Armed with a Nikon

A year go, we bought ourselves a Nikon D5000, as nice of a camera as we’ll likely ever own.

A month ago, we bought a new lens for it, “new” meaning “new to us”.  We bought it from our friend “Photographer Cody”, who had upgraded.  Our new lens is 18-200mm, and it looks fairly long when you’ve got it zoomed in.

I asked a co-traveler to photograph me at a site recently.  She zoomed in tight on me, lengthening the lens to its extreme.  One of our resident “funny men” exclaimed, “That’s not a camera; it’s a cannon.”

Without even missing a beat, she replied, “It’s not a Canon; it’s a Nikon.”

Clever and quick people make me smile.
