isn't it fun to experiment and learn at the same time. i actually pulled my manual out again this weekend to review some things before my adventure.
have a wonderful day as always.

Jacob said...

Ah, yes! Fantastic. Don't you love that camera. (By the way, for some really good info on how to use it, check out Ken Rockwell's site (http://www.kenrockwell.com) - you won't find a better one anywhere.

I've got the D300 but he's now saying he'd buy the D90 over that! (Now he tells me!) The D90 is one of the best digital cameras Nikon has made! And a reasonable price, too, considering!

The only time honkin' big is not good is when it's on my ass.

This pic nearly knocked me on it.

Wonderful window shot and I love the hat on top of the hat box. Great touch.

Since I know nothing about photography, can I have that hat?

Interesting thoughtful mood evoked by this brill shot.

LOVE it. I agree with the person who said there is awesome feeling in this photo. I can almost see a little girl coming in and putting on that hat...

Good shot. You are motivating me to actually read my Nikon manual:) I may be up in NYC in March so hopefully we can do lunch. Will let you know as soon as I get the confirmation on the dates.

Not a bad learning curve. This makes me happy. It makes me think of a way of life for which I love. (And I LOVE honkin' big cameras!)
