New Self 1 - Mega Chip

I don't normally comment my self-portraits, but the next three need a little explanation. After my latest debacle, including a mugging and another camera grabbed, this is the very first pic taken on my new beast, a Nikon D200 with a... wait for it... Nikon DX AF-S Nikkor 18-200mm 1:3.5-5.6 G ED VR... lens! Doncha just luurrrvvv jargon?! Suffice it to say it's rather tasty and I promise I won't mention it again... you all already know I believe the picture is made in the eye and not the camera, don't you..?

Well anyway, I thought it would be funny to take my first pic (my first three in fact) for my 'Self' series with my favourite First Lady of Paris looking over me, never mind the camera settings. So I literally didn't do anything, didn't read anything, turned the camera on, put it on the 'P' setting, pointed it the lens to the sky (you can tell, can't you!) and snapped. This shot and two to follow are the result. Much much more coming from my and Nikki over the next few months and hopefully years!
