i would like to introduce you...


to the newest member of the family.  My new Nikon D3.  Yeah.  I can't believe it either.  I have been planning on upgrading my lenses, but this was NOT on my radar at all!  And this thing is insane!  The aperture can run up to 6400.  Dude, I could shoot in the dark with this thing.  The quality and crispness of each shot is awesome.  Of course, I still need to explore the bells and whistles.  I'm a Canon girl you know.  


Why the new camera you ask?  I'm not quite ready to say why, but you all will be the first to know.  I think I may need to name these guys too.  They are with me nearly as much as my kids.  Any ideas?  Canon and Nikon is rather boring.  

These pics were all taken at Crown Center in Kansas City.  More pics, most is color, are on flickr right now.  You know, in case you were curious.

Oooh, you lucky ducky! I am so jealous!! My camera sucks ever since the girls decided to "play" with it one day and screwed it all up, now it won't focus properly. *wipes away a big fat tear* Have fun! The shots you took are just beautiful!

Great photos. I've always been a Canon girl too, but my FIL gave me a Nikon for Christmas last year. I still feel much more comfortable with my Canon even though I like the smaller size of the Nikon. Good luck with your Nikon!
