No. 1: Canon Rebel XT

About this time last year, I purchased a digital camera. I decided on a Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) made by Canon. It captures images at eight megapixels. It has been a wonderful investment and I have been having a great deal of fun with it. Here's one of the first pictures I took:
If you look very closely, you can see the bottle of DAWN dishwashing liquid reflected in the tiny drop beneath the drip. The photo was taken at my kitchen sink and I was absolutely amazed at the clarity. Click on the image to see the enlargement.

I wanted an SLR camera so I could control the settings and add different types of lenses over time. I'm still learning the basics and I'm having a ball.

The other photo I am publishing today is one I took in my garden on April 27th of 2005. It's a close-up of two flowers. Even though I planted them as bulbs, I can't remember what kind they are. Can anyone help me identify them?

Aren't they pretty? Click to enlarge. More to come soon!


  • You will notice that the drop is rather flat on top. When scuba diving, the bubbles that float up to the surface are flat on the bottom. FLAT. they are basically half spheres. Interesting phenomenon, eh?

  • I am looking for a camera to take pictures at my daughter's sporting events. I found this on craigslist. Is this the same camera you have? Your photos are beautiful. I love the dawn one. Also, are you using the same lens? Thanks in advance.
