Here we are trying out her granddaughters' new skates, in the house. It's a good thing we didn't break a hip. Good times.
I must have been a good girl because Santa gifted me a new camera. He must know me well because he got me a nice point and shoot. I've been debating on getting a DSLR, but I probably wouldn't carry it around much, and I'm so used to wearing my little Canon on my hip. Santa, I mean Mark, says I look like a photography gun fighter. Here I shot a calf. Click, Click. This camera can really zoom as I was standing very far away.
I like this camera. Here I shot our little dog Shadow.
Carnivorous cows were chasing us down this morning. Gotta shoot them.
Of course, they aren't really carnivorous cows, but we had one young visitor ask us if they were when they surrounded our vehicle, and the alliteration and imagery just stuck. Now they are lovingly known as carnivorous cows when they swarm and swarm they did today.
I'm really loving my new camera. As you can tell. It is a Canon Power Shot SX700HS. I really look forward to reading the camera's manual and learning all the things it can do. I'm so excited and grateful to have it. My old Canon Elph just wasn't taking good shots anymore. Poor dear will have to be retired. But not this fella. He still looks in pretty good shape to me.
I secretly shot these photos of Mark. I wonder how long before he asks me to remove them. Ha-ha. Here's another.
The power of zoom, zoom, zoom. He was actually watching Eric load a muzzle loader pistol. I'm really looking forward to capturing moments in 2015. Thank you Santa Mark.
We hope your Christmas was merry and bright and filled with love, beauty and peace. God bless you and may you bless Him too.
