Happy Birthday to me! Happy Birthday to me! Yes, today is my birthday and I am not ashamed to admit that I am 33. Actually, I feel quite good about it. Or maybe I am still beaming from the birthday surprise that I received this morning. My family went in together and bought me a brand new camera. That's right. I now have a brand new baby. I have a feeling my Nikon D60 10.2 MP Digital SLR will be my new best friend.
I have been dropping subtle and some not so subtle hints for several months now that a digital SLR camera would make my life SO much easier . Ok, not really, but I do take LOTS of pictures. Don't these memories need to be captured in the best way possible? I sure think so.
I have been looking around for a used one. You know to be greener. I did not want anything fancy and if I could use something that someone else did not want or need any longer even better. I have discovered used cameras are still expensive. For just a little more money, you can get a brand new one that has the latest bells & whistles. (Can you tell I feel a tad bit guilty?) I have decided to justify this lavish gift, I will just have to use the camera forever!!!
Well, I am off to read my camera's manual. I can't think of a better way to spend my lunch break.
