So here are a couple of snaps that I took with "My New Toy" (i.e. my combined birthday-Christmas-present which I already received for my birthday yesterday but which will last till - and hopefully MUCH LONGER THAN - Christmas), my new Canon EOS350D (Yay!) My other much liked toy! I will still use this one, too! Close-up of the flowers that my husband brought me for my birthday, too (I'm still not all happy with the whitebalance --- there's a lot of "Reading-The-Manual" lying ahead of me :roll: ) And three pics of the biscuit-house that my daughter built yesterday. All five photos taken without flash and in normal house lights, camera still set to fully automatic --- I shall learn about manual operations in the course of time! I promise! I might even start reading the manual sooner than in about 6 months from now (I took that long in finally finding my way into using the Powershot mostly manually).
