33::165 - Exploring Russian Hill

Once in a while Tien and I go off for a walk in the evening to explore the stairwells and alleys around our neighborhood. This alley was up a wooden stairwell that I initially thought was private property. I asked three kids with scooters and helmets that were coming down if it was their house and they said no, just an alley that was really pretty, then took off down some killer steep hill on their scooters. This is what Tien and I found in the alley.

The first shot of the Canon T3i was actually numbered 0. Self portrait because, hey, it's got a flip-out screen so why not?

So far, I think that for me, switching off the D3s to a newer, cheaper camera was a good change. I do not think that the D3s is $4500 better than this camera. One thing I'm enjoying already is the 50% more megapixels this camera offers. One thing I'm already missing is the killer tone curve and details in the dark areas the D3s had. Aside from that, experiencing photography from a consumer standpoint on a new platform is refreshing. The feature set is different, the interface is different.

One other thing I love about the T3i so far is that if I leave the LCD closed, it's just like using a film camera. All the important info is in the viewfinder.

Now, I need to accessorize with some great glass, because that's the most important part of a camera system these days.
