New camera

Felt the need to update cameras before we take off for northern climes. My little Kodak was years old and not as reliable as it used to be. I am hoping to able to capture some of the beauty that is Alaska.

Having said that, felt the need to get some practice in with my new Nikon.

Little Companion.

One of the stunning pictures she brought home in her art portfolio today, free hand. Pretty impressive, huh.

So far I'm loving the new camera. Would have like to have practiced more but, face it, no one is really interested in seeing a bunch of moving boxes!

My photos on my blog are getting to be embarrassing! I need a new camera. When I see all the awesome photos in blogland, mine look like photos from a throw away camera:)

Hi Valerie! Oh, you're doing a great job with your new camera. Your photos look wonderful.I've often thought I should get one of the spiffy ones, but don't know if I could learn to use it! :)
Oh, you have a little artist on your hands. Very good art work.
Have a great time on your trip! We took an Alaskan cruise in September and it was awesome.
bE a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Wow, your Little Companion is so talented. I can't do that well now at my age. The face is wonderful.
Hope you enjoy your camera, it's always good to have the right equipment when traveling. I have one of the little netbooks, and like it a lot. I've had it for several months now. The only thing I did was add a gig of memory, I was very proud that I did it myself, and I got a little portable cd/dvd player. Now it does most everything a bigger one will do.
