The Plunge

As I enter deep and deeper into this blogging world I am discovering that good pictures help make a good blog.  Though tricky editing can make almost any picture look good, the camera also plays a big role.  I believe the iPhone can pretty much do anything I ask of it, the camera on the iPhone seems to fail me from time to time.
So, I took the plunge. I am now the proud owner of a Nikon D5100.  After much research, discussion and consideration (by Kev) we made the big purchase.  I still don't know how to use this thing but I have full intention of taking a few classes... or maybe spending some good time reading the owner's manual!

Check out a some of the pictures I just uploaded from my new toy!

Color Effect- can you see the purple in my sock?
Snowy drive to Bend- can you see the car in front of us?  We couldn't either...
Pip and I working on our blogs, and my crazy night hairdo.
Sun and snow.  Typical Bend winter.

Kev's face after stopping at Jack in the Box for tacos.  It took a lot of convincing to get this guy to stop for a little greasy grub.

This is the start.  Hopefully I can learn a thing or two about taking pictures!

Check out Insta-Friday.  Happy Friday!!Happy Friday!
