Midweek Ramblings- Viagra Cocktail, Chorizo de abulón, Fruit Salad and more

I have been shooting food pics with point-and-shoot cameras for years now and decided to take my hobby to the next level with a Digital SLR. Yes I took the plunge and bought myself a Nikon D40.

My Camera ! Yeah

I'm experiencing a learning curve but I hope to improve the quality of the images on my blog. One thing I'm adjusting to is the size difference. Trust me its not easy breaking out a D40 at a taco stand in Tijuana and clicking away.

I will still be using some archived images from my old camera, but you should gradually see a difference in picture quality. I have been using the camera for a few days now and here are some of the highlights.

Speaking of San Diego......
Lately I have tossed the idea around on including San Diegos Mex food scene on this site. I'm leaning towards including San Diego, I just don't know when and how. What are my issues on the decision? I have been active on San Diego food based Message Boards and Review Sites for a few years now, and I just don't feel comfortable using a copy and paste method of my past contributions. I would like to highlight the places I frequented in the past and also bring in a fresh new perspective.
