I got a new camera!!!!!

It was driving me crazy not having my camera. So I decided to go ahead and get a new one; I have been thinking about it for a while now. I got a Canon PowerShot SX10 IS; I love it, even though I don't know how to use it. I have been reading the manual all afternoon; what the heck is shutter speed, and what does aperture mean? I don't know yet, but I am determined to learn.

One thing it has that I do know a little about is the macro setting; hey, this camera even has a super macro setting! This is what you use when you need to get very close up to a subject; like a crochet item you want to show the stitches on, for instance.

So, look what I have done so far:

Love that Super Macro!A butterfly from the potholder set. The colors look a little washed out in these pictures. I will have to see what I am doing wrong. Posies Hotpad, also from the infamous potholder set.

A close up (macro shot!!!) of the leaves on a little Rosebud baby hat I am working on. The whole hat.

I know, these photos are not very impressive. But I am determined to learn how to take decent photos.
And, since I have a camera, you know what that means!! That's right, contest time!!! Tomorrow or Tuesday, for sure!
