Scenes from a summer's day



My new Nikon D5100 DSLR camera was delivered just this morning, and I already love it so much more than my Olympus.

This camera works indoors and out, unlike the Olympus, which seems to only function outdoors.

Of course, I followed everybody around with the camera, including my daughter and a visiting friend, as well as our doggie, Jolene, who was caught trying to steal lunch leftovers (again).




 
Check out the legs, above. So cute.







My new side table, and a thief at rest, above.

  1. I adore my Nikon, and I'm saving my pennies for a fancier model :) Great shots from around your house, and don't worry- they'll get used to the paparazzi!

    1. I used a Nikon D80 at work and I really liked it. The dog likes it when I take her picture. It gives her more time to get to the food before I stop her! ;)

    1. I will be happy to move the brown jar! Looking forward to more orange flower goodies! Thanks Jill!

      I have several red heads in my family too, including two siblings, although this little one is not related to me. :)

    1. Thanks! Today Jolene took some medication and she can't have her breakfast for three hours. She will spend the three hours crying!

      Summer is indeed lots of fun! :)

    1. Thanks! And this one has video too, so I don't have to carry around my video camera. One less thing to carry is always appreciated when you have kids, right?

  6. oooh new camera! You'll have so much fun :) We borrowed a photographer friend's super duper DSLR once and it was heaven, then I had to go back to my little point and shoot. WHAT a difference!

    1. It does make a difference for sure! Much easier to get a good shot with a good camera.
