In the beginning... The idea was for my wife, Susan and I to go on a "date" every other weekend to a place in Arizona that we hadn't been before. While there, I would take pictures, and she would enjoy the scenery and time together. It was my task to pick our first destination. During my search, I took notice that Canon was sponsoring a free workshop that covered the basics of digital photography and the DSLR. Due to the fact that all my photography experience at that time had been with black & white film only, and that the workshop was to take place at the Grand Canyon, I thought, "Perfect!" and signed up immediately. Being excited about attending the workshop and seeing the Grand Canyon for the first time, we arrived just a bit early. 4:00am to be exact. :) Side note: At night the Grand Canyon looks like a giant black whole. The workshop was to begin at 9:00am so for the next few hours Susan got acquainted with the area and all the information provided at the visitor center, while I pointed my camera skyward and took pictures of sky trails and at the canyon during the sun rise. Needless to say, we both had a wonderful time that weekend. What I returned home with were bigger and better image possibilities, and the desire to learn how to hang them on our wall.
