Jeff, our UPS guy, is going to be my best friend next week when he delivers my new camera. I found a great deal on a "like new minus" (basically new without original box) Nikon D40. With the standard 18-55mm lens and a 55-200mm lens. So we're eating rice and beans and whatever random things we find in the cabinet until next payday, but that's how we roll. Sometimes.
Today I got back the slides from the Velvia 50 I sent to Yellowstone Photo. Overall, I was pretty happy with the way they turned out. Some were way overexposed, but I'm still climbing this learning curve.
