Cameras and Shoes

This is one of the last images I had taken with David’s Canon 40d.   I reluctantly returned it to him yesterday after having used it since August.  But, I didn’t hang my head for long because my new NIKON D90 arrived later in the afternoon!!  

I spent hours reading the owner’s manual and then playing with all of the unfamiliar buttons and settings.  I am in love!!  Now to start accumulating the new lenses I want…

So, back to this picture.  High above the Seattle street, the irretrievable shoes kicked the wind.   These look like perfectly good shoes, which makes me wonder if an angry mother later beat some barefoot child and sent him to bed without supper for throwing them over this cable?

  1. Congratulations on your new camera! Wishing you many happy hours taking photographs with it.

    You did take some wonderful shots with that Canon. Can’t imagine why you’d think a Nikon would be better! 😉

    1. Oh, this Nikon will get plently of use, Lisa. 🙂

      I did like David’s Canon – I think it just comes back to Nikon being my first good point and shoot, and I just got used to how the controls were set up and the photo quality. Really, if someone would have handed me a Canon and said keep it, I would have!

    1. Let the Canon vs. Nikon wars begin…Muhahaha. Just kidding. You know I loved your 40d, but there’s just something about Nikon for me. I think it just goes back to a Nikon being my first real camera and all.

  2. Great shot Jolene! Can’t understand why anyone would want to throw away perfectly good looking shoes. Although, I have to admit; I didn’t like to wear shoes when I was young kid and actually got beat for being barefoot. Though, I did get to eat supper. 😉

    1. P.S. Welcome to Nikon D90 club! I knew you would love it. Here is a book that’s a lot more useful than the annoying manual your camera came with. David Busch’s Nikon D90 guide book. It tells you everything and more about the camera. They sell it at
