He likes mine better

We went to Austin this past Saturday to meet up with an old dear friend of mine (I'll post the details up when my lazy butt downloads the photos...) and, of course, I brought the new to me camera. I passed on the older Canon S3 IS to the hubby since he'd figured out how to use it and could deal with whatever is on hand. He's never showed a preference to any particular camera and not much interest in it either. Other than complaining how he can't take pictures and that I take better ones. That's why we have very few pictures of me, I'm the one behind the other side of the lens. How many of you are with me on this one? You ever notice how's there's thousands of pictures of kids, sometimes with dads, but you'd think they were all motherless since there's never a mom in the pics...

I have yet to really sit down and figure out the new Rebel Xti but it has auto mode and I have 4 lenses and I know how to switch them on and off so I took that one with us. I'll never figure it out if I don't use it so there ya go. I don't know about everyone else but I still kinda feel odd sitting with friends and busting out with a camera and just shooting away with a bunch of big huge lenses. You can get away with the subtle pocket cameras but the big ones kinda look..intrusive? Kinda weird but that never stopped me before so I rolled with it. At some point my friend wanted pics with me so my camera was passed on to the hubby. I handed it to him and said 'It's on auto mode, it works just like the S3'. He got it and next thing you know he's holding that actuation button down and shooting like a gleeful maniac. Go figure. Apparently he likes the way it works like the old school manual ones. Novel! Hello, why in the world did he think I was in this mad obsession to get a new camera? Yeah I think he gets it now. I suspect once I figure out how and what settings I can adjust and not lose the picture completely he's going to be all over my camera. I see bad things acomin'....

At least you'll get photos of you... so it isn't all bad.

Yeah, after two years, I still feel that way when I take out my camera. And that's because people still make comments about it. And that's what I'm dreading... the comments. People should just be quiet.

By the way- books? I read what was available of Midnight Sun online. You know, Edward's POV? LOVED IT. But was seriously depressed when it ended. Even though I KNEW it was incomplete, it totally ruined my day.

I had a really hard time getting into the Sookie series. But then I started watching the show and got hooked. I'm a little more interested in at least finishing the first book before I get too far into the show, but I'm not sure if I'll read any of the other books. Haven't made up my mind yet.

Also, I started on book one of the Stephanie Plum series. Love it so far.
