After five years my Nikon CoolPix has finally called it quits. I've wanted a digital slr for a long while but put it off many times. Most of my photos from the past year were taken with a GL2 which is not bad for a video camera. Thanks to the GL2 zoom I've been able to get some decent bird photos. Still, it's a video camera and it shows. All this to say that I finally bought a dslr (a Canon Rebel XT and it rocks.) First slr I've had in 13 years and I'm remembering how much better it is to have complete control. So, here's one of my first photos.
I should have a zoom lens at my front door tomorrow... much better for bird and critter photos!
