Likely the Last Batch of Photos from the Trusty D40 as I Anticipate Delivery of a Full-frame 5DmkII

Old and new.

Like all good friends, I’ve outgrown my Nikon D40 and have decided to abandoned it for something better. It’s heartless, but that’s life.

I purchased the D40 in March of 2008 after I came back from a trip to Spain and France. I looked at the grainy pictures from my little Canon POS and decided that “Point and Shoot” really meant “Piece of Shit.”

Being a frugal bastard, I bought the cheapest SLR with the best quality.

In the last three years, D40 and I have seen a lot together. We’ve been to a handful of different countries and have snapped nearly 48,000 third world-class photos. That works out to about 44 photos a day. That’s almost 100 photos a day!

I raise this batch of miscellaneous photos in toast.


The Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park might as well be Utopia on a sunny weekend afternoon.

My new workplace. I started a full-time job last week at a small place downtown.

Golden Gate Bridge in the fog.

A whale spouts water in the bay. I didn’t know whales came into the bay. Hopefully a boat won’t ram it.

The Transamerica Tower.

The new camera might bring changes to this blog too such as fewer photos per post but higher quality. I’m also considering transitioning to less of a life blog and more to themed posts. Now that I have a full-time job again, I’ll have to see what time allows.

Now when will my new camera arrive?
