366 of Me: Day 1

Happy New Year! Today is the first day of my 366 of Me year long photo project where ever day this year I will post a photo of something I own.  It will be an odd and bizarre look into my life, or just a collection of 366 random photos of stuff.  You decide.

I thought I’d start this project by showing you my camera which will be taking most, if not all, of the pictures this year. Years ago we bought a Canon Rebel camera at a local electronics store that was going out of business.  The salesman tried to get me to buy some expensive little palm size piece of crap.  I scoffed at him because I have always liked a big hefty camera that required two hands.

Two years ago I bought this 10X Nikon Coolpix online.  It was for our vacation trip to New Orleans, where I didn’t want to walk around with a big camera hanging from my neck. I needed something that could take good quality photos and fit in my pocket.  The camera does just that, being top of the line at the time, despite the fact that it has none of the cool web features shown in the commercials with the camera models Ashton Kutcher plays around with.

Oh well…it’s still a great camera and we use it all the time.
