birthday present

Okay, okay. I know it’s not my birthday yet. It will be in a little less than 5 hours, but this was a present that I was given last night by Sean. Coolest damn gift ever. I’ve been drooling after these guys since they started to become affordable for the common people like me. I am now the proud owner of a Nikon D70 digital SLR.

The reason I got the camera a little before my birthday is because Sean and I had planned a trip to the Hassayampa River Preserve, just south of Wickenburg, AZ. It gave me a chance to play with a lot of the basics of my camera. I have no words to describe how much I love my new camera. I still love my film SLR, but my D70 is just too cool. To show you how much I enjoyed playing with my camera, I present to you pictures from the trip, merely hours after taking them rather than like the rest of my Flagstaff pictures that I still haven’t finished cropping.

I am going to have so much fun taking pictures with this camera.
