WOYWW 137

Better late than never, I am joining Julia and her friends over on her blog, to see what everyone has on their work-desk today. Mine started off in it's usual tidy Wednesday state. Last night I finished off a wedding card that I wanted to post today, but I had to make sure that was all cleared away for today's photo. I will do a post about it after the event on 28th of the month. Today, I had only just returned from my morning with my sewing group, when the courier was at the door with an exciting parcel for me. Yes; it was my new camera, complete with batteries and charger, a nice soft case, a mini tripod an SD card, and a lens hood. So of course I immediately unpacked it all over my tidy desk, unhelpfully 'helped' by my beautiful Arwen who claimed one of the plastic bags as her toy. This is a bridge camera, one step up from the digital point and take, but easier to manage than a full SLR. The only down side was that the only manual is on the accompanying CD so I spent the rest of the afternoon printing this out so that I can sit and go through it with the camera in my hand. It is going to be somewhat of a learning curve, but I am looking forward to finding out just what it can do. But first I am going to see what everyone else is doing, so follow me to Stamping Ground and join in the fun.

Oh how fab. And knowing there's a 'bridge' camera makes even me think I could step up a notch. I'm frustrated by CD manuals..Mr D bought a large piece of Joinery equipment recently and it had a CD manual....no computer at the workshop, so that had him countering till home time!! Have fun with your camera, look forward to seeing your new pics!
