pictures taken with a swanky, swanky camera

First of all, a word about the camera that took these (for all you camera nerds out there who know what I'm talking about and/or care): these were taken with a Nikon D5100, which is a way nicer camera than I will probably ever own, even if I do end up with an SLR for Christmas one of these years. They were all taken in RAW with just the kit lens, and I played around with them a little in Adobe Bridge before putting them on my computer. They aren't amazingly good, but I think they're much better than what I usually take with my Canon PowerShot G5. Let me know what you think!

Now, before you start griping (because I know you're like that) ;-) about how dark this one is, keep in mind that I wouldn't have even bothered trying with my Canon. Taking pictures in my living room without a flash or lots of blur requires an ISO of at least 1000. And even then, we had to do quite a bit of lightening work in Bridge.

You can't imagine how excited I am to get decent pictures in my living room!

Well hello there my bold, brash toddler. Ready to take on the world, are we?

Oh, Nikon. Never, ever leave me.
