Expect to get to know me a lot better from now on, mmm kay?


After seeing Eric’s post last night on painting, I said to him:

‘That’s IT. I’m using your camera from now on!!!’

His pictures just looked… much. better. than. mine. Just look!!!!

He said, ‘Well, what if I don’t want you to have better pictures on your blog than me??’

Oh it was WAR!!!!!! :D

Naturally, I won, and he was soon giving me some pointers with his camera. I can’t believe it has taken me this long to start using it. The pictures are SO utterly, drool worthy crisp. I went ga-ga over them. And these were taken at night time- gasp- when pictures normally look like a pile of you-know-what!

Expect to get to know me at a much more personal level from now on…

I won’t be able to hide anything with this camera!


Betcha didn’t know the wood on our doors was worn down, did ya??

I love the character.


Don’t get me wrong, I still love my Canon Powershot SD800 IS. I have had it for over 3 years and it is a great little point and shoot!


I shot this picture below with my point and shoot Canon tonight:


A great little camera!

But you, my dear loyal readers, deserve only the best that we have to offer! I am ashamed at how long I have been denying you of this crisp picture quality when it was sitting right under my nose!

And if Eric wants to play hard ball, hard ball he is going to get!!!!
We’ll see who has better pictures…

We begin tomorrow.


Betcha didn’t know how messy my desk really gets, did ya?


I say we embrace our inner messy selves. You know, sometimes there are just more important things than a tidy desk!

Do you see the fierceness in my eyes?

GAME on, Eric. GAME on.



I may look sweet, but I’m full of fire.

Nicole (the other one) June 23, 2009 at 8:30 am

On June 24th…St. Jean Baptiste?


Kate B June 23, 2009 at 8:42 am

WOOT Canada Day!!! I missed the last challenge, so I am SO taking part in this one!


Mel June 23, 2009 at 9:08 am

I am excited to see the picture war unfold :) So far your pictures are looking great!

I’m guessing Canada Day!! I am glad I am catching this challenge at the beginning! Can’t wait!


Erin June 23, 2009 at 9:14 am

Canada Day!?!?

I am excited to participate but I am really new to your blog and already I am addicted to it!

Thanks for doing another BC


jessica June 23, 2009 at 9:16 am

Yay!! Just over 1 week until it starts!! Can’t wait! :D


Christina June 23, 2009 at 9:17 am

Haha my boyfriend has one of those cameras too but I’m always too lazy to take it out and use it. If the picture quality is that much better maybe I should switch over too! Can’t wait to see the comparison shots :)


brandi June 23, 2009 at 9:18 am

i can’t wait for the new boot camp! :) IT should start tomorrow since it’s my birthday :) Or maybe not! I’ll need a week to recover from all the celebrating this weekend!


april June 23, 2009 at 9:21 am

I have the same Canon camera! It’s lasted a while and I like it! However Eric’s camera does look pretty darn fancy!


Rose June 23, 2009 at 9:23 am

Ohhh, sounds exciting!


Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope June 23, 2009 at 9:34 am

My mom has a 30 year old camera that basically takes professional qualtiy photos and she always uses that thing unless she’s going on a trip. Cannons and other smaller cameras are great for portability and convenience, but they don’t take anywhere near the pictures that a professional camera does! Have fun with that thing! :)



Low June 23, 2009 at 9:35 am

So excited! I couldn’t figure out how to vote on the poll, but all the names are fantasic!

I have a Nikon D70S that is quite similar to Eric’s camera – I love it! Can’t wait for picwars!


Melissa (fitnessnyc) June 23, 2009 at 9:35 am

wow, I just order the canon 880, and I was so excited. I have an old manual camera from my photography classes in high school, but it’s not digital so I never use it.


Recipes for Creativity June 23, 2009 at 9:57 am

Thank goodness the other commenters mentioned Canada Day, because I would have no clue what to guess. Boxing day is really far away!

Good luck with the photo war!


The Running Yogini June 23, 2009 at 9:58 am

I’m guessing St. John the Baptist Day, b/c I hope it starts tomorrow. Wishful thinking…


Jenn June 23, 2009 at 10:00 am

Oh Canada!!! July 1st

You will love using the SLR. I have a Nikon D40 and it takes super pictures. I never use my point and shoot much anymore.


Jocelyn June 23, 2009 at 10:02 am

lol sounds good…I chose the goddess one ;) I wonder if I’ll be able to do Amy’s challenge (15 pound one) and yours at the same time/ That should whip my bum into shape lol

Look at all those pictures lol…I need to get a camera like his..mine produce sub par pictures no matter which settings I use :|


Crystal (Bye Bye Fat Pants) June 23, 2009 at 10:18 am

I wish I had Eric’s camera, I love taking photos. I do have a pretty good Kodak though, which I feel takes nice, crisp photos. Maybe I’ll just have to challenge you after you’re done with Eric :P


Katrina (gluten free gidget) June 23, 2009 at 10:19 am

I vote for the goddess! After all, I am a Gluten Free Goddess! :-)


Tanya June 23, 2009 at 10:22 am

Yay camera wars. I use my cellphone camera most of the time (I know *gasp* :0)


Krista June 23, 2009 at 10:33 am

July 1st, here we come!!! :)


leslie June 23, 2009 at 10:38 am

lol, this post was great. the photo quality with eric’s camera is amazing!


Danielle C. June 23, 2009 at 10:39 am

Exciting! I love the idea of a picture showdown. Tell Eric to BRING IT!


Jessica June 23, 2009 at 10:39 am

Aw awesome and look at you holding that camera like a professional too! Go you!!!!
I’m so excited, photography is one of my passions!!! :)


Allison June 23, 2009 at 10:41 am

Canada Day!


Katherine June 23, 2009 at 10:53 am

The pictures are going to be amazing, I know it! I’m guessing Canada Day too, though I wish it was starting tomorrow! ;-)

Have a great day!


Danielle June 23, 2009 at 11:25 am

Wow, that’s an amazing camera! May the best photographer win ;)


Jenn Eats Nutritiously Now June 23, 2009 at 3:27 pm

I’m so jealous of that camera. I just lost my camera and I’m so sad I could just cry.


Chrissy June 23, 2009 at 9:22 pm

I am SO gonna take part in this!! :) I cant WAIT!!


Randi June 23, 2009 at 11:40 pm

Canada Day! I’m definitely doing this one!!!


Cryst June 24, 2009 at 5:39 am
