Uncle Roger's Notebooks of Daily Life
My life is, to me, ripe with frequent challenges, occasional successes, spontaneous laughter, adequate tears, and enough *life* to last me a lifetime. To you, however, it surely seems most pedestrian. And therefore, I recycle the name I used previously and call this my Notebooks of Daily Life. Daily, because it's everyday in nature, ordinary. These conglomeration of events that are my life are of interest to me because I live it, perhaps mildly so to those who are touched by it, and could only be of perverse, morbid curiosity to anyone else. Yet, I offer them here nonetheless. Make of them what you will, and perhaps you can learn from my mistakes.

One of my recent entries generated some heated commentary (both on- and offline). In doing some research on the subject, I came across an excellent guide to photographer's rights prepared by a lawyer who is also a photographer (among other things).
Bert P. Krages has also written a Legal Handbook for photographers if you are interested in even more info. If you are interested in photography at all, I strongly recommend reading the guide at the very least, just to be aware of your rights.
And, while I'm on the subject, I'll offer another suggestion for your reading list, a Tale of Two Cameras. It's a guide to choosing between a digital SLR and a digital point-and-shoot. After reading it, I'm torn between lusting after the new Coolpix 8800 (I am currently using the (relatively) older 5700) and the new D2X Digital SLR. I'll also mention that before choosing, one ought to play around with the SimCam first.
Last minute additions: Weblogs, Inc. has a Digital Photography weblog which pointed me to ByThom which has a lot of info about Nikon cameras. Oh, and if you're thinking about getting a digital camera, check out Steve's Digicams and Digital Photography Review for reviews, specs, and news of digital cameras.
