Tulip Takes Pictures

May 26, 2009

photos by Tulip
A few months ago, I mentioned that I am hardly EVER in photos. This is due to the fact that I am usually the only one in my family with a camera in hand. Recently though, Tulip has been more interested in trying photography. She took this picture of me using MY Canon 30D with a 50mm1:1.8 lens.
And with her Canon Powershot point and shoot …she captured this beauty.

Not bad for a 9 year old!
