Fancy cameras are my heart's delight

What a weekend! Relaxation, times with friends, reading, fireworks, the list could go on and on. And although I got sick for just long enough to miss a barbeque hosted by someone fabulous, overall the weekend was fantastic.
This is a relaxed Becky
However, the highlight throughout would have to be that my wonderful in-laws let us borrow their camera for a few weeks (since we're still having an issue with ours...grrr) and it is awesome. A canon rebel EOS to be exact with a great lens and yes I drool over love it. Meg and her boyfriend were willing subjects for picture taking as we wandered around outside and went to our former elementary school playground.
A little shade, and what I can only describe as watermelon lipstick - they both scream "summer" to me!
One of the few times neither of us have toenail polish on.
I love this one - and ohhh how these pictures just increase my desire for a fancy camera!

Expect a lot more pictures of random-ness in the next few weeks. Or as I like to see it, more pictures of the everyday. And expect lots of great ones after this weekend - I get to meet Mandy and Nora and good times will be had by all.

What about you dear readers? Are you as obsessed with awesome cameras as I am? Do you have one? (If so tell me about it and I'll live vicariously through you). What are you looking forward to this week?

I don't own a camera and hate having my picture taken.

I know it's because I have slight facial paralysis from Bell's Palsey and can't smile. Do you know how much a smile brightens up a picture.

I also have a father obsessed with picture taking and sharing pictures and it's turned me off. However, I do love looking at great pics from other people that I know haven't tortured me to stand here, there or over there.

I do not have a nice camera! I have a basic digital one that I got back in the fall of 2004. It's still kicking 6 years later. It does the job, but I would love to have something a little bit more professional. But, I don't want it enough to spend the money on it just yet. I kind of like that I can throw my camera in my purse and not worry about it - which I couldn't do if I had a nice camera!

I dont have a fancy camera, just a plain old point and shoot. I'm happy with it though most of the time. This week? I cannot wait to come to DC!

Ohhh...I LOVE our DSLR! I love our little Canon as well, but using it frustrates me now, it seems so slow. Hopefully you will be able to find a good deal on a DSLR. You can play with mine if you want when you come over at the end of the month!

I have been lusting after a fancy camera for years! One day when I don't have big expenses coming up I will HAVE to indulge :)

We finally bit the bullet and bought a Nikon D5000. Granted, I don't know the first thing about operating it in manual mode but someday I'll get there. Luckily it takes pretty fantastic shots in auto.

My hubby has a fancy camera...and it runs his life, lol.

1. I am fabulous. You are so right about that.

2. I adore fancy cameras. My fancy camera died awhile ago, and I haven't been able to invest in a new one, and it KILLS me. Daily, the sadness over the lack of super-awesome-camera permeates and makes me want to weep. I NEED the right camera.

Great pictures! DSLR camera's are the best aren't they!?

I LOVE that lipstick picture. So fun!

It's funny you posted this because I got this strange, weird tugging on my heart for a DSLR camera today! I need a new one and was going for a plain, old point & shoot because I'm not into photography and don't really need an expensive camera. But you can't deny how much more vibrant they make photographs!

I have always wanted a fancy camera! Also, I want that lip color! Gorgeous!

Darcie said...

I'm really late to the posting here, but I just got a Nikon D-90 DSLR and it is fantastic! I also have an old Ricoh manual film camera and I love the new digital one so much, I'm not sure what I'm going to do with the old one!
