Default Pete's try at a 365, Oh boy what have I done.

First off, I would like to say hi to everyone. Hi everyone......I have been checking the place out for a week or two. And, you guys and gals have got me wanting to try a 365. But have not posted my pics because well, there are some talented people on here. So, I started one and have been just keeping up with the photos on another board. I will catch them up here in my first post and then just do 1 day at a time.

I have had a camera for a year or two. Take the ocassional flower photo or Christmas photo. Nothing serious. But now, I am wanting to learn all I can. I have been bitten by the photo bug. I am looking into a new body. The one I have now is a Canon 10D with the kit lens. Just purchased a 70-200L. So, I am on my way now. I will take this oppertunity to shoot, and , try new things while learning (I hope). Please critique all you want.

I will also be putting a "P & A Photos" on my pics just for other threads a safety. I do not have a business nor a pro. Just learning.

Following are photos from my first 7 days.


Just to get it started. Something quick and I know, cheezy.
Day 1


Day 2
A few Christmas lights from the small town I live in




Day 3 was the arrival of the new lens




Day 4 Set this up on the tripod. What a difference 5-10 minutes can make on a sunrise


Day 5 A couple ducks at the local pond
Not another guy with a camera!!



Day 6
A try at black and white


Bad day at the office


Day 7 Back at the pond

Welcome, Pete. Looks like you are off to a great start. I love the diving duck with your caption.
Remember, it's just one day at a time.

Welcome to the 365. You are off to a great start. I am getting close to 100 days, it is hard sometimes, but I have learned a whole new way of looking at things. Great folks here, who soon seem like family.

Pretty good start

Day 1 is always full of trepidation.

Another B&W from the trip to the library.



And, a little frog friend I found. Light was hitting it just right.
