Buying My First Camera

If you don't follow me on Instagram, then you basically live under a rock...Kidding! But if you're one of the few, proud, 220 that do, then you probably saw that I got a new camera last week! I am now the proud owner of the Canon PowerShot SX710 HS.

To be completely honest, I know absolutely nothing about cameras. All of the photos you currently see in my albums were taken with my outdated iPhone 5s. But hey, I figured what better time to upgrade now that I have my own travel blog! Pus winning a $200 Nebraska Furniture Mart gift card at my work party didn't hurt the cause.

I couldn't be more excited to take my new camera along to Paris with me next week. Hopefully by then I've skimmed the owners manual enough to know how to work the thing. In the mean time here are some random photos I took around my house for practice!
