    Hey all,

    I just thought I would pop in and say “hello” and post a few of my favorite photos. I am currently on a Canon 20D and am very happy w/ its performance. As for the lenses and other kit they are as follows:

    Canon 18-55mm (kit lens)
    Tameron 17-35mm f/2.8-4
    Canon 50mm f/1.8
    Canon 75-300mm f/4-5.6 (and just started today w/ a beautiful grinding noise when in AF…)
    Speedlight 420EX
    A pile of Cokin “P” series fliters and filter baskets.
    Bogen/Manfroto monster sticks (a throw back to my videographer days)
    Bogen Monopod
    Manfroto sticks (cant remember the model #’s and they are tripods who really cares eh?)
    Computreker AW backpack (It was great in China)
    Canon Gadget Bag 100EG
    I also use one of those soft insulated lunch bags. Its great for keeping a low profile when out and about.

    Future lenses/bodies:
    Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 w/ ISM
    Canon 24-70mm f/2.8
    Sigma 8mm f/3.5
    EOS1 MkIII (I love that frame rate!)

    Now for some of my photos:

    Hi!
    I really like your self-portraits! The little bit of color in the first one totally makes it stand out.
    Do you have a webpage like flickr or anything?

    Those are some nice photos. Makes me want to head back down to Atlanta and get some better skyline shots.

    Yay for flickr and it’s RSS feeds. Another one added to my screensaver. It even puts the name of the photographer (or whatever you use for your screenname) so I know who to go look at when I start seeing new pictures!
