So, I am looking to get a real camera within the next 6 months (hopefully). I have a good Nikon that got me through all of my photography classes -- but it is a film camera. Although I love film, I am lacking a darkroom. Two years ago I got a Canon PowerShot A530. All of the images on this blog have come from that camera - it does a nice job I think. I'm just growing out of it. I want a REAL digital camera -- with a couple good lenses. Actually, I'd really love one of those medium format cameras with the option of film, digital or polaroid backs -- but now I'm dreaming. So, any of my photo-taking readers have any suggestions for a good camera? How about a good photo lab that will still process my black and white film or my medium format color film (shot with my Holga)? I have a pile of film that needs to be developed by can't find a place around here that can do it. I'll have to mail it somewhere I guess.

Aunt Mary gave me a beautiful dahlia out of the garden last night. She was cutting them all because it was supposed to frost over last night. I don't know if it actually did or not. I got to sleep in 'til 6:30 AM today. May not seem like much but it sure felt good. I had to work a couple of hours today even though it is my day off. After that I went to my chiropractor, then the laundromat, got an oil change for my car and went to the grocery store (phew!). I'm home again and took a few photos of my dahlia. I will have to explore the macro setting on my little point and shoot more in the future. My first try with it didn't work out right - I had focusing issues. This time it worked. I like the results.
