Time, Tools, and Tomatoes

There’s an old saying that “only a poor craftsman blames his tools”. And it’s true. That said, having decent tools absolutely matters. Case in point: these two photos of roasted tomatoes.

The D40 and a decent lens have absolutely helped me take better photos. I know I’m at best an enthusiastic amateur with a minimal grasp of what I’m doing, but at least now I can say a little more of what I want to say with my camera.
