The New Camera Is In!

Finally...my new camera is in!  This is now my 5th Nikon camera in the last 6 years.  Wow, that's a lot!  One of those cameras I lost on a United airplane and of course they "couldn't find it"...sorry I'm not bitter...so anyways, really I've gone through 4 upgrades.  This new one should hold up for a few years, I'm hoping.  Well, I've tested it out and the image above is the result of my all day tinkering.  Thank you all for being patient with my less than impressive photos the last couple of months and probably another few posts till I get the settings right.  I did sell my last lens and upgraded to a new one as well.  I'm excited, can't wait to take some photos!

Coltivare (Heights)

I've been pronouncing it wrong all along.  Coltivare is pronounced "colt-a-vhar-a".  Anyways, it's been awhile since I've been back, but despite that long 1.5 hour wait, it's a great local place to pop in for dinner.  They have a nice garden so at least it's a nice atmosphere.  Go with someone you like and it goes by like a breeze.  Today we went with David and Diana and we had a great time.  I was inspired by their veggie garden.  I'm still working on the placement of my garden...stay tuned...
