A new baby

Yes, our family is growing .... meet my new baby:

Photo taken with the old instamatic camera

And here is a shot of what I've been using all this time to take my photos:

 Taken with the new camera with the normal lens

And with the macro lens

I'm absolutely loving the macro lens. Look at some of the shots I've been taking!!





And of course some crafty related ones:





I'm loving the detail I can get with this camera. Can't wait to do loads more experimenting!!

Hope you all have a great weekend.

Andi :-)

I'm a Nikon SLR girl, brilliant. Congratulations on your growing camera family. We also have 3 Nikon CoolPix small digitals (only as i keep misplacing then finding again, but one has gone after middle daughter sat on it while it was in my handbag, the triplets are now twins). Hoy hoy, go for rain shots, they are amazing, love Posie
