Experimenting With My New Toy!

A year ago, I wouldn't have believed you if you told me that I'd be so into photography today. Then again, a year ago, I didn't have a blog. My how my life has changed, and in such a short period of time. I asked Mr. MDB to get me a new camera for Christmas. In case I haven't mentioned it in a while, my man is so wonderful. He knows how much blogging means to me and he enjoys reading my posts. So not only did he get me a new camera, he got me the best camera he could find. He even suggested I take a beginner photography class at our local community college.
At first I wasn't going to even use the camera until I learned everything about it. But Mr. Wonderful talked me into learning as I go. There are so many cool features to this thing.

I have been having so much fun snapping pictures around my home, that I thought I'd share some with you.
These were all taken in the Master Bedroom.

Some pix of the Living Room.

Why not step in the Dining Room with me?

Ooooohweeee! This is FUN! Saunter with me into the Family Room.

Step into my office.......

Hehe - can you see I tried to edit out the screen in that one?? Ha!

Back into the Living Room. I'm experimenting with the "antiquing" feature here.

Some random shots.

Oh gosh, am I getting carried away?? Probably. But thanks for being my guinea pigs! You guys are the best. And with my new toy I feel like a true blogger at last!
Thanks for visiting!

Beautiful photos, Kim!! Your home is stunning! I think the camera is doing it justice. The features you are using, the framing around the picture and editing out things....are those all features of the camera? I haven't read my manual yet and I know I should!! lol!

Have fun with your new toy!!

Great photos - You are doing good -
I am impressed! I need to either get a new camera or get educated in photography.

I got a new camera for Christmas last year and I still don't have it all figured out. Looks like you are doing great with yours! I love the way you've decorated your fireplace mantle and I want that mercury glass bowl!

Your pictures are really, really good! I loved seeing different parts of your home, too!

I hinted for a fancy camera but the hubby hasn't taken the bait yet.

Hey Kim!! Thanks for stopping by and leaving such a kind note about my dining room !! I love your new shots ... your home is gorgeous (I see you and I share a love of symmetry, too!) I found the "Believe" sign at HomeGoods last Fall (a Christmas decoration that I'm just going to leave up there) ... and, I found the mirror at a local Christmas decor shop ... got it for a steal ... yay! I look forward to following your blog this year. Take care, Becca
