I got a new toy!!!!

I actually got it a week ago, but I just haven't really had time to play with it as much as I have wanted to. After taking Karen's class this weekend, I can't put it down!!! Here is what I got.....

15.1 MP of pur bliss!!! Lee told me to wait until after the first of the year and I agreed. I had to go to Best Buy last Tuesday to pick up the Twilight soundtrack and though I would just do a quick look at the cameras and it was love at first sight seriously. When I walked over there, it caught my eye and I think, I am not sure, but I think I started to hear angels sing. My heart was fluttering and my knees got weak. It was awesome!! I left empty-handed (and broken-hearted) because I agreed to wait, but it really did get the best of me. I ended up going back later that night to take it home with me.
Here are a few practice shots that I have done taking what Karen Russell taught me in her class. I think I over did the vignette on the picture of Deuce, but still I think it gives it a cool effect. That picture looks like it is in black and white, but it is really a color picture, just a grey dog against a white background.

I'm jealous! How fun for you. Love the photos and especially the vignette. I want to get off that dang green button too.

Did the camera come with the lens at Best Buy? If not why type did you buy. The pictures are great!
