I love photography and I’ve always wanted to learn how to use all the fancy buttons and dials on my camera.  My “big” camera (a Canon T1i) takes great photos but I knew it could do so much more if I only knew what all those settings meant.  Well, today I finally took a class.  Yeah!  It was an hour of buttons and dials followed by a field trip around the neighborhood looking for interesting subjects.  It wasn’t a great area for interesting doors but I found a few…and you can expect a LOT more photo-safari posts now that I’ve graduated from DSLR-1.  Just wait until DSLR-2!

I don’t remember ever seeing a hinge in this condition:

This is the subway entrance.  Chained gates give me the willies.

Someone just asked me about a cylindrical lock on a gate…here you go!

This is one of my favorite non-door-related photos of the day:

This is what my life feels like:

If you’re a glutton for punishment, or if you just like photos of random building details, feel free to check out my Flickr set from today’s class.

      My neighborhood isn’t as interesting as this one…the class was in Central Square in Cambridge Mass.

    I have the exact same camera… it is boggling the settings it has!
