I'm going to wait a day before taking my first photo's with this camera.
It is nasty rainy weather and is suppose to be nice outside tomorrow so I can go to the local park.
I'll just spend today studying the manual and getting familiar with the K10D.

What, no coffee cup picture!? That seems to always be one of my first pictures. Come to think of it, I think a good idea would be to make a point of that - then in 20 years I can look back and see how my poor 20 year old coffee cup has faded and had it's logo rubbed off, or else have a photographic record of the historical changes in coffee cup design. And I can see the improvements each camera has (or not). Well, it's an idea - all right, a dim one, but it's an idea.

Have fun tomorrow at the park!

Default First shots with the K10D

Okay, I couldn't wait another day. I went out in the dreary showery day and shot some photos.



The weather wasn't slowing down the honey bee's and Bumble Bee's.

Who needs nice weather with shots like these? Love the first one and the bees are good, too. I can see you won't have any trouble with the camera at all.

Couple more photo's of Mt Rainier on Ruston Drive in Tacoma, WA

I made a "Armature" boo boo. I had left the spot meter on when I shot the bee's, so I had to fix these in Photoshop.

I've made that same mistake more times than I care to remember. Try forgetting to switch from spot metering when shooting soccer sometime, with players that are wearing light shirts and black shorts...
