I have, after many years of lusting after one, finally got myself a Nikon D7000. My battered old D40 is being retired. (Translated for those who are not photo geeks, it means that I have swapped a goodish camera for a greatish one.) I have not had a chance yet properly to use the D7000. But I have managed to trawl through my old D40 catalogues, a treasurehouse of memories, and picked out some of my favourite photos.
