Remembering My Mom


1977 at Jensen Beach, Florida.

Just before I deployed to Japan on the USS Midway (CV-41) for 3 years.

Love you!

Nikon D3100 – DSLR

We haven’t owned a Nikon since 1971 – and that was a Nikonos II. This pretty Nikon came to our collection as a gift from one of our son’s friends. We tried to pay him something for it but he said he was fine with giving it away since he didn’t like it and was too busy to learn how to use it. It’s now Carol’s camera since she only shoots with her Galaxy S4 most of the times we’re out and about. We told our son’s friend that he can have it back at any time if he changes his mind… so with that we have a D3100 in the family.

Here’s some images of it – the red is amazing and the fit and finish of the camera is extraordinary. We’ll share images as soon as we can. If you would like to know more about the camera you can visit Nikon’s site.








In the few test shots we’ve taken we’ve been impressed with the quality of the images. I don’t see us becoming Nikon photographers but the camera deserves a chance to see what it can do. We actually do not own a DSLR! We’ve been happy with our Sony Cyber-shot and Fujifilm FinePix S9900W and of course our stable full of film cameras in 35mm, 6x6cm and 6x9cm formats.

If anyone knows how to pull up the shutter clicks (count) we’d like to know.

We do love the red!

Camera: Fujifilm FinePix S9900W

Thanks for looking!
