You…are my first love

Hi everyone, hope life has been treating you all nicely. 🙂

Speaking of life, falling in love is a normal process, but falling in love for the first time is the one that you will remember the most. Even when it ends in a tragic way…that first love will be the one that rest close to your heart…(so if you want to laugh right now, I would understand 😀 ). Anyway, this is the story of my first love…in digital photography.

A few years back when my affair with digital photography was blooming,  I decide to get a Nikon D60. As usual, my choice it is not because I prefer this brand or series but purely because it was the only camera that I can afford to buy after a few months of carefull spending on my monthly income during that time. It took a while but I managed finally.

Anyway my 1st date with my D60 made me fell in love with photography and taught me a lot not only in understanding photography but also about life itself. So tonight, as a celebration to my profession and to honor my D60 service… here are some of my captures using my Nikon D60.. my first love in digital photography.

She made me work on high altitude to cover an international event - The winner of TM 22nd Mount Kinabalu International Climbathon 2008 - Men Open Race, Spaniard Agusti Roc Amador reach the Low’s Peak (highest check-point) at 8.37 am approximately 1hour 37 minute from starting point ahead of other 133 runners. - by Lano Lan on Nikon D60

I had dates with her all the time. This is my early morning date with the Nikon D60 capturing the majestic Mount Kinabalu before sunrise near Guakon

She was there, helping me capturing this misty morning near Kiulu. My dearest D60, we make a good couple.

-Marudu Bay by Lano Lan - My D60 and I are like the Sunset and the loyal beach, she never let me down. Not once.

She witness everything that I see. - by Lano Lan on Nikon D60

My loyal friend, the best traveling companion I always enjoy to be with - Kota Belud Sabah - by Lano Lan on Nikon D60

Maybe I will not be able to take you out on a date again, but the memory, the lesson…will always remain in my heart and motivate me in the future. One thing I am sure of, you are the begining of my journey into meeting a lot of wonderful people out there including you who just finish reading my mumbling 🙂 .
