Don't You Dare Say Cheese


Tomorrow, my very first dSLR camera will arrive in the mail. It's not the Nikon D80 I've wanted for years or the Nikon D90 I've come to want in the past few months. Instead, it's a Canon Rebel XS, which is roughly one quarter of the cost (for a body plus two lenses). I'm so excited that I could scream, but instead I think I'm going to spend the night coming up with a list of places and things that I most want to photograph. New Zealand, Paris, Rome, every inch of Chicago, a formal tea party with Juan Pedro the Sock Monkey and some of our stuffed animal friends, my cat (ad nauseum), a very specific sunset, and my immediate family and grandparents this Thanksgiving.

What are the things you most wish to capture on film or in your memories?
