Wading for photos

I commented yesterday about how I had only my little camera rather than my DSLR for the photo I took yesterday.  Why?  Because Julie was with me and she had the good DSLR, of course.  This photo shows Julie wading into the soft sand of the estuary for photos.

I now also have a good DSLR (a Nikon D90).  Why?   Because Julie got an even newer Nikon.  The little camera I used for yesterday's photo also used to be Julie's.  It became my camera when she moved up to the D90.

Now that you know the pecking order in our family, you can guess how I got the computer on which a posting this photo blog.  Yes, it used to be Julie's.  And the car I drive?  Used to be Julie's.  But with one exception, I am not complaining.

My complaint?  Julie's computer had a neon, hot pink case.  Once a little girl sitting next to me on an airplane commented "You need to get a boy computer."  I now have a second computer case.

This week we have photos of the elegant villas and gardens of the Borromean Islands in Lake Maggiore, Italy, posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

I love my D90! Not at all ready to move. Obviously, Julie is the shopper and you reap the benes! Good on you!

Too funny, Dave! Sounds about right. My husband gets to use the old cameras too.

I wish I had a Julie in my life to pass down great cameras to me. I'm stuck with my Canon Rebel for all eternity I think.

I laughed at the photo. I was wading in a country club pool up to my ankles for a photo shoot last week. Considering that it feels like full blown summer here already, the water was cold!
