Well I finally got an upgrade. It's not a DSLR like I would have really liked to have gotten, but it's really nice, and a hell of a lot cheaper.
And more than enough for me at this point in my life. It's a Canon PowerShot SX10 IS. I'm still getting the hang of all the lovely features. So hopefully by the time I head back down the coast, I'll be able to really take some nice shots.
So the idea is that now that I have a decent camera, I'll start taking more decent pictures, worthy of being posted here. That's the idea anyway.
