Say Hello To My Leetle Friend

Bang, bang, shoot! Shoot as in camera!

Hello, Dear Ones! I'm so excited to tell you I have a new little friend! Mr. Precious bought me a new camera that will be forever attached to my dainty fingers! Isn't she pretty? She's a Canon Rebel T3i. My friend Brenda at Cozy Little House helped me decide! I wanted easy and pretty and she said these little Rebels were the way to go!
Now I have a little pink point and shoot ~ an Olympus FE-340 and she's so cute and has worked so hard for me. Dear Ones, you may not realize, but I try so hard to take good snaps. I work and struggle with lighting (my house is rather dark inside) and I do use Photoscape to help a bit. But my little Olympus just couldn't do any more than she was doing. I'll keep her and let Mr. Precious use her if he can handle the pink! ;)

So I've had my new Rebel, that I've named Reba, less than 24 hours and I've been snapping my tiny heart out! I'm having a ball and loving the results and just wanted to show you some of my new snaps with Reba!

Went out into the back yard and snapped some plants. I hope you'll enjoy these...







Now it's been so hard for me to snap glass. Now look at these...







Good morning sunshine...I'm loving this!



I think I'll even be playing my little Note Songs for you clearer and sharper! :)





And even my favorite brown eyed girl, Chloe Dawn sat still long enough for a snap!!
I'm so happy with the results I'm getting from this marvelous little camera. I have some snap heroes out there ~ I've mentioned Brenda from Cozy Little House, Pat from Back Porch Musings and Anne from Fiona and Twig. There are many more of you who can snap a blue streak and I've admired you all for some time. Now maybe I can snap a little better too and someone will like my tiny snaps!
Did I tell you I was excited!!! :)

Be a bunch of snapping sweeties,
Shelia ;)


I'll leave you with a little Note Song~


Bang-Bang
Bang bang you shot me down
Bang bang I hit the ground
Bang bang that awful sound
Bang bang my baby shot me down

I was five and you were six
We rode on horses made of sticks I wore black you wore white
You would always win the fight

Bang bang you shot me down
Bang bang I hit the ground
Bang bang that awful sound
Bang bang my baby shot me down

Seasons came and changed the time I grew up I called you mine
You would always laugh and say
Remember when we used to play

Bang bang you shot me down
Bang bang I hit the ground
Bang bang that awful sound
Bang bang my baby shot me down

Music played and people sang
Just for me the church bells rang
After echoes from a gun
We both vowed that we'd be one

Now you're gone I don't know why
Sometimes I cry
You didn't say goodbye
You didn't take the time to lie

Bang bang you shot me down
Bang bang I hit the ground
Bang bang that awful sound
Bang bang my baby shot me down

  18. I have a Canon Rebel EOS and just love it also, sweetpea. I think they are the best cameras for the money. It's funny but just this morning I was thinking of the best way to photograph glass and then I come here and read your blog. Okay, did you use a flash with it or not? You're right; the photos are beautiful!!!
    xoxo,

  22. I'm so excited for you, Shelia! I can't get over the shot of the wood on your piano! WOW! And the glass shots, and of course, Chloe Dawn who is ever so beautiful, old camera or new.

    I might have to get one of these at some point. I would love for my pictures to take on more life. Particularly of the godchildren.

    Love you...

  32. Great camera and great subjects! Your dog is cute. By the way, one of my favorite movies is "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane." So many times in life I can relate things to that movie. A classic.
    Give your little doggie a big hug for me!
