has been a member since May 2007 and goes by arcatera.

My aim, when I take a picture, is to capture the romance and beauty in seemingly mundane things - an old bicycle rusting in the rain, a discarded umbrella blown inside out from a storm, the face of an old man reading the morning paper on the subway. There is so much missed beauty around us, unseen in our rush to get "somewhere". I want to capture the essence of these unseen things, in the hope that the images will inspire people to appreciate the simple things once more.

Q: My sister in-law recently gave me a Canon EOS 10D digital camera body. Having only used point and shoot cameras, what would be a good beginners lens to get for this camera? Should I get kit lens to start with?

A: Do you know?
