My New Nikon

By Chiqui Raveloski

I was never the writer. I took the pictures. Taking photographs has always made me felt adventurous, artistic, connected. I used to take plenty of pictures especially when our daughter was growing up. Capturing that special moment in a photograph gave me a sense that time had stopped and I just want to stay there.

But then, life happened and the camera was put to the side. The artistic endeavour was diverted into the art of nursing. Creativity took on a different side, while my mind and heart stayed connected to things I love.

As the signs of spring peeking everywhere, (here in my part of the South), I cannot help but think about new beginning, flowers blooming, and birds chirping. I also had a strong yearning to take photographs of this wonderful and constructive season. I had mentioned to my Hubby that I wanted a new camera and to my surprise, a box was waiting for me to open when I came home from work one evening.

Yes, it was the camera I have been wanting, sitting inside a gift wrapped box by the dining table. It is a Nikon Coolpix P510 . The camera has so many features. System overload. So, I decided to just take random pictures using easy settings for the meantime. Here’s a few of what I have taken so far.

What are you looking at?

Here I am in my Ninja mode!

Do you smell that ?

I'm "peeling" beautiful !

C'mon spring!

I work at that hospital.

Well, there you are ! I had fun doing this. I'm looking forward to learning more about the camera and posting more photographs in the near future.

 Until next time!
