Contest Loot

Ya’ll know the camera I won on SpunkyHomeSchool 

compliments of the Academic Superstore ?


Well, it came yesterday and I am just tickled.  It is a Canon Powershot A620 with 7.1 megapixels and a 4x zoom. It also came with a mongo-huge messenger bag that will be a perfect thing to stuff full next time we go camping.

I feel so spoiled to get such a gift.  Here are a few shots I got with the new camera. I love being able to get close when I take pictures and this camera looks like it will do a good job at that.

Oh, and speaking of contests, I am hosting one right here beginning this weekend. There will be a prize and everything!!  Check back on Saturday morning for more details.

  1. Mary — how exciting! I had a Powershot, which I reluctantly gave to my parents when I got my Rebel. I loved that camera — it was so nice that it was small enough to go anywhere, and took great photos, too. Have fun! Your pix look fantastic!

  2. Wow! Lucky you! And what a great eye you have 🙂

  3. A quality camera (especially a Won one) is fine and dandy, but the person holding it oughta have a good eye and steady hands.

    YOU obviously qualify!
    I love the chair and pumpkin and the way the shadows fall.

    Your 4 year old is adorable. Absolutely.

  4. Awesome!! Congrats on the win! I am so into photography and have yet to get a digital (still stuck in the film age)…Looks like I may have to check Academic Superstore out – I’m jealous of the great pictures you got with your new toy!

  5. Great pictures. How fun for you that you got that sweet little prize! I would love a digital camera – as it is right now I have to borrow my daughter’s.

  6. Great photos! 😉

  7. Is it just me, or is it hard to read the words? I’m a little tired today, so it could be me…

  8. Beautiful pictures!

  9. Beautiful pictures. Hope you enjoy the camera!
