  1. Where has the joy gone?

    I have been here for a few years now. In fact, I think that I was among the first to join. In this past year, Nikonites has gotten far more serious and quite frankly, I don't feel as welcome as I once felt.

    My favorite gifts to give are things that are unique to me. This year, I have started to pick out my absolute favorite photos I have taken during this year
