Up until this moment, 95% of the pictures I've taken for this blog have been shot with my iPhone.
A few of the pics in my first posts were taken with an old point-and-shoot camera, but it didn't take long to realize that my iPhone (plus some creative editing) produced WAY better images than that poor old thing.
Pathetic, I know.
Another tidbit of interesting info is that up until a few weeks ago, Mr. Concrete hadn't read a single word, or looked at a single photo on this little blog.
When I'd ask him, he'd just say something like, "why read about it when I've watched you do everything on the kitchen counter?"
I'll admit the man had a point.
Maybe it was the many hours he spent waiting for me to come to bed while I edited crappy photos.
Or it could've been the teensy amount of griping I rarely did about my need for a better camera... but Mr. Concrete figured it out!
Today is our 17th Wedding Anniversary, and I came home from work Friday to find THIS on my nightstand!
A Canon Rebel T3i DSLR camera!
What an amazingly sweet man I have!!
I've basically spent the last 2 days playing and learning.
I can now say words like Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO and have an actual clue what they kind-of mean. (except I just typed iOS instead of ISO... what can I say, I'm an Apple/Mac girl)
So without further ado, here's some of the shots I've played around with this weekend.
With absolutely NO editing!
Please be kind.
I'm a DSLR newbie. :)

I'm super excited to experience the joy of taking pics with a camera that doesn't interrupt my latest pic with a text!
Thanks for such a sweet and unexpected Anniversary present babe! (even though it may be 3 months, or never, till you read this :)
