Miscellaneous Images of Ecstasy

This morning, it was like one of those dreams where you get something that you really want but are afraid that it won't be there when you wake up.

But the box was still there, sitting on my bed, just waiting to be explored.

Thanks to Kate's  advice, I decided right off the bat to begin shooting manual. It wasn't as hard as it could've been, because I have been playing around with my grandmother's camera for a while on manual and had learned a few basics. But I also stuck close to the instruction booklet.

^something for the new better than best contest and something beautiful for snap and share^

Grace Loves the Beatles

I saw the way that this picture turned out and almost died of happiness. Again.

Love, love, love.

Of course, even before I got out of the house into the front yard, right as I woke up (read: pajamas) I wanted to use it. So I went to the little girls' room and took a few shots of T.

I like the one above a lot.
After that and after I got dressed, M said, "Can we go outside and take pictures?" 
Man I love her.

She still had some bed-head action going on, making her look like a... actually I don't really know what she looked like, but it was quite amusing.

This camera = swoon.
