Lights, camera, fun

Armed with my new Canon Digital Rebel XSi, I headed out the other night to check out the Lincoln Park Zoo Lights. (To Chicagoland readers, note that today, Sunday, January 4th is the last day to see them this season.)

For now I just have the lens that comes with the camera, the EFS 18-55. I had a lot of fun trying out some of the settings on the camera on this outing.

Regarding the various lights, this was one of my favorite pieces:

Finally, the most fun unintended result:


Fun times ahead with my new camera!
