Witty Wednesday

Thanks to my friend, Amanda, for sharing this on Facebook:

Except in my case, it would look more like this:

Yep, a Nikon girl, through and through... :)

Speaking of Nikon, guess what is coming to live with me very, very soon!?!?!

Oh, baby... come to Mama!!

I have been waiting for this day since last summer when my Nikon contact sent me a D300s to play with over our summer holidays to the Jersey Shore & Pennsylvania!

Not THAT Jersey Shore... the other, more tasteful side!

Anyhow, I decided to finally just ordered the darn thing.  I was debating, because technology changes so fast and I didn't want to get it, only to realize that they came out with a bigger/faster/better camera a few months later!  I also wanted to see if the price would come down a bit.  But everything that we've read about it has said that the prices have remained stable, or HAVE INCREASED on the D300s because they are actually increasing in value, due to their superior quality.  Not to mention the devastation in Japan, which destroyed the Nikon manufacturing plant - the laws of supply and demand, demonstrated!

So I can't wait to get that baby in my hands!!!!

I've also ordered a new Speedlight.  Mine is nearly 10 years old and while it still practically in mint condition, I want a flash that can rotate not only 90 degrees up, but that can swivel 180 degrees.  Here's what I've ordered:

Because of limited availability, I asked the camera store to hold it for me until Friday when I'll be in town - hopefully my camera will come sooner than later so I can play with both this weekend!


  1. Ooh, lucky you!
    Have fun and I can't wait to see what you do with your new "baby"!
    Hugs xx

  2. Hey Sue, we're almost twins! Twin camera and speedlights, anyway! Hopefully we can take them out together soon! :-}


Thank you for your comments - I appreciate the feedback!
