Happy at home....1st shot with the d700 back in my arms.
Yesterday was like Christmas. My d700 came back in the mail after a two week spa vacation in the Nikon repair center. The past weeks or so was a great time to spend with an old friend my d90 and catch up on old times. My husband laughed as I danced the waltz around the kitchen and gave a lift to my camera body that was all perfectly wrapped in plastic. I felt like a character from Glee as I broke out in song of Paul Simon's singing,
“I got a Nikon camera
I love to take a photograph
So Mama, don't take my Kodachrome away.”
My crowd of imaginary Glee-mates chime in the chorus, “Mama don’t take my Kodachrome”. I have had the camera for nearly a year now, but in the spirit of spring, it felt new and bursting with possibilities. Despite the rain I walk outside with no lens, no battery and press the shutter as my imagination runs wild. In true Glee style, the singers are jumping from one patch of grass to another with camera in hand, belting out the tune as they click away.
“You give us those nice bright colors
You give us the greens of summers
Makes you think all the world's a sunny day, oh yeah! “
In life there are little moments of sheer glee...this is one of them.
