It has served me well.
And it is leaving me a week from Thursday.
A friend of Nadia's has agreed to buy it.
She's about to become a mom for the first time.
She'll have her hands full...but when she has room in them, she'll have a wonderful Nikon to hold, too.
This really is an amazing camera.
It's the perfect starter for anyone wanting a DSLR. It's quick. It's easy. And even on full auto it takes amazing photos.
I'm about to order the Nikon D90 from Amazon.com.
I'm so giddy my fingers are shaking.
A winter's worth of hat making and it's finally mine. My fingers are calloused. I have carpal tunnel syndrome. But it's all worth it.
(And I'm kidding about the carpal tunnel. And the callouses. I'm just a whiner.)
The only thing that could top this moment is...
A 70-200 2.8 falling from the sky and into my lap. Free of charge.
Even a 24-70 2.8 would be fine.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: I'm not picky.
