A New Member of the Family

A Nikon D5000

John's dad, better known as David, bought us a NEW beautiful camera for a birthday/anniversary/Christmas present. He'll never have to buy us anything again, though I know he'll still continue to spoil his grandson.

As John said today, "That's a whole lotta camera!" and I have to agree. I am really excited about the camera, but know nothing about digital SLRs, so I'm going to have to learn little by little. Luckily, it also has an automatic option too, so I can take pictures while I learn all the manual options. I did play around with it today in Gigi and Grandpa's backyard. It was fun, but I've got a lot to learn. It felt like a pro toting the big camera around my neck and listening to the rapid shutter noise, though my photos fall short of professional quality or artistic style. But, I'll keep practicing!

Here are some shots from today - after I deleted about 150.
