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?

Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth and girded me with gladness....Psalm 10: 11

A hibiscus happy to arrive...
Turns its circumstance
While still alive...
Into a quick dance.
The plant blooms again
But only God knows when.
Poetry by me AJP

I am glad to see the Hibiscus blooming in mid winter next to the south window of our living room even though it doesn't last very long .I decided to photograph it from the underside as it reminds me of a ballerina skirt twirling around in a joyful dance

    Such grace in the long petals, it does remind one of a ballerina skirt. The lighting and tones are marvelous.

    It definitely does look like a ballerina skirt caught in the action of whirling about. What a pleasant gift to have this blooming in winter! Love your poem.
