I've wanted a DSLR camera for years. Ever since my first (film!) photography class during my junior year of high school, I've loved the process of taking photos and manipulating light and creating memories. I've owned point-and-shoots but have missed the ability to control different elements of the photo-taking process. So I did some research and compared brands. And I decided to go with a Nikon D5100. I've only taken a dozen or so pictures so far (mostly of Big Kitty) but, I have to say... I'm already addicted. I see a new career in my future (I kid, I kid).
When I told Lee I bought my camera today (he's in Spain on business), he said, "You got a camera. I'm getting another bike."
I don't think he was kidding, either.
Garmin stats: 4 miles/39 minutes. Heart rate kept riiiiiight at 140. Felt great!
