Playing with new camera and lens
« on: July 01, 2009, 11:50:51 PM »
I bought a new camera about a year ago, and haven't used it much because I wanted a zoom lens for it. I'm just starting to learn how to use it, and it's not as easy as my little trusty Fuji Finepix. ;)

Well, I tried to use imageshack, but I guess I didn't do it right, so I'll link another page.

where are the pics????   :evil:

i have a little Nikon that i love.  it fits in my pocket and i almost always have it.  it just doesn't take the quality pics that a couple of our other cameras take. 
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Oops- I didn't realize we were restricted to bee photos only. ;)

Hey John, we can both share the title cause it happened to me on here! Can't recall who it was, but I thought a dude on here was a she. He was a good sport about it, we had a good laugh. Was just teasing you, been there! :shock: :-D ;)
