First Photos with my New Camera

First Photos with my New Camera


Friday while taking the cliff photos, my dear old camera freaked out and died. I had been having trouble with that camera intermittently for about six months, and am grateful it still worked last weekend for my family gathering in Michigan. So on Saturday, after picking up our daughter from the PSAT, we bought a new camera for me. I had done my research, and fortunately Costco had the camera I wanted at a better price.

We had shopped on Labor Day weekend for a new refrigerator, since ours, while still working, is over 20 years old and looks disreputable, rusting especially around the freezer area. But hunt though we did, we did not find a new refrigerator that we either liked or would fit into our retro kitchen. So we are keeping our old one. The sobering thing is this new camera was the price of that low end frig we didn’t buy…

Above, you can see both my old camera, a 2006 Canon DSLR EOS 20D, with my new camera, a 2013 Canon DSLR EOS 70D. I got double the number of megapixels, double the on-camera screen size, and 800x the iso range. And this one has the ability to take videos too. It also has WiFi capacity. There are all sorts of features to blow the mind, and I’ll be on a steep learning curve figuring it all out.

 Meanwhile, here are the first photos I took with it today…

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
