New Toy

I’ve caught the intestinal thing that was making Kate’s life miserable the last couple days, and the less said about that the better. Happily, my new camera arrived (Canon Rebel XSi/ 450D), giving me something to play with while I try to remain hydrated. And I have to say, it’s a nice new toy:


I didn’t do anything to that other than cropping and scaling it (4272×2848 pixels being a bit much for the Web), and that turned out nice. I like this toy.

Emmy is being remarkably patient with me, as I play with the various settings (of which there are many). The continuous-drive shots will wait until SteelyKid gets home, though– this week’s Baby Blogging may finally do her newfound mobility justice…
