actually it's 40d yang now
spring (means obligatory photo of ephemeral blooming flowers )
this camera is growing on me.
on another note.. had this on my laptop and 17" monitor while editing, and the difference is astounding.. so i'll just say i liked the way it looked on _my_ monitor.. probably looks like crap on yours. =(

edit: i think i've taken this down and re-uploaded at least 20 times now

the sensor is the only redeeming quality about this camera
so ed has graciously loaned me his d40 so i can continue feeding my photography addiction despite my stupidity.. which we won't get into because it pains me to think about it. anyways, it takes great pictures.. and that's about it. this camera is so absurdly tiny and cramped. it needs a grip (nikon doesn't even make one.. you have to get the one targus makes) and a decent midrange zoom (i'd go with the 24-70) to flesh it out. the shutter release sounds papery and.. unsatisfying. and in manual mode, if you have a manual focus lens attached (like the one pictured) it doesn't show the light meter. the settings display in the viewfinder doesn't show you iso, and if you don't half-press the shutter, the main display is annoyingly on all the time (unless you turn it off.. in which case you have to press a button to see your settings.) you have to go into menus to get to a lot of the settings. and AF only works with certain lenses.
but.. and this is a big but.. it does have a great sensor.. which pretty much makes it all okay. kind of.
want a dog
there was this guy who was like "yo, can i borrow him? girls love dogs!" which was funny b/c the dog was surrounded by guys and a girl was the owner
in chinatown, outside of a shop. really affectionate :)
ridiculous ball of poof that was all over the place
CUTEST. NOSE. EVAR. (i think it's a labradoodle?)
my life would be so much better with a dog
edit: found this one while sorting through old shots
those sunglasses are so deliciously 80's
he just oozes cool
