the early birthday gift

My birthday isn't until a few more days but the Hubby surprised me with an early gift: a long-coveted, wonderfully practical, I-love-it-immensely DSLR. Woot! Woot!

I finally have my own (whee, I no longer have to borrow someone else's), and a real spankin' nice one at that! I'm excited to start capturing art with it ^_^ It'll take some getting used to, of course; it's a Nikon D5000 and it's way different from the Olympus I've gotten used to. I delved into the user's manual and started testing the camera's settings earlier today; perhaps tomorrow I could start snapping photos.
