Back In Business

There has been research suggesting that taking photos hampers ones ability to remember that specific occasion, and a recent Time Magazine article detailing the same.

All the research in the world though cannot change the fact that some of us love to take photographs and consider photography our number one hobby.  I have been on a forced sabbatical from this due to the theft of my Nikon D80 in Buenos Aires this past February.  But now I’m back in business, thanks to my sister’s former husband and friend of the family Randy, who has become quite a serious photographer and found himself with a new Nikon D4, and was kind enough to sell me his Nikon D7000 at a reasonable price.

I spent the last week of May in Oregon getting acquainted with my new Nikon 7000.  All of the photos in this blog were taken with the new camera.

We visited the Schreiner’s Iris Gardens in Kaizer, Oregon, a wonderful place to practice with a new camera and try some different settings.
