Where: My front yard
When: Sept. 2, 2009
Why: Because I have a new camera, a Nikon D5000 that my lovely wife gave me for my birthday. I took a few dozen test shots yesterday, and man, is it nice. It's my first digital SLR, so it's like a whole new world.
This photo is 800 actual pixels from a much larger picture that I was using as a depth-of-field test. I hadn't planned to post any of those first shots; most of them are worthless. But this one surprised me. Until I saw it on my computer screen, I had no idea that fly was there. Still, I'll take it.
