Cupid shot my heart with a Canon

Beauty didn't have a meaning until this day... I love my new camera, it's like the total and utter embodiment of photographic brilliance. I haven't taken any photos using my darling DSLR yet, but every time I pick it up my heart races, my palms sweat, my knees shake and suddenly the world makes sense, ahaha.

Canon EOS 500D, I love thee.

Thank you for all the lovely birthday wishes in my previous two posts! I shall be replying to you each individually, but at the pace of a cyber-snail because all my college work has got me in a total tizzy!
Yes I just said 'tizzy', it's a fun word... tizz, tizzy, tizzyo! I hope it doesn't have an alternate meaning (other than the one that I just made up in my head... one sec, I'm gona google it.... ahem, "Tizzy: a state of confusion, anxiety, or excitement", so yeah, sounds about right.

Anywhoo I'm immensely pleased with my Canon camera (if you couldn't already tell ;) now I just can't wait to use it - but there's one thing that stands in my way... photography coursework, bleurgh, I'm overwhelmed with the irony.

TTFN you beautiful people!

  10. Ahh, happy belated birthday!

    Can't wait to see the photos you take on this baby :)

  11. Oh I've been considering getting one! I've been working with a 1000D for about a year now but I'm thinking of getting a camera that's a bit better than that. But still I'm not prepared to put down 2000€ for a 5D or something. So now 500D has been on my mind a lot. I'm gonna start saving some money!

    Glad you're happy with it anyway! I'm excited to see some shots you took with this!

  12. I know just how you feel! I got my Canon a few months ago and it was love at first sight. I know you will be very happy with yours.

    And happy b'day miss :)
