New Camera? Old Camera?


Guest Photographer: DH decided to try his hand at photography.  He's not as enthusiastic as I, but he gave it a whirl using my old Canon. Maggi didn't seem to want to cooperate, but she posed with a little help from me.  Not bad for Jim's first photo, don't you think?  Do you like the hat?

  3. The hat makes you look like a Santa Fe native. Getting dogs to pose is sometimes a trick.

    Glad that you have found a helpful camera salesman. That is certainly very beneficial. When we bought Julie's first DSLR, the salesman said, "If you buy this camera, you also get me." We have taken him up on his availability and helpfulness multiple times, and have bought a second DSLR, several lenses, two tripods, and a variety of accessories from him.

  4. I think Jim has been watching over your shoulder and has been secretly learning from you. Or maybe he just has natural talent! Yes, I like the hat too.

  12. Yes! Love the hat; suits you just fine. Maybe Maggi would have been happier if she'd had a doggie hat -- or maybe one of those fancy Santa Fe collars with the silver medallions. Oh, wait. That was me. I wanted one of those cool Santa Fe belts.

  14. Very well done, DH. Kate, I am jealous about the hat. Whenever I go to the West, my eyes get big looking at the cowboy hats, the fancy belts and the fancy boots. On occasion, I have been known to succumb to covetousness and actually buy them! But, when does a guy in Connecticut get to wear them?
