Fifty years ago I was a senior in high school in Dallas, Texas. Working in the darkroom of a small family newspaper I was shooting a Kodak Retina Reflex, 35mm. I had two bodies and three lenses, a light meter and a big graphic arts camera. Was unstopable. I was wide eyed, hiding from the war, I had heard the shots in Dealy Plaza. Didn't know squat, some things never change. 2015 is here, never thought I would live this long. Am working on new pic's of the Gulf Coast, Texas to Key West. MJB

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?
