As any proud Papa, I like taking pictures of my daugther.<br>Here are some of my favorites. I try to use a long lense as much as possible to get better depth in the picture. Usually I go with my 70-200mm Canon lense.<br>I know, I know, seeing pictures of other people's kids is like watching paint dry.<p>1 - Just took this picture last week. We had a holiday on Kauai for 10 days. I greeted Sonja with flower lai ( I flew in a few hours before my wife & daugher).<p><IMG SRC="http://kjelstrup.homelinux.com/kris/Hawaii_06/Sonja%20posing%20with%20lei.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>2 - Also from Hawaii. My wife and Sonja's friend is in this picture<p><IMG SRC="http://kjelstrup.homelinux.com/kris/Hawaii_06/Inside%20the%20cave.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>3 - Future chess champion???<p><IMG SRC="http://kjelstrup.homelinux.com/kris/Xmas_2005/Future%20chess%20champion.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>4 - While on OSD last fall, I like this shot of Becky looking around the tree for Sonja who "WANT MOMMY" right NOW:<p><IMG SRC="http://kjelstrup.homelinux.com/kris/europe_2005%20France/My%20favorite%20picture%20from%20France.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>5 - Camping last summer near Friday Harbor in the San Juan Islands of Washington State. The water was, uhh, a little cold.<p>
<p>6 - This picture will cost me when she is teenager (she's 5 now). This is last summer on the way to Vancouver Island on the ferry.<p><IMG SRC="http://kjelstrup.homelinux.com/kris/Island_05/Plumbers%20Class%20of%202018.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>7 - A rose by any other name (from summer 2005)<p><IMG SRC="http://kjelstrup.homelinux.com/kris/Recital_May05/A%20rose%20by%20any%20other%20name....jpg" BORDER="0"><p>8 - In Skaneateles, NY, visiting friends. Sonja liked their dog. Memorial Day 2005. <p><IMG SRC="http://kjelstrup.homelinux.com/kris/NY_2005/Sonja%20&%20Charlie%20-%20one%20of%20my%20favorite%20pictures%20.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>9 - We drove up to the Tulip Festival in Mount Vernon, WA last spring. I just like this picture.<p><IMG SRC="http://kjelstrup.homelinux.com/kris/flowers_mtvernon/Sonja%20near%20Lake%20Sammamish.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>10 - Those eyes! From 2 years ago.<p><IMG SRC="http://kjelstrup.homelinux.com/kris/Victoria_04/Those%20eyes.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>11 - Maybe my overall favorite. Also from 2 years ago<p><IMG SRC="http://kjelstrup.homelinux.com/kris/Victoria_04/Love%20this%20picture%20of%20Sonja%20-%20the%20trick%20is%20to%20stand%20far%20away%20with%20a%20long%20camera%20lense.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>12 - With her friend Ian as we came from mountain biking at Whistler almost 2 years ago. This one is really cute!<p><IMG SRC="http://kjelstrup.homelinux.com/kris/whistler_04/One%20of%20my%20all%20time%20favorite%20pictures%20-%20Sonja%20and%20Ian%20both%20three%20years%20old.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>13 - This one is also one my favorites. Sonja sitting on the beach in the Cook Islands in March 2004, with jelly beans and "Stewart"<p><IMG SRC="http://kjelstrup.homelinux.com/kris/cook_island/slides/IMG_3770.JPG" BORDER="0"><br>

Re: Favorite pictures of my daugther (flybynight)

Very nice shots. What mode do you use most often with the Rebel?

Re: Favorite pictures of my daugther (geo1)

For these types of pictures, either full auto, or portrait mode. It all depends on where the sun is if I want to force the flash to go off to remove some shadows.

Re: (flybynight)

Kris........<p>Get the Ipod! Worth the $$...For performance...what are you thinking? Downpipe and exhaust? Or a chip? The downpipe/exhaust will get you "some" addtional KICK..the chip will get you some impressive results!<br>Contact RSalesman here on SS...tell him you are friend of mine. He has done some "Serious" mods to his R! Getting @ 370-375hp now! Sounds very "throaty" with the 3''downpipe and new exhaust and it is "stupid fast".....<br>I even put an IPD sport exhuast on my old 240.....just for the fun of it. Changed the sound a little...gave me a "tiny bit" more power in 2nd/3rd gears...but it did increase my gas milage by @ 2 mpg...which on a 240 is not as good as you would think for a 4cyl. <br>I may send Devin a few of my daughters pics...just for the fun of it!<br>BTW....your Orangeman pulled of the big one in teh BigE tourney <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> Hope they get a "dance card"!

I'm just dropping the car off with some syntethic oil and getting a loaner (XC70).<br>As for engine performance, I haven't decided yet. So, Rsalesman is a good source, eh? Is his R fully covered by warranty?
