Note the placement of the feline roadblock, as well as an out-of-season feline toy. My revenge was pulling out the camera.
Then I remembered this finally bothered show up at Beach Jordan:
As my friend Cat would say, "ALOHA!" Check out the detail of that 28-135mm lens. It came with the 50D. All my photog friends are Canon freaks, so I had justification for staying the course with the brand -- of course, they use 5D's... I am not that practiced to own such a camera. Anyway, I've practicing my bracketing in program mode, but only for one focus point. (Guess I have another project this summer!) Still, I'm getting a much better sense of when to open up the exposure and when to stop it down.
Enough procrastinating -- back to work!
