New Toy!

I bought myself a new toy for my birthday last week....

It's a Sony a57 DSLR camera.  I have been wanting one for a long time, and finally took the plunge this weekend.  I am in love!

This weekend, I spent plenty of time trying it out, on Saturday we went shooting at our local gun club, and on Sunday we went offroading on a trail called Hackett Gulch.  I also spent quite a bit of time photographing my two favorite models, Diesel and Kitten.  Here are a few of my favorite shots.

I wonder how much grief I will get from my Mom and sister Dana for not getting a Nikon. :)


  1. The problem with Sony is that it's harder to buy the generic brands of the batteries and they use a different type of memory card so you can't share. And now, you can't borrow our lenses so you'll have to buy your own.

    You're already getting the bokeh - did you do that on purpose or did the automatic setting do it?

  2. I like the one of little kitten. It's neat.

  3. Wow, that is quite a camera. I'm looking forward to seeing some more pics from it.
