Today I got up early to go shopping with Chrissie…my daughter. Actually…she accompanied me! I went out looking for a new camera…a digital SLR. I went out looking to get a body for my old Nikon camera lens….but rather quickly decided that it wasn’t worth trying to get a body….when the body I wanted wouldn’t work with the auto focus feature. The newer lenses are made to match and work with the newer bodies…so I thought it best to just get the lens(s) with the new body. And my daughter is a Canon fan…and uses it in her photography business. So went to two different shops in town….if you want a camera from a good shop….there are two places to go in Fresno. Boots Camera….and Horn Photo. Horn photo is actually where I wanted to purchase because when I was a young girl, my father used to shop at Horn photo and knew the original owners. I bought the Canon Rebel T2i and two lenses. An 18-55 mm lens for everyday shooting…and a 55-250 mm for zooming. Now I need to sit down and read the manual….these new digital cameras are a lot more complicated than my old 35 mm camera.
I also did some baking today….I did a dry run on some mini donuts that I want to make for Preston’s birthday party….and some candy coated pretzel rods. They both turned out pretty cute. I think these recipes will work just fine. Oh….I got the recipe for the mini donuts here: http://www.sprinklebakes.com/2010/08/vanilla-bean-baby-doughnuts.html And I used the frosting glaze for rolling the pretzel rods in….and sprinkling with the colored candies.
