Sometimes the mere notion of being “number two” can light a motivational fire under your keister. Look at some famous folks who, despite being considered numero dos, went on to dominate their respective fields and even eclipse their predecessors: A pupil of Socrates, Plato opted not to go the hemlock-chugging route and instead helped lay down the foundations of Western philosophy. Tom Brady was destined to be a career second banana until Drew Bledsoe’s internal bleeding set him on the path to three Super Bowl wins. Jean-Luc Picard played second fiddle to Kirk only to become the greatest captain in Star Trek. Ever. (Watch TNG‘s season 3 finale if you don’t believe me.) And in the world of DSLR cameras, Nikon has been toiling to one day escape from the shadow of a certain photo-manufacturing giant whose name rhymes with “Danon.” And with its newest shooter it looks like that day may have finally come.
Additional photos taken with the D90 by Jackson Lynch [age unknown] and Lola Lynch [age 4]. See the D90 is so simple to use even a 4-year-old can handle it.
