Yesterday I came back from a vacation (see Bing Map) to Taos, New Mexico and Durango, Colorado with stops in Albuquerque, Silverton Colorado, and Mesa Verde National Park.  I took my new Canon T1i digital SLR with me and loved using it – taking over 1,000 photographs and HD videos.  In addition to the photographs and video, I chronicled some of the days in my journal with sketches, watercolors, and collage. I I’ve already started making some panorama shots using Windows Live Photo Gallery and I plan to do some deep zoom compositions of the photographs (15 megapixels) and my journal pages.
