MY HERO!

Faded blue denim is the new shining armor.  Dickidoo is my hero.  He bought a new camera.  No, not for me.  I think he has always been jealous of my Nikon so when my camera died, he bought one for himself because he is just as lost without a camera as I am.  But in true male ego fashion, it had to be bigger and better than mine was.  He got a Nikon D80.  What is a Nikon D80?  Well, besides being 10x better than my Nikon D70, its probably the most incredible camera I have ever had the pleasure of holding.

It wasn't easy, but Dickidoo has agreed to share.

But that is not what makes his jeans a symbol of heroism in my eyes.

Three years ago when he bought me my Nikon he spent an extra $ and bought an extended warranty for my Nikon.  Woo hoo!  We will take the camera back to the store we bought it at on Wednesday.  Hopefully they will be able to do the repairs.  Hopefully it will be covered by the warranty.  If not, Dickidoo is sharing his new toy until I can afford one of my own.

And check it out, I finally got a decent picture of a sunflower!

I love Dickidoo's Nikon D80.

Maybe they'll let me trade my dead D70 in for an upgrade.

What a nice thing for your hubby to do. I hope they do fix yours too. You should do something special for that man of yours, what being a hero and all..lol. That's a great shot of the flower. Does that have a fast shutter speed? My Joe wants a camera that will take closeups but also catch birds in flight too. He has a good digitial its a 6 mega whatever. (you can I know alot-not). Love, Sandi

My husband's camera is bigger, better, has more bells & whistles than mine, too!  Hmmm, maybe thats a man thing!  Hope your cam can be repaired or upgraded...hey, maybe you can get a D11!!
