Don't be fooled. Inside this thin coating of sweetness is a fiery core of total insanity.

Playing Around With a New Toy

I've got a new camera, a digital SLR. It's a Nikon D3100. So far, I've used the closeup function (the one with the picture of the flower), and the auto function, which makes it work just like my little point-and-shoot. Those are the same two functions I've always used on my point-and-shoot. Many, many (no, really, many) years ago, I took a course in photography, which helped me learn how to use my old Minolta SLR (before there were digital cameras, also before there was a child and a husband in my life). So, some day, maybe, I will learn to use more of the manual functions of this camera.

But for now, I'm going to keep using it like my point-and-shoot. Because I'm older than I was then, and my brain can only hold so much info.

I used it this morning to take more pictures of frost, and dead leaves.
