I mean that literally, too.
So I got the Nikon today… I LOVE IT!!! OMG!! But I totally ended up in some shit with it…
Greg was kind enough to take Sam with him to the store. Just before they left, UPS stopped by with my much anticipated package! Greg stayted for the unwrapping and then left shortly after I plugged in the battery. Once the battery was charged,
I decided to go out and play with my new toy.
I was trying to take a picture of these gorgeous purple
weeds flowers. I took them with our point and shoot camera and they came out pretty good. Here’s the photo for reference:
Right so I’m taking a photo of these flowers again and since the Nikon has a 55mm lens on it, I can get a helluva lot closer. Unfortunately, I needed to steady myself. Without thinking about it, I put my knee down so that I could rest my elbow on it to get the shot.
I took the picture, looked at it, decided to take another and then got up. Instantly, I felt this wet, cold sensation on my knee. I look down, and sure enough,
I actually knelt down in shit.
Here it is, just to show you…
Doesn’t that just make you want to go and have a snack? Maybe some chocolate?
Needless to say, I ran inside and cleaned the shit out of my leg… pun intended. Soap, scalding hot water and all. Then I went back out and snapped the shit picture (heh heh) you see above. But at least something good came out of it…
Here’s those purple flowers with my new Nikon D5100
This thing is AMAZING!!! Check out these shots that I took afterwards!
This was a really interesting pine cone, so I had to snap it!
There are a ton more, but I need to save something for Pic of the Day! Okay, one more:
This is the first GOOD picture I have gotten of this little kitty. She’s always moving and our older camera just couldn’t focus on her. But damn, that Nikon KICKS ASS!!!
Don’t worry, I’m sure there will be more tomorrow for your viewing pleasure!
