My first official picture post with the new camera (and blonder hair...)
 I've been thinking about buying a new camera for quite awhile now.  I've had a few people try and talk me out of it, but I decided that it was something I really wanted, so I spoiled myself and got one!  I think I need to quit listening to what other people think and do things for myself (not that I usually listen anyways)... but I'm tired of feeling bad about the choices I make.

I'm officially the proud owner of a Nikon D300s!! With some lens that I don't even know what it is... actually... its stamped right on it.  The AF-S NIKKOR 18-105mm ... I have no idea what it means, but it works for me.

I've been reading so many lovely blogs over the last little while, and your guys pictures are AMAZING!!  I could never figure out why my "point-and-shoot" could never compare to the pictures I always see... Well, its like Racing a Pontiac Sunfire and a Ferrari, there are just obviously better components to the latter.

My real inspiration came from the lovely El over at MY INSPIRATION with her CHERRY BLOSSOM post.  That was the final push I needed to go and get myself a camera.  I realize that its not just the camera, but obviously the photographer behind them... all I know is that the moment I saw those pictures, I knew I had found a new hobby to pursue. 


  1. Hey Nikon girl! Congrats, I'm pretty sure you'll learn how to work it in no time! Can't wait to see what you capture, I want one too, but shoes and bags always come in the way!

  4. @Tash... I promise I'm not! But your right... its kind of looking that way! Don't worry, you have me beat in the fabulous everything else department!
