The Letter R

This was taken after a good friend of mine had given me a loan of his Nikon D50, a DSLR camera. I was experimenting with DSLR as I wanted to buy one for myself but I didn't want to spend all that money without at least road testing a few models first. It's a rather large investment that your making in a small piece of technology.

I was just one of those things I walked into my daughters room as the sun was setting and it happened to be creating such a strong shadow on the wall with the letter R. Its the initial of my daughter's name on of the first presents she got when she was born. R for Rowan, as in the tree or the berry, not as in the Actor or the Archbishop.

I just thought I had to get the camera out. It was a perfect shadow to me, it's shape and definition. I was one of a few that I took of the shelf, all in the aid of experimenting with the settings on the DSLR. It such a great creative tool that after taking a few more photographs, I decided to start saving my pennies. It was something I had to have. The quality of the images compared to the point and shoot we have was almost night and day, and me being a novice at this. I was more than pleased with results.

Now my pennies are spent and I'm now waiting for my DSLR to be delivered in the next few days.
