Hi everyone. Well, I expect all my American friends are getting excited about Thanksgiving now, and getting all the food in to prepare for the feast! As I only started blogging in October last year, it was the first time that I had really heard about Thanksgiving in a big way. My goodness, I can still remember how astounded I was by all the food that everyone was preparing. I can distinctly remember saying in a blog post how much I wished we had Thanksgiving over here!!
So, we now come to my Sunday Snaps for this week, and I've got a little secret. I'm having a new camera for Christmas, and it arrived a few days ago. Was I a good girl, and did I put it away in the cupboard until the big day? No, I'm afraid I did not! I couldn't resist taking it out of its box and having a little peek. "I'll just have a little read of the Manual" I thought to myself.
Then, you've guessed it, "well, I could take a few photos just to try it out." The make and model is a Nikon D3100 Digital SLR camera, and I am absolutely thrilled with it. For one thing, it's easy to use. Even an idiot like me could work it all out very quickly, so that was certainly a bonus.
Many of my Followers read Desiree's blog, over at Driftwood Ramblings, and she has some amazing photos on her blog. Anyway, she recommended this one to me and, after much research on the internet, I am so glad that this is the one I have gone for.
So, ta da, here are a few of my practice shots :
The camera is now all packed away again in its box!
