My new toy...

Remember when I posted here about how I wanted a digital SLR camera?  

Well, apparently I need to be careful about what I say here, because my sweet Mimi bought me one for my graduation present!!

So I am now the proud owner of an Olympus E-420.

I've been playing around with it for a few days, and there is DEFINITELY a lot for me to learn.  Aperture, shutter speed, ISO, and exposure are going to have to become part of my vocabulary.  I've been checking out The Pioneer Woman's online tutorials, and my user's manual is already looking worse for the wear.  

But it has been fun learning so many new things.  I'm sure I'll never become any sort of professional, but maybe I'll at least learn to take pretty pictures. :)

Here are a few pictures I've taken with the new camera!
