When I want something big, I usually think about buying it and weigh my options for a long time and then one day, I decide I have to have it immediately, and buy it without giving it any more thought. That is kind of how it happened with my new dslr camera.

Now that I have an amateur photographer boyfriend, I am not as well-known as the photo-taking manic that I used to be. I still take plenty of pictures on my iPhone but I used to be the girl who brought her camera everywhere. I went to Sweden for two weeks in high school and used up nine disposable cameras. My parents were thrilled to pay for that when I got home. In college, my friend Nicole and I decided our sophomore year to create a facebook photo album for every weekend of the year. And we did. I was out of control with the picture taking.

So, even though I will never be the aspiring photographer that Joshua is, I started to think that I should get a high-quality camera for my bike ride and beyond. It also won't hurt to snap many more quality photos for my blog and not have to steal Josh's camera everytime I need to photograph a smoothie or my running shoes.
Here are some more of the random photos I've taken since I bought the camera Monday night. I am still taking everything on auto settings and don't know how to edit them well so hopefully there is nowhere to go but up. Either way, I think this is a huge improvement over my typical iphone pictures so I hope you enjoy!
