coolest gift ever, part 2

Kris gave me my wedding gift last night, and it's the Coolest Gift Ever, Part 2! It's a Nikon D70 digital SLR - i.e., the kind of thing I've always wanted but never thought I'd actually own. I love photography, but as a hobby it's only feasible if you use digital, or if you have a bazillion kajillion dollars to spend on film, developing and enlarging.

Well, she knew this, and apparently she was tired of waiting six months for me to develop a roll of film. Thus, her wedding present to me!

I've really only toyed with it so far, but here is a nice little picture of one of our kitties, Calliope:

It's a little blurry because there wasn't a whole lot of light (I also adjusted the white balance in Microsoft Photo Editor a little bit), but she's being cute, so here you go. Have another!
