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?

    Don ~ I chose this quote because John and Yoko were casualties of the haters. They were quirky, eccentric, certainly NOT mainstream by anyone's definition. When you live your life in this way... when you don't match and you don't care what others think, 'the others' begin to stalk and spew. I am very much a live and let live lady. I can't imagine a life so small that all you have to do with your hours is slander others.

    No covert message Ted. Just what ran through the cranial vault when I looked at the finished product. Maybe something to do with the disparity between the areas revealed and those hidden.

    i'm continually drawn back again and again to this. it is so real. When i read the words it makes me think of a quote from John Stuart Mill. A portion of that quote says "“In the case of any person whose judgment is really deserving of confidence, how has it become so? Because he has kept his mind open to criticism of his opinions and conduct. Because it has been his practice to listen to all that could be said against him; to profit by as much of it as was just, and expound to himself, and upon occasion to others, the fallacy of what was fallacious."

  • Bailey Cooper

    Bailey Cooper said (10 Jan 2014):

    Just a great quote Leslie. What completely amazes me is that our opinion of self rarely grows beyond that which has been assigned. No one ever stops to consider if the opinion has merit or contains truth. I look for the rare individual (like you) that rises above the masses in pursuit of self-actualization. To me, one worthy opinion is opinion enough.

    Your range of photographic expression is vast and competent throughout. Beauty, yes, but with more challenge to the soul of the viewer. Trust can never be complete, of course, but to what degree can it be good enough...if we can just keep kindness as our primary mode...?

    Leslie's quote from JS Mill quite appropriate and insightful.
