Well, I definitely had a moment this week!
The moment my new camera arrived only 18 hours after I ordered it online.
I wish I had had the presence of mind to take pictures of the UPS man handing me the lovely brown package all wrapped in B and H tape.
That was a wonderful moment.
The moment became a full blown, jumping up and down, squealing with excitement kind of moment as I opened the box and pulled out the goodies inside.
I slowly opened the boxes and reverently placed them on the recently cleaned counter.
No crumbs allowed!
Then there was the moment of fear and uncertainty.
Was I ready to give up my little camera?
Will I know how to work the new one?
What if I drop it?
Oh, please, don't let me drop it.
I slowly opened each component.
Placed the memory card and battery in the camera.
Turned it on.
And, OH!... like Frankenstein's monster, it came to life!
I pointed the lens at the nearest object.
Then the nearest kid.
Oh, yeah... this is going to be good.
So I wandered around my house and took 217 pictures of random objects.
(I'm not kidding... that's the actual number!)
If it didn't move... and maybe even if it did, it was fair game.
I took it in the car to pick Quincy up from school.
and... like a good and very trusting mother....
I let her take a few pictures.
After prying the camera from her hands,
I took about three hundred more shots outside
(an approximation, but pretty darn close to the truth)
and a few more around the house
Where I captured a few more moments...
