New Camera

Christmas is over.  (Sigh of relief)  Work’s been crazy, but we made it through.  As a present to myself I got a Nikon 7000 along with two cool lenses, an 18-140mm VR lans and a Sigma 10-20mm.  I took it up Rocky Butte in the evening, and also got some inside shots of the Robinsons’ Christmas decor.
