I just bought a tripod and remote control for my new camera. The main reason I wanted these items was so I could get good family photos, which are few and far between. We are going to Yellowstone in a couple of weeks and my main goal is to leave with at least one family photo that will work on a Christmas Card. I took the new toys out today and played with them. I grabbed Boofy from the henhoue to pose with me. She took it all quite well.
