Something Wonderful !

This is a happy day. I just ordered a new camera: a Nikon D40 digital SLR with two zoom lens. I'm so excited I want to dance. I have been thinking about this for a long time and debating for quite a while which camera to buy. It came down to the Nikon or a Canon Rebel XS. I choose the Nikon because it came with two lens for the same price as the Canon with just one lens. I read books and researched both cameras for months. I bought it at RitzCamera.com. They were having a sale that ended today so ...., push came to shove and I decided this was it.
I have a passion for photography and wanting a really good camera has always been a dream for me. So I will have a quiet talk with my Canon Power Shot A520 and tell the little camera that I still love it and will still use it and carry it with me . I won't forget all the years of loyal service that it has given me. It's scratched up and the lens doesn't open without some help. It has been through rain, dust, wind and snow and never failed me yet. It's been the best little point and shoot I've ever had...,but, now I'm ready for a step up and , oh my gosh, I'm so excited.
Bees on flowers and deer at a distance, mountains with snow and praying mantis on my roses; nature is an endless supply of great photo opportunities..., and then there are the BAMBINOS. Hey, baby boys!! Here comes your crazy Noni with a new camera: Better run and hide......

I can't wait.
