and now….for my BIG news!

as some of you knowwww, my camera (beloved and magical) had been having some….issues.  well, first of all, i got estimates from 2 reputable camera repair shops (one of which had camera for 3 days and couldn’t get it to replicate the problem) and both of them said it was probably the shutter dieing (cue comical wuhn wuh wuhnnn noise) then gave me the scary price.  (cue villain theme) but….dear eyegillian, sensible and savvy, suggested updating the firmware.  (pregnant pause) now, it is my job to take as many pictures as possible, but….it seems to have done the trick! what the hell!!??

thanks eyegillian.

in the meantime, my friends d. and m. were very upset for me that i was without camera, and more than likely unable to pay for a repair.    and even if it wasn’t a bad fix,….a girl always needs a back up, right?

so, they bought me this overly generous gift:  a brand new canon eos rebel xsi. (cue angels singing music)

here is my camera family, missing is the sd750 digital elph.  after all, someone had to take the picture.


canon eos rebel xsi and canon 20d

so far i love love LOVE this new camera.

obviously i have gorgeous subjects to work with!!!

how fortunate am i to have friends so generous and so supportive of my dog photography, that they would ram this rebel xsi in my hands and say, “here, we think you should have this.”?

immeasurably fortunate.  psychotically grateful.  spasmodically looking for photo opportunities!

anyway, if you haven’t visited my dog photography blog, dogdailyphoto, please do.  i think it would make my friends happy to see dog faces being appreciated, or something like that!

i told you it was big news!!!!

(cue applause!)

Such great news all round. I’ll keep my fingers crossed that the 20D is now fine and what a lovely world you live in to have folks do something so very kind. Clearly you are well loved!
