Nikon or Canon?

Ok so the age old question Nikon or Canon?? It is almost like picking your political party, Republican or Democrat. I guess that would make Sony the Independent party... No one agrees and the arguments go on forever, but I don't care! I need to pick one so I want to hear some opinions. I have a Nikon right now (D40) which I like just fine but I would really like to get a more professional camera. My predicament is a lot of the photographers I admire use Canons, which I know doesn't mean much cause it's all about the operator, but still you know what I mean. On the other hand Nikon seems to have a more clear focused picture while the Canons seem to get a little grainy. Is this just me?? I don't know. Tell me what you think...

Want It: My Dream Boots

So I have been trying to find the perfect pair of boots foreverrrr. I have a vintage pair I got off Ebay that I love but they are falling apart because I wear them so much. Because I live in boots I have decided that it is time to suck it up and by an expensive high quality pair that will last. I love Frye boots and know they have a great reputation and will last me. The only problem is a lot of their boots are more western than I like. Don't get me wrong I love cowboy boots, but I already have two pairs of those, I want a more classic riding boot. Soooo when I found these I fell in love!! The only problem is the price tag! I don't really want to go more than $300. So hopefully these will go on sale (yeah right!) or I will break down and buy them one day...

My Favorite Flickr

I found Joy Newell's Flickr when I was about 18. I actually found her myspace first, yessss way back when Myspace was cool. I thought her photos were beautiful and loved how clear yet vintage they felt. I was shocked when I found out she was only 14. She is much older now but even back then her photographic capabilities where way beyond her years. She is also a very sweet girl. My little sister has emailed her questions about photography and cameras and she always gets back to her and truly tries to help her out. I think it is great that such a talented girl has stayed grounded in herself and even her faith. She is sure to go far and I can't wait to see what she will come up with next!! Here are some of her photos...

And today I leave you with my favorite Radiohead song and most amazing video ever...
