I started with a Rebel XT and 28-105 in late 2006, and here's the earliest photo I can find online, from November of that year. Some railroad tracks downtown Rochester, NY.

This was in 2004. We also managed to get an autograph.
If I remember correctly, he is (was?) playing every Monday or Tuesday in cafe Carlyle.

Winter of 2000, is that far enough back?
My first digital was a Canon G-1 with a whopping 3 mp (sorry to bend the topic a bit)

First was a Pentax K200D back in March of 2008, to take better photos of my children.

Pijuns in flight have evolved into a sort of a signature shot with me.
This is the first such shot I've made which I have on record. Done with 300D + 70-300 f/4-5.6 USM at 300mm.

All right, here's the first "keeper" (relatively) I had from my first DSLR (Dynax 7D, 18-70 kit zoom at 23mm), a "portrait" of my grandmother. If only I had known that she only had two more months to live...

Here is something more "artsy" as I probably thought back then. Still not much. With quite a bit of stretch, this can be called "BIF".
http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa262/snopchenko/copy_of_PICT0516.jpg
And here's a couple shots from the first shoot among my DSLR archive that I feel should not be consigned to the Recycled Bin if I were to go through all these photos again HONESTLY. Judging by the file numbers, it only took me about 2400 photos (in a month or so) before I figured out I had to do something differently. Guess I was slightly livened up by the arrival of my first "proper" lens - one of the fabled Minolta Beercans. At least it gave me the first bit of control over the depth of field (having f/4 aperture) as seen in the second shot (at 75mm wide open).

I don't wanna show anything from my P&S times; I really was clueless back then.

This was my first ever PIF shot taken with a 30D and Bigma:

Picked up a D1 in 2003,but I still preferred to shoot film.I usually work and play in a salt water environment,so I generally didn't bring the D1 using it mostly for family shooting. I also had a few different digital P&S which I carried on the boats and derrick barges,but I usually had a few my old F3's,FM2n's or FE's on board as well.I jumped ship digitally from Nikon to Canon in 2008.I usually didn't take time to PP images back then and these were probably never PP'd.Some of these may have been P&S images.

I guess the affordable 10D and 100-400 got me hooked back into photography circa 2003. These are a few that got me going:

Great thread idea, Pete!

Here's one of my favorite bird photos from my first DSLR - a 300D.

My first DSLR was the D30 in May 2001. I had it only briefly but it was the point of no return; I never touched film since. My only regret is not shooting raw, it's not like back then we had raw converters... First trip was to Yellowstone and around the western states in June. Oh, to be young again!

Fond memories of that camera, and the travels with it.
