Mandy’s been asking more and more questions about photography and getting more and more frustrated with the restrictions imposed by her old point and shoot. She’s thinking of things she wants to do and can’t.
So she’s been saving up her allowance since January, and finally we subsidized her savings enough to order a used Pentax *ist DS2 and lens. It looks like Bryan’s camera but smaller: it’s the cutest thing I’ve seen all week!
Upon hearing about her camera, Mandy’s elementary gifted/talented teacher said: “I am looking forward to Mandy’s photographic contributions – it seems like after the initial giddiness of ridiculous enthusiasm has worn off, really good things come from her!”
