On With The New: Introducing The Nikon D3100

As some of you may recall, my trusty Canon Powershot went bust back in June. I've been saving up for a new camera ever since... and this week, it all finally came to fruition.

Yesterday as I was rolling out dough for chapatis, the UPS truck showed up to deliver my brand-spanking-new camera. Sadly, since I was in the middle of making dinner (and covered in flour), I had to wait until after work today to play with my new Nikon D3100. Yet what serendipity - the light was perfect.

So far, I haven't done much other than shoot a little bit in Auto mode. But even though these pictures were all taken in Auto, their quality is infinitely superior to my last camera. (And my Droid, whose quality snapshots you have all been enjoying for the last three and a half months.) Soon, I'll start experimenting with shooting manually (especially with my other lenses!), but for now... all I can say is that I am pleased.

I messed around with the blog design a bit so it could accommodate larger pictures, and I'm liking the result. So without further ado, here are the first of what I hope will be many, many pictures to come. Enjoy!
