There are many ways of breaking a heart. Stories were full of hearts broken by love,
but what really broke a heart was taking away its dream - whatever that dream might be.

A New Toy ~ Nikon D-40

Don't hate me just yet. I have a new toy. I decided two years ago at tax time that I would treat myself to a more professional type camera as soon as I could afford one. I love taking pictures. Always have. Now? I can use it as another canvas for my eye. To capture the way I see things.

I am so proud of myself to finally be accomplishing some of the things I have always wanted to do.

Keep your eye on my Old Blog, as I have turned it into a photo blog. Any other shooters, please leave a message there. I want to set up links to photographers there.

OK. I have to work! Happy weeks to all.


  1. Hey good for you!
    I'd looove one one day too.
    I really enjoy taking pictures:)

  2. i am in the market for one, and ali suggested the same camera, or a d50...even.

    what made you decide on this one in particular? i'm still shopping around so i'd like to know.

    i actually got a couple good books on macro photography. i really want to do my research before i make this purchase.

    SOOOO tell me what made you decide on this camera and CONGRATS!! :)

  3. Well, I originally went to buy the canon because of the price. The man put this camera in my hand, and I just said, okay. It feels great in my hand. You can't really take a bad picture with this camera. The only issue I am going to have is the cost of different lenses. And that is something you should investigate. Someone suggested using sigma lenses that were half the price of nikon, but not sure they are compatible.

    thanks becca. yea. I am going to enjoy this purchase for quite some time!

  4. I never hate people for having new toys. It just makes me want new stuff.

  5. Congratulations on your new toy. I know how exciting that is! I'm still oozing over my Mac, and I bought that last September!

  6. Cool camera! I'm enjoying your new photo blog. :o)

  7. Nice camera. :D
    And congrats on losing weight. Sorry I haven't been visiting, I've been pretty busy

  8. I don't hate you as much as I am incredibily jealous of you.
