Once upon a time, one year ago, I took the above photo. It was a sunny day, believe it or not, and I remember being pleased (somewhat) with the photo. I want to say that I had a love/hate relationship with my Canon Power Shot A430 (big name for a little point and shoot). You all cheered me on and, I am thankful for the photos I could get with it (but was never totally happy with them).
Oh yeah! It was even raining at the moment I took these shots!
I was having a blast getting the first shots with the Canon Rebel with 250mm lens - I couldn't get the flash card into the computer fast enough!
I LOVE IT! ! ! WOW! These pictures are only cropped - no other editing - I am absolutely thrilled! So, now begins the fun!
ps. Just thought you would like to know, that based on my success last quarter, which you all were a part of (official grade - 4.0 in Eng.101), I got brave and registered for two classes this quarter - Art101 and Psychology101 - both online. Thank you all for cheering me on! Boy! I just thought, it is it going to be difficult to focus on studies with this camera sitting on my desk! (no pun intended)
