Thanks. This tree is a real treat when in full bloom. The flowers are good sized too so you can really enjoy it! Hi Martie. I had to go look at what camera I had then. It was a weird shaped Canon that was out for like 2 weeks and I was one of the jerks that bought it. I think I used it for just a few weeks. Canon PowerShot TX1

My first 35 mm camera was a Canon AE1. I loved it. Over the next year I bought a wide angle lense, a zoom lems with doubler, and several micro lens. I had the camera for 18 years and only had it in for repair once. They had to clean sand out of it. I was shooting pictures are a dirt bike race of a friends son when a biker went nuts and mowed me down. But I got some great shots, before the accident
