Needless to say, Mom has been going crazy with the flashy beast. While there will be a longer post this weekend with Even More pictures, Mom has So Many Photos that she wanted to get some of them up now. And boot our letter to Santa - which served its purpose - Santa (and Granny and Grandpa) were very good to us!
Mom's photos have been of varying quality, mostly because she's still in the early stages of learning how to use her camera (luckily our Granny and Grandpa got her a book for Christmas that explains where all the various settings on the camera can be found, what the settings do, and how to use them - without this book, our Mom would be truly hopeless!). Mom is also in the early stages of learning how to take pictures from the 'artistic' point of view. But when she's taking pictures of us, there are always treats involved, so it's all good.
|"Why yes, Mom, I will stand here as long as you hand me that turkey snack when you are done. You do realize I have the roof of the house coming out of the side of my head, right?"|
|Fluffica (aka Abby) doing what she does best - sitting in the snow, ignoring Mom and the camera!|
|Fluffica still not looking at the camera. And hoarding frisbees.|
|"Hey, uh, Mom? Whatcha doing down there? Are you okay? If you are okay, can I have my treats now?"|
|Holy Hipposnooterus, Batman!|
This next picture is only of interest because it is of the back of my neck. Actually, Mom was reading her 'How to Use Your Camera' book and was trying out the manual focus option. As Mom was sitting in bed, and I was right next to her, I was her guinea pig. (Alas, no turkey treats were dispensed in the creation of this photo...)
|Biggify this one if you are really interested in seeing my collar and/or the back of my neck!|
|"Mom, why do you want to look at me on the computer when I'm Right Here, Next to You?"|
|*sigh* Couldn't you at least get the color tones right?|
