After more than a year of saving, I finally have my own DSLR camera.
It is now time for me to practice using this type of camera since I was using a P&S before. The similarities is the menu an display will help me in figuring out this camera. The photography books that I have compiled will be of great use since there is no one to help me in operating the camera.
I hope to have my own photography session tomorrow if the weather permits. It's bern raining quite a lot this past week.

I took a snapshot of a man riding, and holding on for dear life, at the back of the van somewhere in the province of Lanao del Norte. We were all surprised upon witnessing his mode of transportation. The passengers in our van concluded that he must be the driver's assistant. Usually the driver's assistant, or "kondoktor" as it is locally called, sits near the sliding door of a van. We were frightened for him because the speed of which we were traveling at that point is above 40 km/h and the nearest towns have a travel time of about 2 hours. What amazing strength, patience and body control this man is exhibiting .
I wouldn't even dare riding like that without any safety precautions. Too many risks come up when you're in that situation.
Roller coasters are nothing to this guy.

I hope I can buy this camera by the first quarter of 2010, a Canon EOS 500D.
My current camera is a point & shoot Canon PowerShot A650 IS. This camera has been great to me for the past two years but, now, I want to venture into DSLR cameras to improve my photographic skills. As a beginner, the Canon EOS 500D would be suitable for my needs.
