SUMMER CRICKET


<
If it's a Saturday morning and it's summer it means no sleep in the Thorn home. We're up early to take Elliot to cricket.

This morning it was a bit easier than usual to get up as I had a new toy to take. My Canon EOS400D - yep, the Canon Rebel.An impulse purchase when we saw it on sale last weekend. But a long dreamed about purchase - I think I've been wanting one for a couple of years. 2 lenses. An 18-55 (used for the wide-angle shot) and a 75-300 zoom.

So I took it out to cricket for a test drive - but I have yet to read the manual.


Bedtime reading tonight.

Ooh, enjoy your new camera!
I've had the 300D or a few years now and just love it. I'm working on upgrading to the 450D which comes out soon :)

oooo! Nice new toy! Enjoy it :)

Thanks heaps for those book recommendations... I shall be busy, but I am fast reader so that is good.

Something very relaxing about lying on the grass in the summer sun listening to the clack of the cricket bat.
