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.

Welcome to the forum! Don't worry about how good anyone else is. We all just do our own thing and day by day we improve.

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.
