The End of an Era Brings the Start of a New Era

So, this is sort of old news, but my well-liked Canon S2IS camera died back in the beginning of December. I figured out that I've taken over 25,000 pictures with that thing! The last picture I took on the Canon was during one of our first snow/ice storms of the winter, on 12/5/09. It's sort of an appropriate picture for my camera to die on:

After a couple months of research, debate, and waiting, I finally have decided and found a great deal on the Nikon D90, thus ushering in a new era of DSLR photos for me. I opened it up Monday night to much fanfare at home. :) The first picture I took with my new camera (and 35mm lens), shows the shock and un-readiness of everyone (including myself) when it made a big flash and CLICK! sound:

As much as I liked my old camera, I'm really liking this new one a lot! :)

Yay! I like it too. :) I think we need one of Shadow up here--she's more photogenic!!
