This journal documents my experiences with a Canon 50D, my first DSLR camera, purchased on Oct. 16, 2008. The camera was end-of-lined by Canon in July 2010 and the 60D was announced.

Look closely at the photo and see if you can spot the following:

  1. the Flatiron building
  2. the spire of St. James' Cathedral
  3. an exact copy of the photo contained within the photo itself.

I did a lot of spot healing on the photo to remove the water stains on the chrome. I also boosted the shadows in a few places

I noticed this Amish family waiting for their train as I was going to catch my tain home. I took the first photo concentrating on the young boy (the woman at the bottom right was helping them find their track) and chimping at the photo, I took a second photo further down which didn't cut-off any heads.

When I got home I noticed that in the first photo, the woman on the left was holding a baby-- I regretted not doing a pano to show the entire family.

I did not take this photograph, but my camera did.
