Frosty in a Box

I got a new camera on Saturday (early Christmas present)!! Is it wrong to celebrate Christmas in November? Well, it makes a lot more sense than Christmas in July! And honestly, it may take me til Christmas to learn the basics!

I've been working with a Samsung point and shoot ever since starting my site back in January 2008... and with my 2 year anniversary coming up, I decided it was time to graduate to a 'big boy' camera =). I went with a new Nikon D3000 that came with an 18-55mm and a 55-200mm lens.

I've been reading through my Nikon for Dummies book trying to get a 'feel' for the new camera - but it's still a little scary handling a piece of equipment that costs as much as a car I once bought =) ok, granted, the car was a hooptie and it was 1995, but still.

My photo today is Frosty, who could care less about cameras... he has difficulty passing up a box though. Any box, any size, and he's trying to cram is ample derriere into it! This is my first photo with the new cam... I have lots of room to improve, and will be working diligently to do so =)

Well done on the new camera. I'm thinking of taking the plunge next year!

What is it with cats and boxes?! Mine is the same!
