Hey ya'll. Just got my first DSLR in a barter. I did a mural for it. Though this 350D is my first DSLR it's not my first SLR, I got my first one when I was 11, a Pentax (can't recall which kind) and have had LOTS since. When I was about 21-22 I had my Nikon FG (that I spent an entire summer to buy, along with my Bogen tripod) stolen and it broke my poor lil' heart, I gave up photography then, but I did keep the Bogen. Since having children (first one three years ago) I have started shooting again, first with an old EasyShare C330, and the bug bit me again, I said "hello old friend", and thanked him! Feels great to be back behind the VF!
