Pre-Meg I had a great camera, it was a Canon FTb. It went everywhere with me. Sometimes I traveled alone. When I did, my camera was enough company. I was able to spend all the time I wanted setting up a shot. It never complained. Of course, in the pre-digital age, I spent more money on film and developing costs than I spent on the camera. But that was then and this is now.
Terry and I are planning an October trip to Cuba. Much as I love my handy iPhone, I am looking for something more. I’ve been reading camera reviews and specs. I check out the blog Photobotos and covet cameras that would take such amazing photographs. A friend loaned me his Nikon D80 to fiddle with for a week. I chose my yard to check out the quality of the camera, recognizing I am now so rusty I can’t remember more than the most basic techniques for taking a picture. Here are my results:

My feeble attempt to make my overturned wheelbarrow look like art
Looks good to me.
