Phew! What a week! I hardly had time to sit and catch my breath, let alone blog! I spent all my time at work, taking care of a sick rat and studying project management... Not the best combination I can tell you…
But I’m here now, and so is the weekend :)
Something I’ve been spending a lot of time on lately is photography. Me and my Sony Cybershot (7.2 megapixel) have been busy for years, taking pictures of friends, family, landscapes and overall weird stuff we’ve encountered. Lately we’ve been pretty active on Flickr as well, submitting our favourite shots to groups and collecting beautiful work of others in our favourites-section.
But my good old Cybershot was getting a bit sloppy, making all my movies blue and having a lot of trouble with lighting. (Basically I could only make pictures between 11am and 3pm, otherwise there wouldn’t be enough light for a descent photograph...)
So I decided it was time for a gift. From me, to me. I decided it was time for…
... a Canon EOS 500D!!!
This picture was taken by my Sony Cybershot, at poor light @ 5pm this afternoon.
… is what my new BFF Canon managed to produce about 30 seconds later.
Not bad eh? I haven’t figured out all the functions, so I used the standard settings. But already I love the colours and softness of the image.
I just can't wait to start photographing!!! More pictures are surely to come, but for now I'll leave you with a little rat :)
I don't think she gets all the excitement. But she's cute anyway! :)
