Running away with my new camera

I bought a new camera this week –YAY!  I’ve been having trouble with the power source on my old PowerShot for about a year now.  It’s been tough dealing with an unreliable camera and it was starting to drive me nuts.  So I order this new one!  It’s not the sexiest camera… not packed with bells and whistles, but it has what I need/want and it was in my budget.  The macro settings are pretty cool and there should be some improvement in my close up shots.  I’ve only played around a bit, but so far I really like it.

Soon I will have time to experiment and plenty of subjects to shoot.  Nik, Rand and I are headed downstate to my parents’ new place.  It will be great to run away to the countryside for a week.  And, I promise, there will be pictures!
