I got a new digital camera! Years ago, seven or eight years ago, I bought a Sony with the 3.5 floppy disk and I loved it, it took gorgeous pics and I liked the floppies because then I didn't have to have a computer around and it ran off a rechargable battery with loads of time on it.

But it broke about two years ago and I've been wanting a good camera ever since then but didn't have/want to spend hundreds of dollars.

Today I got this one, the Nikon CoolPix 5600 and it's mahvelous! Lovely big, clear, crisp pictures even if I'm not steady and it has a viewfinder if the LCD display is washed out by bright light plus lots of other spiffy features, even video with audio. I also got a 1 gig memory stick and a NiMH recharger so I don't have to keep buying batteries.

So I'm back to taking pictures and I figured I'd post one a day and work on learning to take better, more professional looking pictures, more artsy stuff as well as good everyday photos.
