I bought my DSLR at the beginning of this year...in March to be exact. I remember my nights scouring the Internet for tips, reviews and prices to find just the right camera. How much did I want to spend, how big did I want it to be, Canon vs. Nikon…you get the idea. Finally, I decided...I picked the Nikon D5000, excitedly ordered and waited for its arrival! When the knock on the door finally came, my heart sang with excitement! I tore the tape of the box quickly found the charger and battery and started getting some juice to those batteries! Meanwhile I admired my new baby and waited in anticipation for the light on the charger to quit blinking. I did chores to keep busy, sneaking glances at the flashing light as I passed through the kitchen with loads of laundry. Then it stopped, the light stayed constant! It was time! Click, click, click! Before I knew it I was on my way to filling up my 1GB memory card and knew a larger one would end up on my shopping list in the very near future! My first shots were of my boys, my youngest trapped in his high chair and my oldest running away from the strange contraption I was pointing at him! Over the last several months I have grown tremendously! I've participated in challenges, entered competitions, made some cash off my hobby and started a photographic journey to 365 days of photos! Today, eh, tonight, this morning, I don't know its super late, early?? I wanted to share my first shots from my camera in addition to my favorite 365 photos from the month of September! It’s been a crazy journey, but I’ve loved every minute of it!
