This picture marks some sort of restart. Somehow I managed to get rid of all my digital cameras, and it doesn't even feel too bad. In a way, I like how slow everything got since then. (And I don't have to find excuses anymore why I didn't raw-process the pictures already.)


There also are a few things I don't like, of course. Sometimes, 36+ possible exposures on a film are a lot - something I would have never thought with an 8 GB memory card. Sometimes, not being able to switch to different ISO sensitivities is a pain in the ass, mostly because I'm not running around with the tripod all the time. And sometimes, the cameras are just awkward to use - especially with large hands like mine - and I really began to miss the autofocus, the two control wheels and the D-pad of the 'newer' Nikons. In the end, I got myself a used Nikon F100 and so far, I'm head over heels in love. I managed to look at the back a couple of times, waiting for a photo to appear, and sometimes I fall back in the habit of double pressing the shutter - which was always a good idea on the D300 - but I'll learn to live with that.


So here we go: New camera, new lenses, some unnecessarily bitchy films and a whole lot of new fun.

Note the happy face.
