At Saturday’s garage sale our friend Mike McFall had a Nikon D5000 DSLR camera for sale at a very reasonable price—I thought about it and decided against buying it. When we married Michael had a Pentax 35mm and I used it some before we graduated to digital. I’ve always been a point and shoot kind of girl but have been thinking of trying a DSLR. Not wanting to spend the money until I was sure that type camera was for me I had been looking at used cameras off and on.
Last night I sent Mike a text asking if he had sold his camera—nope—so I decided it was meant for me! And my dear husband decided he was buying—earned himself a whole bunch of points!! Mike sold me the camera, an 18-55 lens and a 55-200 lens, a fantastic camera bag/backpack and a tripod for a great price—THANKS Mike--now the learning begins!
Last night the Minnesota gang came for dinner—I tried a Pioneer Woman dessert—chocolate pie—to die for!!
A homeowners association meeting consumed my morning and the cowboy has started working on the kitchen countertops—makes for interesting meal preparation—but I’m not complaining!
Tonight the Minnesota gang along with Joe and Kathy plus Tom and Sandy joined us out in the desert at Sunset Point to watch the moon rise. I took the new camera but as I said, I have lots to learn—here are my first attempts--
Life is good!
