Like every good new camera owner, I've now taken several photos already and am willing to share them with YOU! But to spare the casual viewer, I have the photos under an LJ cut.
Poor Leo was my model. I'd say "Leo!" and he'd look over, then "FLASH!" "Beepeep" and he'd shake his head and then give me that Paddington Bear stare that he's so good at. But a little later, I'd call "Leo!" and he'd look over again, only to be blinded again. I tried taking off the flash, but then he'd move too much during the shoot and be all out of focus.

I also took some photos of the den. So, if you're interested in seeing my Doctor Who novel collection (you can't really tell, but most of those books are 3 deep), my Big Finish audios (can't believe how much space they take up!), and my computer area, click back there...

My computer desk. Note the Sylvester McCoy wallpaper. And the neat-o Yellow Submarine figures.
One thing that I did while out this evening (Curves and BW3s) was go to Walmart and pick up the CR-V3 battery for the camera. Damn, $10 for one battery, but the flash time was considerably faster and they supposedly last a long time (compared to AA). I also picked up two different Phillips brand headphones (or hearphones as I've always called 'em). A pair of wrap-arounds to replace my poor Jensen pair (which I got free when eMusic.com had a special of one free headphones for every 99 cent purchase) and a pair of earbuds which are proving to be more comfy than the earbuds that came with my Rio MP3 player. Which is what I'm listening to right now.
