Hi, you guys!

Yeah, I'm not sure who "you guys" is in that title up there. I haven't posted in several years and besides a couple friends and a couple family members, it's not like I had any dedicated blog followers. However...

I finally, finally have a new camera in my life. It's a Nikon D3100, with two lenses, and it's beautiful. All of my free time for the foreseeable future is going to be spent learning to use it well. I've decided to use this site as a way to share some of that journey for anyone who's interested. And I might accidentally write something funny along the way.

On MLK Day, a friend (who knows lots about cameras and picture-taking) and I went to the zoo to play around with the camera for the first time. It was a good day for it - overcast so that shadows weren't a big problem, and not too crowded early in the day because it was chilly. Here are some of my favorites from the day. I haven't learned much about photoshop yet, so they're presented with a very minimum of tweaking as far as color or light.
