For my upcoming birthday (30 something) I was super lucky to get a camera.   Got it a little early as I can never wait ha ha.  

I love the start of something new.  So exciting and so much to learn.   Keeps me interested and surprised with each new part.

Different from when I grew up I would have had to go to the library and taken out a book to learn anything like this.  Then hoped I understood it.   Now there is  YouTube, yay, and so many online classes and tutorial, you can learn so much.

While waiting for my new toy to be delivered I got online to learn some very basic basic things and as soon as it arrived we were off, well sort of lol

We went to the beach, had an awesome family day and here are some of my first shots.
