Three Cameras

Ode to my Nikon

Oh Nikon,
You are attached to me always,
help me watch my world,
record my world,
catch my world
see my world,
touch my world,
love my world,
remember my world.

Oh Nikon,
You, dressed in shiny black,
most days lurk in my backpack,
waiting to pounce,
awaiting a stack of sea rocks,
two colored, brick-laced doors,
a blue sheet of tinted ice,
a red birdhouse layered in frozen water,
a lonely tree stranded in snow.

Oh Nikon,
Today, quite expensive,
a long way from that silver number,
sent from Germany,
photographing friends,
sitting on the Nelson’s porch,
who would have thought that,
it would come to this,
a daily photo blog,
with my trusty friend.


  1. Nice! And you cobblestones look SO sharp!

  2. We're fans of Nikon too!
    God bless you!

  3. Woaw ! I only have a small canon, as big as my hand...:o)

  4. Oh Nikon
    in my hand
    where you belong.

    I too have a Nikon--my pal.

    Love the look of the cobblestones. Stand wood has two roads left in cobblestones. One in East Stanwood and one in west. Bumpty bump.

  5. i love it! what great memories you saved with those 3!

  6. Your ode is great. I am the happy owner of a Hasselblad 500CM and a Leica M eqipment both a gift from my grandfather. Started photographing with a small Leica when I was 10 ..15 years ago. No experience with Nikon but your pics show that your cameras are ok.

  7. You've composed a wonderful tribute to your trusted friend.

  8. I guess you really like the Nikon? Some say that it is not the camera but the individual behind whatever kind of camera you might have. What do you think?

    1. Gotta agree with you on that one. When you're behind the camera you are at the controls.

  9. Let me get this like Nikon. I like the tribute so I just inserted Canon in the Nikon's place. Actually, if you don't mind I would like to share your prose with the photo club I belong to. The Nikon people will really like it.

  10. Nice. I've been a Nikon man for many years. In fact, I have many old film cameras for sale, like a very nice F4s.

  11. I never had a Nikon, but who knows...

  12. Lovely ode to Nikon, a wonderful tool to reproduce what one sees. It's my camera also.

  13. I confess that I am a Canon girl, but any camera deserves an ode, does it not?! They are such instruments of creativity.

  14. Sounds like a true passion of yours! -- barbara

  15. Let's see if I follow this . . . you like Nikons, right?

    My theory is that the Patriots were abducted and aliens wore their uniforms today.

  16. Love the ode to Nikon and the glorious pics it/they take.

  17. Wow nice cameras with great pictures.looking awesome Really great information about cams and you have shared each point is very clearly..thanks! spy cameras for sale

  18. You are a man of many talents and continue to write visual odes with your trusty Nikons.
