Thought we need a photo thread as well.

So this is the very first photo I took with my new Canon EOS Rebel XSi, which I got today. So far I absolutely love the camera.

Gonna post some stuff from your new camera, DG? :)

Great photos, it's amazing how you can photograph the mundane and make it intriguing. I wish I had that kind of eye for photos.

Thanks, Spider.

I know I'm probably taking up half the available space on the internet for my photos recently, but I'm quite excited to be using my new camera. So here's another:

Hope you don't mind.

Not any stunning subject matter, but I thought the colours looked really nice.

Got a new lens (Nikon 50mm f2.8) and a flash for xmas. I've been experimenting with them a bit, and here are a few that came out pretty good. You can see more on my flickr if you're interested. But they're mostly people so they tend to make for less glamorous shots.

tx... PICTUREKA! I got that for the kids. It's a hoot. Also, is that a breast or a butt on the right edge?

Alligator... WTF? You don't call, you don't write. You just show up in SD, snap a pic and bolt?

The Paris subway is pretty cool, Alligator.

Cool factory in the north side of my town. It's actually pretty large although the panorama photo doesn't make it appear so.

I think this photo of Hamilton's icy harbour is much better viewed on black, so here's a link to it.

Perhaps I am being immature, or am not enough of a marketing expert, but I can't help but think that this isn't really a good brand name for a cookie:

Repo: that one with the squiggly fireworks is just awesome!
Ash#: I like the one with the smooth streaks of light, nice effect. And your second last one looks like a dandelion.
Cool stuff guys.

Just a few here from my trip to Italy. I have more posted on flickr and I have more to come for sure. I've just recently started sorting through some of my 3600 photos from the trip.

Click the image to open in full size.

In La stazione ferroviaria di Santa Maria Novella. The train station in Florence where we stayed for most of the trip. We were there at 6:30 am to catch a fast train to Rome.

Click the image to open in full size.

Spiraly stairs in the Vatican in Rome.

Click the image to open in full size.

Staircase in Venice which I particularly liked with the morning-afternoon sun hitting it. It is very beachy to me which makes sense because it is also a 20 second walk from the beach.

Click the image to open in full size.

The last one is straight out of camera except for cropping. The photo was taken from a bridge that crosses L'Arno, the river running through Florence.

I got plenty of other shots that seem to show more of what Italy is like but I think that everybody who goes there gets those shots and so I tried to pick out ones that were a little different.

And tomorrow I go to the east coast of Canada so I will be back in 10 days with more photos. :) Unless I fall off one of the many cliffs. Then don't expect photos so much.

Pretty nifty. You can try and figure out what happened by looking at the streaks.

Took this photo in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia during my trip to east coast Canada. Lovely place.

I went to a field full of sunflowers and they all looked very wilted and sad. So I picked the seeds out to make a sad face and used a flash with a relatively long shutter speed.

Another from my trip to Italy. Taken early morning on my way to the train station.

Taken in venice. I liked the gold colours complimented by the very convenient placement of coincidental blues.

I was driving on a seldom used highway through the California hills in the late afternoon when the light was hitting the hills in such a way that I just had to stop and take a picture. Scenes like this are one of the things I really love about this state.

I feel bad saying something about Twiggy's and ignoring h2Ogate's, so let me say this about h2Ogate's... very purty and I hope you didn't toss an incendiary device into the grass like so many Californians would.

Twiggy. That sunflower pic is too cool. So very clever plus the color and light makes it look like dolls. Now go get famous for something other than the human skin sombreros you keep in your crawl space.*

Awesome... What was your shutter speed, aperture and iso settings... do you remember? I assume you were using a tripod.
