Sky Watch



I've really just recently been bitten by the photography bug. My darling husband got me an awesome camera for Mom's Day and it has totally transformed my picture taking world. It's a Nikon D60 with an 18/55 Lens and a 55/200 lens. Of course I'm already thinking I'd prefer a 28/70 for my everyday & a Lens that would be able to achieve 300 or so. There's still a ton about this equipment I don't yet understand... but I'm working on it. Currently I'm trying to figure out if it has Macro capability, which might mean I'll have to read the manual - UGH! It's a joy to discover all the terrific stuff you can do and it's been pure bliss to leave all my frustrations behind with the old camera. If you have suggestions or advice I'd love, love, love to hear them! Thanks :)

Uh-oh. Sucker. Between blogging and photography you can pretty much kiss all your other hobbies goodbye. ;-)
