Anyway, he bought us a present - a Canon EOS Rebel T3i!! I get to use it, provided he takes it to Wales for a month.
I couldn't handle it, I started taking pictures tonight with my light box (now granted, I need to learn how to use it, but I did watch the DVD that came with it):
The top picture is copper with ink, the bottom two are sterling silver. I still need to work out the settings for this camera, which is SO much more sophisticated than my sweet Canon 1530. Not complaining in the least! :)
Happy dreams, xoxo Juliette
