New toy!

Next week, it's our 20th wedding anniversary. How the hell did that happen?? Anyway, as a gift, Gordon got me a new Nikon D7100 DSLR to replace my aged D70. I got a new wide-angle lens too. I couldn't be happier!

I tried it out on Emily last night...

It came with a 355-page manual. Let's see if I can get through that!

Miss Princess was enjoying her beauty snooze on the couch as we watched Breaking Bad on DVD.

She rules the house now, in case you didn't know!

Happy little kitty!

Pensive moment. Or maybe she's plotting something!

And a little grooming before returning to her nap!

But we can't forget the old guy, Julius. Emily is always hissing and yowling at him. He just ignores her!

And here's MY old guy...

...well, actually he's four years younger than me! :) Thank you for my beautiful gift, Gordon!

    Happy anniversary to you both. And I look forward to more and more of your marvelous photos. You've almost (almost) turned me into a cat lover.

  2. Happy anniversary!

  3. "Happy Anniversary and many more, you two". Enjoy your weekend celebrating. That first pic of Emily is amazing. What a model she makes. I'm still raving about your honey. I am such an oinker...half way through the first bottle. That stuff goes good on everything.

  4. Happy anniversary for next week!!
    Emily is a such a beauty...all grown up...and give Julius a big smoochy kiss from me!

  5. Wow. If those first shots are anything to go by, can't wait to see what you produce when you get the hang of it!
    Happy Anniversary to you both. Jx

  6. Cute photos of the cats and human :) Congrats on 20 years of wedded bliss and your new camera!

  7. You have done your new camera justice with those fun photos!

  8. Emily has got to be the most gorgeous little pussy-cat that ever lived. Indeed the Noble Don QuiScottie does now bestow that official title on her, for use through all QuiScottieland and in the provinces and colonies beyond. Arise Lady Emily M.G.L.PC.T.E.L.

  9. And 20 years? The Don and his Dulcinea reach 36 years in August. You and your man are still in the Honeymoon Stage (akthough so are the Don and his Dulcinea... on a good day)

  10. I think you might be spoiled! :)

  11. Well, happy anniversary. Time goes by when you're having fun! The next twenty will go by faster!

  12. Of course Miss Emily had to be the first one to be photographed with the new camera :)
    Happy anniversary!

  13. Happy Anniversary!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Have a nice weekend!

  14. Congratulations to you both on your anniversary.

    What a lucky girl you are to have such a fun present :-)

  15. Beautiful shots! You've certainly mastered the new camera.

    Happy Anniversary week!
