(Hopefully that is the last point-and-shoot picture I ever post on here.)
I've actually had it for a few days now, but unfortunately, Santa didn't realize that the "kit" (body, lens, and basic accessories) didn't include a memory card. I got out of work a little early today, and we took advantage by running out to BestBuy.
I obviously came home and immediately started taking pictures of everything in my house. While I was in the living room, furiously snapping away at my Christmas tree and trying hard to remember everything I learned in that one photography class I took in the summer of 2003, PhillyGuy got started on dinner.
So naturally, I ran into the kitchen and started snapping away in there. And took over the preparation, since I'm a control freak about my veggies.
Brussels sprouts and onions, chopped up all pretty in the pan:
I love how bright green the sprouts get after just a minute or so of cooking.
Everything got a bath in a nice bottle of Founder's stout...
...and braised for about twenty minutes or so.
Meanwhile, PhillyGuy seasoned the pork and got to grilling.
While that went on, I started taking pictures of the dogs. Sophie was like...WHY. WHY, MOM, WHY.
And I goofed around more with the Christmas decorations.
And a bottle of wine.
DINNER LOOKS SO MUCH PRETTIER NOW!
...and sorry for the insanely photo-heavy post. Right now, I'm shooting on full auto mode (manual focus though) while I get back into the swing of things. I can't wait to take four bajillion pictures of everything while I figure things out.
And don't worry - Santa PhillyGirl took perfectly good care of PhillyGuy, too.
What's on your Christmas list this year?
