I got a Nikon camera
I love to take a photograph
So Mama, don't take my Kodachrome away

Thanks to Steph at Crafting in the Rain I figured out rather quickly what new camera I wanted to buy. I’d been thinking about getting a dslr, but the Nikon CoolPix P510 seemed to be a great compromise for my needs – as Steph said, “I mostly want to take better blog pictures and better pictures of the kids.” With my previous camera, the picture above wouldn’t have come out at all, it would have been completely blurry. Obviously it is still a bit blurry and I have to learn how to take pictures while my subjects are moving, but this is already a big improvement!

As for the story behind the picture – Simon put on my shoes and said “I’m going gym!”
