I got my new digital SLR today. UPS came at about 10:30 in the morning and nobody answered the door. I was at work, Paul never hears knocking. I guess he didn't pay attention to the truck out there either. So they left me a form. I called the number on the phone, which turned out to be an unhelpful move. So I went to my local UPS office,which, fortunately, is way close. I could walk there in about ten minutes. Only I didn't because my legs hurt. I found out that yes, I could come back later to pick it up. Which I did.

It is almost overwhelming. It's a beautiful instrument. I put its new lens on, popped in the compact flash card, slid in the battery, and fired off some shots. It felt almost like that, like firing. This puppy is fast. So many things to learn, though. I went through part of the little manual, learned how to set some things, but I'm realizing there are so many decisions to make. I have to take some breaths and come back at it.I figure on taking my baby with me to highway 166 tomorrow afternoon. See what I can do.
