The Not-For-Christmas Gift

Several years ago, Motor Man decided that we needed a nice camera, so we bought our first Nikon. After a few years (and many, many photos), we saw the dreaded “shutter error” message.  Rather than sending it off for repairs, we bought another camera.

A few weeks ago, we thought about that camera sitting unused in the closet, and decided to have it repaired and give it to Marshall. Since it wasn’t NEW, we didn’t want it to actually be a Christmas gift. So we gave it to him last week.

I’ve shared some of Marshall’s photos here in the past. Here are a couple of new ones, but bear in mind that these were  taken BEFORE he was given the Nikon.  He has a small digital camera, but I really think these were taken with his cell phone.

Snuggles (a.k.a. Snugg) is one of Marshall’s favorite subjects to photograph. Snugg likes to pose for Marshall.

Although we haven’t had a lot of winter weather yet, Marshall took this one morning last week (from inside his car) of the frost on the windshield.

I’m anxious to see what photos Marshall captures with his not-new camera.

  1. Well obviously Marshall inherited the “photography” talent from YOU – I love the frosty window and the photos of Snugg who is definitely posing for him in those photos! Nice to give Marshall the camera – he’s obviously putting it to very good use!


  2. Cell phones take amazingly good pictures. How nice to pass such a fine camera on to M.

  3. my computer keyboard is being a nuisance

  4. Snugg looks very fierce out in the “jungle.” 🙂

    Very nice of you to find that camera a new home with Marshall, MJ

  5. Snugg’s little pink nose and front feet are darling! Looking forward to more pictures with the new to Marshall camera!

  6. Looks like he has the photography bug too! 😀

  7. Finally wrestled the keyboard to do the right thing. Now that Marshall has a camera, he’ll be taking even more gorgeous pictures. Photography runs in the family!

  8. yay! passing it along!
