. So off to the "mailbox" I trotted a second time.
One of Grandpa Ralph's birdhouses. This one has tennents!
Not too shabby if I do say so myself.
