The Arrival of My Precious

My Precious! My ... Preciousssss!!
Awesome news! My precious Sony Alpha α55 arrived today! Ooooohh! Aaaaahh!
I’m SO excited! As I have mentioned previously, this is the first time in 25 years that I've owned an SLR, ever since I sold my Pentax Spotmatic F in 1986, after having owned it for 10 years. It feels like I’m coming back home!
Well, there’s not much I can say about my α55 yet — I've not had a chance to use it! I’m really looking forward to taking it out on some hikes, but March is still winter in Oregon, and I expect a couple more months of rain and general sogginess.
So for now, my Precious will pretty much sit on the shelf as I wait, wait, wait for Oregon’s weather to take a turn for the better. Until then, I can at least sit here and admire it, my Preciousssss! Or, I could always loan it to Gollum — I hear it doesn’t rain that much in Mordor!
