I am not a jewelry kind of gal. The only jewelry I own is my engagement ring and wedding band and I am perfectly content with my collection ending there! Larry sometimes jokes however, that one anniversary I will get a little blue box complete with diamond earrings. Although I would not turn down the diamonds I cannot imagine the excitement being any greater than today when my brown box arrived on the doorstep!
As a Mother’s Day/ Birthday gift Larry got me a new camera! For years I have been interested in photography. With no room, or money for an at home art studio, my painting and drawing days have, for now, drawn to a close. Photography however, takes very little room and yet you create and capture beauty all the same. Now with Ava I have access to the best subject ever!
I did a lot of research while trying to decide between Canon or Nikon; Canon XS a Nikon D60 both with two lenses or should I spend the same amount and go with the Canon XSi with only one lens for now. Canon bodies were rated higher but the mid-range Nikon lenses that came with the D60 were rated higher than the Canons? Both the Nikon lenses had image stablization but Canon 75mm-250mm that came with the XS did not. What to do… I stumbled upon this saying…liked it…decided it was better than eenie-meenie-minie-moe…and let’s face it there really is no wrong choice between these two brands…
Canons are the best cameras available designed by engineers, and Nikons are the best cameras one can buy designed by photographers.
The Nikon D60 it is, a mid-range camera with all the manual capabilities I wanted and two well rated lenses both with image stablization.
So here we go; aperture, shutter speed, ISO, white balance, metering…I cannot tell you just how excited and totally overwhelmed I am to begin scaling the enormous mountain of photography!
