About two weeks ago I bought a camera on eBay to bring to Japan with me, and it came yesterday! Its a Nikon D40 and I’m currently shooting it with a 28-90mm zoom lens that also has a macro feature for up close photos. I’m fairly new to photography, but learning quickly. I took a 4 hour “photo walk” around my home town of Portland today (which included several stops for coffee and lunch) and these are some of my better photos.
Saw this dog outside of Little Big Burger in the Pearl District
Entrance to the famous Powell’s Books. I love all the action going on.
I was surprised at how well the D40 picks up colors i.e the yellow on the front of the streetcar!
Shoots black and white extremely well too.
Taking advantage of the macro feature on my lens here.
The early morning light at the beginning of my walk was ideal.
I stopped off at Washington Park for some nature pictures.
The lines in this photo really draw your eyes around, and I love the contrasting blues.
Thanks for stopping by today!
