Just like old times

Those of you who have known me for a long time might remember that I use to take pictures all the time. And when I say all the time I mean ALL the time. At every seemingly insignificant hang-out or occasion or random moment, I had my little Canon Digital Elph camera and I was snapping thousands (maybe even millions) of pictures. And I put a lot of them on my old blog.

When I got married last fall I decided to pass along my little camera to my older sister Jen and her family because they needed one and I figured I could just use Steve's. Well, I did pass my camera on to my sister but I never really fell in love with Steve's camera. And as it turned out, he would need it fairly often for work which meant I didn't constantly have a camera in my purse to take millions of pictures with. So the documenting of my life sort of stopped.

Until today. While all my friends are buying expensive fancy cameras, lately all I've wanted was my little old Canon Elph back. So last week I bought this:

It's a little bigger than a deck of cards. It might not be the fanciest camera in town but it's exactly what I wanted. Get ready to be photographed my friends!

Good for you. I love my DSLR, but sometimes it makes me feel to self conscious since to really be useful I need to lug along at least one additional lens and/or off body flash. My five year old S400 still sees action and my next camera purchase will probably be to get a newer smaller better point and shoot.

I have an earlier version of that. Does yours have the rapid fire? I LOVE that function. Ya, since I got my nikon D80 sometimes I prefer to take the elph because it's easier to whip out.
