Katie Rose in the Sandbox

Katie Rose in the Sandbox

I took the kids out to the playground today, and shot some photos with my new “toy” camera. It’s a Nikon Coolpix P7000, and I’m kind of impressed. This one was a straight JPEG capture, cropped a little but otherwise no manipulation or post-processing.

The P7000 reminds me in look-and-feel of one of the old Nikon rangefinders, or maybe even an old film Leica. In other words, it is actually an elegant camera. In any case, it’s certainly more fun to carry around when I’m also wrangling the kids than my full kit gear with tripod and all.

Here’s Katie Rose from her early days.
