Canon Camera Candids

On Monday (June 28th) I decided that I really need a camera before I go to New Hampshire this summer.
So...  I looked and found one I wanted at Walmart.  Tuesday we cleaned the house and waited for the boys to get home.  Then us three girls, Walker, and Mom went shopping.  I got my camera from Walmart in Portland.  Online you got the camera and a 2 MB memory card.  We got there, got the camera, and then the lady said we would need a card for it.  Apparently in the store a card doesn't come with it although the camera is still the same price.  So we finally decided we'd just buy the card and then we realized since our four big kids' camera doesn't work, I could just use the memory card from it.  I bought the camera.  It is a Canon A3000 IS. 

All these pictures were taken just on the auto setting.

My very first picture:)

This picture was taken into a pitchblack room..

This was right out the door when it was pitch black outside.

Right past the clothes.  Not too great, but pretty good considering it was pitch black.  Might be able to get something better with night scene or trying something different.

Just trying out the camera... :)  Still using the auto setting.

One of my favoritest presents:)  My basketball shorts I got from Stacia.

My watch that I got for my birthday.. got it from Walmart the same time I got my camera.

The beautiful day it is out there today.  Now there aren't even hardly any clouds - a bright blue sky.

Clothes hanging on our makeshift clothes line.

Hunter - the easiest person to take some pictures of while he was running around outside.
Sky through the basketball hoop.

Rope from the baby swing.

Focusing on the baby toys.  Still using auto . . . if you can't tell, I'm really impressed with all it can do without me doing anything :)

Focusing on the background through the baby swing on the porch.

So now I've got my camera to bring to New Hampshire and take pictures of my new cousin . . . and a few other things as well :)  49 days till I'm on my way!!!!!  I can't wait to see Uncle Tim, Auntie Leona, and all my cousins! and get to meet my 2nd cousins Anikka and Ariel Seppala!

Have a wonderful day!
Love, Rachel
