It has been almost four months since I have been able make photographs. I broke my Nikon D70 in early September for the second time. My last photos were of spiders and a few street signs. I was not satisfied with the results.
With an estimated repair bill of $850 dollars, I decided to wait until I could afford to upgrade to a new camera body. I'm moving up to the Nikon D300. I should have it in my hands in a few days.
Taking photo's is stress relief for me. I cannot tell you how many times I have spoken the words "I wish I had my camera" these past few weeks. I tend to look for the odd in people and in the world around me. I need to get back to making photos, there is much oddness these days.
I have a small camera that I carry around for work. When I use it for anything other than snapshots, the results are craptacular. A digital SLR gives me a much wider range of control. My first subject will be the City of Carson. It's painted over much of it's ugliness. It is time to expose more of this truly ugly city to my lens.
