New Camera!!





I got a new camera! A Canon SX100 IS . I thought that these were interestingly strange photos even though I did the odd coloring by accident because I haven't read the whole book yet. I think I overexposed these shots- if you're a photographer you could leave me some comments - but they still looked intriguing to me in my own quirky weird sort of way. I love the lines, shapes and textures. I crack myself up because even sucky pictures make me happy.

Painted a little this weekend too.
Not totally happy with this one. It says, "she dreamed of horses". I'll work on it some more.
And I'll work on my photography some more. I learned a long time ago if I waited until I knew what I was doing to start doing something, I would never get any closer to doing it well. So I just do it and know that in front of me is a beautiful painting or an exquisite photograph just waiting for me to get finished with a thousand hours of practice.
