We just bought a new Nikon D40 camera for our family and Ryan's business. I've been having a bit of fun with it and found out I like taking close up and macro shots. I use Jasic Paint Shop Pro 9 to edit them. Like I''ve said before, I've never had lessons or classes and I just take pictures of things I think are pretty, symbolic, artistic, colorful or important to me or others. I hope you enjoy these first pictures as much as I had fun taking them!
