Today's photo goes back several years to 2003. While at the Orange County Fair, I snapped this one off of these young girls performing a traditional Mexican dance. The vibrant color of the dresses draw the eye immediately.

The beauty of this shot proves that you don't need the most modern DSLR (although it helps) to capture great photos. I used my Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P92 5.0 Megapixel point-and-shoot digital camera for this photo. In comparison, today's new Nikon D300 and D3 are 12 megapixels cameras.
Today's lesson is encouragement to get out and shoot regardless of your camera. In the end it is the photo's compositon and not the equipment that makes great shots. Happy shooting.
P. S. The Sony has long ago bite the dust, so today I will take my new expensive Nikon out for a run. I goes to show that you get what you pay for.
