Yes, all of you who were wondering, or maybe don't even care, I don't know. :) I am still alive.
It's a little less than 2 weeks until our Greece trip, and I'm super excited. I bought a new camera for the occasion. Well, technically I used some of the points I've earned writing travel journals, but it's a new camera just the same. It's a Canon S5, it's got 12x zoom and 8mp, with a 3-inch (I think) display screen. I never thought I'd be anything but a Nikon girl, but so far, I'm really impressed with this camera. The zoom is fantastic (Nikon didn't have a point-and-shoot with that kind of zoom) and the shots are really clear. The camera has anti-shake, so it doesn't need a tripod as often.
Here are some pics taken this weekend with the new camera. "The guy" and I went downtown to the Richmond Capitol grounds to practice taking pics for the trip. I have to train him up. Ha.
