Get Used to This...

I told my family they needed to get used to seeing this! For the first time ever, I'm taking pictures and thoroughly enjoying it! I think it must be because I know a lot more about what I'm doing now? Makes sense, don't you think? I've decided that in order to promote consistent practice, most blog posts I write from now on should include a photo I've taken.

Here are a few I took in my yard this weekend! My friend Erin actually owned the lens I mentioned in this post last week. She's letting me use it before I decide whether or not to buy (thanks, E!). So far, I'm loving the results...

I had a wonderful time with my friends from South Carolina over the weekend! We had a lot of catching up to do, so a great deal of the visit was spent just talking. I am always refreshed by their encouragement and wisdom. We did find time to watch Pacific Rim and do some shopping, though. :)

Have a happy Monday...



  1. Gorgeous photos!! I just purchased my first "big girl" camera too so im bound and determined to figure it out!

    1. Thanks, Alisha! :) Haha! I was able to sign up for a class on A Beautiful called Mastering Your DSLR which was excellent and so easy to understand. The class is almost over now, but they'll probably offer it again! I'll let you know if I hear anything about it!

  2. I could get used to this! These are beautiful photos! What kind of canon are you using? Also, time spent with good friends IS so refreshing.

  3. Thanks, Jenny!!! It's actually a fairly old model, a Rebel XT. The lens is a 50mm 1.8. It was very refreshing! I just wish they lived closer! :)

  4. Gorgeous pictures Anna! Welcome to the club of being bitten by the bug!!!


Let's start a conversation!
