New technology…

I gave in and ordered a new camera the other day.  A new to me, used camera.  Ordered because this particular camera is especially good at taking low light photos, and I know this because people much more talented than I am have been raving about it.  If I read one thing, however, it’s that you can’t expect to buy the most expensive camera and think it’s going to make you a better photographer.  But maybe a cheap camera can help.  If only I had read the manual last night because I couldn’t set the camera up in time to take full advantage of it’s functions this morning.  But it is tiny, looking a bit funny sitting atop the tripod, and I’m happy with the photos I got.  I so hope it doesn’t rain tonight so I can go back out and try again.
