A Long Overdue Explanation . . .

 This picture is VERY important.

Oh, it's just the last picture I took before my camera got up close and personal with the concrete sidewalk ... Yeah... In my defense, it was a VERY cold day out. And I was putting on my gloves. And cold hands just don't respond very quick. And I was already bending down and it only dropped about a foot...Unfortunately though, while I was optimistic that no damage had been done (I have, erm, *experience* in dropping cameras it seems...) I couldn't help but notice that when I tried to take a picture the next minute, my viewfinder was all blurry. . . and the auto focus motor just kept spinning in and out . . . and when it finally did take the picture, it focused on somewhere entirely different than I'd planned!

I tried using Manual focus and that worked fine . . .

But manual focus is a little slow when you're photographing moving subjects . . .

So, I begrudgingly had to accept reality and send My Precious off to Nikon's repair center, where it stayed for a long month. Then Christmas and cooking and family coming in happened, and I just did't get back into the swing of posting my pictures once my camera came back! That being said- I have a LOT of pictures to share from the last three+ months! :D

Meanwhile, enjoy these pictures that were taken *before* my camera dropped. ;)
