I am not one to read the directions or manuals for ANYTHING. If I can't figure it out…I find someone that can. I may have only married for this reason. That and dishes up in really high cabinets. Moving on…I need a man. It is sad and pathetic, but I don't want to put furniture together, install software on my computer, figure out the espresso maker for the first time…you see where I am heading. I am a directions loser. Then I got a new camera for Christmas, telephoto lens and a MACRO lens. I am so excited and my husband is thrilled to get my old digital camera. I started back to school with the kids this week and I haven't had very much time to play with the camera and the macro lens just came the other day. I AM TAKING THE MANUAL UP TO BED WITH ME. Yes, I am going to pull back my pretty Anthro duvet, slide under my silky blue sheets and cuddle up with my Cannon manual. These are just a few of the first pictures I took today with the macro. I was just messing around and the lighting was horrible, but not bad for just point and click. I can't wait to see what they look like after I READ THE DIRECTIONS:-)

I love you sweetie! I am so proud of you. I wish I would have been awake to see that. 😉
You might not need to read the manual! The pictures are great 🙂 I don’t like to read directions either! My dad & I put together two bookshelves for my studio, he wanted to read the directions, I did not. Thanks for visiting my blog. Have a great weekend.
nice comment from “wired”.
glad you like your new lens!
I think the pictures look great! I gotta get me one of those!
well, you did great on those photos. maybe you’ll just have to skim the manual. i did just read the manual for my new camera last month, kind of a dry read, but worth it. good luck.
how wonderfully crisp. it’s not a bad thing to need your man! hopefully, there are lots of things he needs just from you too. that’s what makes it work so well.
Those are fantastic! Who needs a manual, I just get in there and push buttons, move the sliders, and cross my fingers. And I have to admit i need a man too, who likes to take the trash out anyway?
Keep those photos coming…love ’em!
Have a fabulous weekend!
i can’t wait, too, because these are fun!
Great job for the first time. I have an old (2years old…old in camera years)Casio point and shoot digital camera. I HATE it. I just may have to ask for a far better camera for my birthday. Hope I can wait until August!!
Anyhoo..love the pics!
Okay. I want this EXACT camera and EXACT lenses. Is it the Rebel XT? I need to email you. As sick as it makes me I’ve realized I must invest in a good camera.
Oh…and good luck with the instruction reading commitment. My guess is it will bore you to absolute death and you’ll end up learning by trial and error:)
yes, tell us which camera you are using. i might be in the market for one.
I have a new Canon Rebel xsi with a 55-250mm Canon zoom lens and a Canon 100mm f/2.8 MACRO lens. I also got a flash attachment to allow me to manipulate the light a little.
wow !! i think i need a macro lens !
these look so great !
These photos are gems! Congrats on the new camera. I have been saying I want to upgrade too – maybe someday 🙂
I am SO with you about putting furniture together(that’s what hubbys are for) & am SO impatient with reading instructions-I want someone to show me & bypass the reading!LOL! I’m off to read more of your pretty blog. your photos came out gorgeous! 🙂 chris
For foolin around you did Wonderful. The Shots are Great. Sometimes it’s better not to read the manuals too closely and just go for it. Jamie
Your photos are gorgeous! I am getting a new XSi at the end of the month and I am soo excited. I have been debating whether or not to get a macro right away or learn how to use the new camera first;) Those pictures are making me want to get it now!
Thanks for visiting my blog. Your pictures are beautiful! Good luck on the directions!
Wow…amazing pictures! Thank you for stopping by at my blog:)
Your blog is AMAZING! Love your style!!!
Manuel…shmanuel…your pictures look fabulous. I’m one of those figure it out as you go kinda girls…usually works for me :o)
Love your pictures! I am still the one who ens up reading the manual.
When I saw your blog name I had to smile. My DH’s mother who is soon to be 92, when asked how much she loves you, always says a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck. 🙂
