New Camera!

What’s this?! A real non-phone photo? 

Bento: Fish nuggets, carrots, oranges, apples, and a few lime slices.

Alex gave me a wonderful Christmas present a little early; it’s a camera!  Not just a camera, the camera of my dreams!  Not quite an SLR but the perfect blend of size and features and it’s just plain awesome.  I love it.  I’m so over the moon about it!  So I can finally go back to my favorite hobby of making bento, taking pictures, and blogging about it!  I have been under the weather (AGAIN!) for the two days since I received my camera but I dragged myself out of bed to make this bento and take pictures on the deck while my patient Ara played in the yard.  I probably took 100 photos, of which only a hand full are in focus and useable.  I have a lot to learn, but I look forward to it!

Here are a few more shots from today:

I love lime, almost anything tastes better with a squeeze of zesty lime!

A tiny flower that blooms on this purple ground cover that is growing around our yard.  It’s pretty but very small.  I love that new camera managed to capture the tiny hairs at the flower center.  Macro shots are my dream and I  can get within 1/4 of an inch of my subject.. the trick is that I have to hold still.  That’s a trick indeed.  I might need to dig out the tripod.

My main photo subject!  I took this inside with the windows spilling sunlight into the room. 

If you’re curious, it’s the Canon Powershot SX130 IS!
