Miracles Do Exist

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:-)

    You might not need to read the manual! The pictures are great πŸ™‚ 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.

    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!

    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!
    Happy Weekend!

    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:)

    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.

    These photos are gems! Congrats on the new camera. I have been saying I want to upgrade too – maybe someday πŸ™‚

    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!

    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. πŸ™‚
