Hey There!




Long time, no new post. Sorry! We've been crazy-busy here in New Iberia. I did find the time today to take a ride over to Lafayette to pick up my belated Christmas/early birthday present from Gil - my beautiful new Nikon D90! Woohoo!!! I have been looking at this camera for months now, and thanks to Sunday's Best Buy ad and Gil's American Express, it's all mine. I really want to put the time in and absorb the material in the manual so that I can learn to use this lil baby to the best of its capability. For now, however, it is set on auto everything. And that's okay! I was fooling around with it this afternoon and took this photo of Anna's cat, Ginger. Not too bad, right? And tonight I took a series of pictures of Matthew's pudgy little toes while he was in the bathtub. I can't wait to print them out and see how they look on paper!! I decided to get the backup battery pack (can't recall at the moment what the technical name for it is) that is attached to the bottom of the camera because I'm tired of realizing in the middle of a really good set of shots that my battery is dying. Plus, it looks really cool! :)

I haven't managed to complete a layout in the last week, but as soon as I do, I'll post it here. Thanks for stopping by! :)

I was at Best Buy this weekend and almost bought that same special they had on the D90, I have been looking at the D80 but keep going back and forth. I would like to know how you like it and how easy it is to learn that pretty baby! I know you will enjoy it. I am trying to hold out for the family to get me mine for Mother's Day, but man it's soooo hard!

Welcome to the world of nikon. There's so much to learn. Your pics are exceptionally clear. What lens did you purchase? Can't wait to see more pics.

YAY!!! I am so glad that you finally got your new camera. I knew it wouldn't be long when you emailed me right after I got mine, lol. The pictures you took are great!!! One day we can get together and I can give you the lowdown on a few things that Karen Russell taught us.
