i’ve been keeping a secret

Yes, ’tis true.

About a month ago, my aunt (who is a photographer), gave me her old camera because she had decided to update her equipment.

That means I got a lovely Canon DSLR.

So why haven’t I told you about this yet?

Good question!

Because I don’t have a computer with regular USB ports, I had to order a special USB adapter cord and wait for it to come in the mail…which it did today!

I’m so excited to be showing you some of the pictures I’ve been taking over the past few weeks! For now, while I’m still learning how everything works, and getting used to manually adjusting settings and such, my pictures are hit and miss. One turns out good, but then the next five will be like what…? How did THAT happen???

Anyway, without further ado, here are some of my experiments.

p.s. if my aunt is reading this, i want to thank her again from the bottom of my heart for remembering me when she upgraded her equipment. 

spring day

Sunshine fades,
Then comes again.
Birds chirp a serenade,
Glad there is no rain.

I feel a wistfulness,
Rising in my soul.
Something akin to sadness,
Makes my heart feel full.

Yes, I love the sun,
Yes, I love the birds.
But something is undone,
Not described with words.

for a year this poem has sat, awaiting the day when i would finally publish it
