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?

Since I am currently unemployed, my "daily commute" is basically from the front door (or garage door) to the mailbox and back! The scene shown here is one of the two paths that I take.

    Beautiful entry! Donald, I think you and I had the same idea for the theme...The entry that I chose for along "my commute" was shot on the way back from our long walk to the mail box which is at the end of our driveway on our country road.

    Holy God in Heaven!!!! My goodness, Don....if I had to walk this path to get my mail I don't think I'd ever come in the house. What a majestic and grand yard, flowers, neighborhood, and view you have....and the greatest part of it all is that you are still such a kind and humble person! Bravo to a magnificant photo!!!!
