After my south India trip, my interest in photography was renewed and since then I'd been thinking about buying a good camera - no, not the ones which have insane megapixel number and an atrocious optical zoom number - what was on my mind was a DSLR.
After consulting with photo-geek friends, doing quite an amount of research myself, I went ahead and bought a Nikon D40. I'm sure there will be some photography buffs out there who would not think that this was the best camera - but I like it and I love the pictures it produces! There's still a lot to learn, lot to experiment and lot of photos to click.
Wishing for an enjoyable time doing all of the above :)
