A couple weeks ago, I splurged and bought a new camera - a Canon Rebel XT. It has mostly been in it's case since I bought it, because I have been a bit overwhelmed with all it's features and I didn't want to break my new camera because I didn't know what I was doing. Today I got brave and took it out to the backyard to "play" with it. It was fun, and I didn't break it.
Here are some of the pictures I took. I am still just using the auto settings, but the camera is very fast and the pictures turned out OK.
