New camera - my dh rocks.......................

So yesterday, DH gave me an early Christmas present. A Canon Rebel T2i. OMG! *swooning*
It is awesome. So we went to see the sand sculptors on the beach. And I played with the settings. And played. And really played. The fun was neverending.

The sand sculptures were amazing.
The first one is the grinch that stole Thanksgiving. It was a hoot. The detail is phenomenal. Truly.

This lady was huge, and her eyes, very eerie.

These are famous sculptures from all over the world.

I took about 200 pix. Low for me, but I turned on RAW (never did that before) and jpeg. Takes up a lot of space.

I went semi-manual. Gasp,faint,thud. I KNOW! Had mixed results which is okay = because it was all about the playing. And I played.

One problem I had was when I flipped it off and on. My fingernail hit the wheel and moved it from AV to M. Good thing I looked at LCD. Because whoa!!! Time to regroup. lol!!!!

This gent is detailing an outhouse. I hate outhouses. Really. eeeuuuu!!! However, this is soooooo cool. Ther eis a dragon hugging the castle. Again, the detail is awesome.

Take note HOW FAR the outhouse is from the castle. You'll be doing a lot of stepping down the staircase, unless you decide to just roll down the side, with hopefully enough momentum to fling yourself up the otherside. Just saying..........


  1. Have fun with your new toy/camera!!! What a great gift!
