Pirates and a New Camera

Last week Phil and I met Sonja to watch a Pirates game at PNC park. Her daughter Stephanie was there too along with her friend Sam.

You can’t help but feel sorry for this guy with a name like that,

My favorite player is McCutcheon

We enjoyed the game, especially since the Pirates are doing so well this year.
The really big news though,is that Phil got me a new camera for my birthday next month. He got me a Canon Rebel T2I

It is so awesome!
Here are some photos that I took last Sunday.

The difference  I notice the most is the clarity of the pictures. I also love that there is no delay when taking a picture,you just snap,snap,snap!
