Murietta 365 has a meme called Straight Out of the Camera Sunday. There are two rules: 1) the photo must be taken by you, and 2) no tweaking, cropping allowed.
I have a new Canon Rebel Xsi with an 18-55 mm stabilizer lens. To be honest, I haven't the foggiest idea what the numbers on the lens mean; but, I'll learn. :D
The first photo. I'm use to using a LCD monitor on the Nikon Coolpix 4300 instead of a view finder. If you can use the LCD monitor for setting up the shot on the Canon, I haven't found the right button; otherwise the Canon gives the settings on the LCD and then the photo after the shot. Other than that, the camera seems to be a great one for this moderate beginner. Ignore the mess; I'm working on taxes.
This is a cool shot in that I caught this bee, heavily laden with pollen, in mid-flight. The old Coolpix would never have gotten the shot.
Found this violet in bloom on the north side of the house. Got to work on the macro shots with the lens I have. Back to the instructions. :D

Until next time, God bless.
