The Return of a Loved One

You may remember that I posted a while back about how my poor camera had been broken during a trip to Atlanta. Since then I have been using a digital camera, which, while nice when it comes to the instant gratification of uploading pictures 2 minutes after taking them, does not have the capabilities of my old Nikon N80.

Well, I am pleased to announce that after a long, long wait (the camera had to be sent to an official Nikon technician center in New Jersey, where they took almost two months to fix it), my camera is back!! I look forward to grabbing my macro lens and getting some quality closeups for future posts.

In the meantime, I apologize for the not-so-great quality of some of the photos that have been posted here lately. When I see the gorgeous pictures that some of my favorite bloggers are taking, I feel a twinge of embarrassment for the crappy lighting and blurry closeups. (I am going to have to do a roundup of my favorite photos soon, because there just isn't room to list all the different blogs and blog posts with wonderful photography going on these days! Keep up the good work guys!)

But I do have something to blame: daylight savings time is working against me! When I get home it is dark, when I leave for work, it is dark. Hopefully once it ends this Sunday I will be able to get some pictures with natural light instead of the awful lighting we have in my apartment, and we can all ooh and aww over my perfect photos of perfectly plated food...oh wait...I think I must have nodded off there-it sounds like I am dreaming again. Its been a loooong week. But its Friday night now, and I have celebrated by baking this delicious sounding Pumpkin Gingerbread. It smells wonderful and I am sure it will taste so as well. I guess I'd better go try some and see!

Oh good luck with your camera - it must feel great to have it back. I am looking forward to more stunning shots to make my mouth water.

Well, the sad thing is a week has gone by and I haven't even put the batteries in. Between work and school it just hasn't been happening. Just a taste of what will happen when I start school full-time in January I guess.

Nikon now release D300 series which is newest professional camera in mid-end class. The interesting in this series is 12 megapixel CMOS sensor usage with automatic dirt reducer feature. This feature is new technology which figured in by Nikon at their camera, remembers there are not one of Nikon DSLR series having this feature.
