I got a new camera and just got back from a mini vacation

Super quick update, I'll write more when I have a chance. My husband and I broke down and got the new Nikon D80 camera. We have been researching this particular camera for almost a year. My plan is to take some photography classes so I can master the camera. It arrived in the mail last Wednesday just in time for my mini vacation to the East Coast visiting my mom and dad. I took over 380 pictures; Harvard, the beach, whales, lighthouses, old buildings and much more. Here is just a tease of our whale watch.

Hi Tracey. Congrats on getting the D80. I bought mine last year after a similarly agonizing period of research - I was replacing a beloved old film-based Nikon SLR, so it had to be a no-compromise camera.

It's been an incredible experience so far: I went to the air show near our town yesterday, and shot close to 1,000 pictures. I knew I was in trouble when I filled my first memory card, and it was barely lunchtime.

I'm editing everything now. It's painful :)

Love your pics. Can't wait to see more.
