Digital at last

Thanks to edvinas I am now in charge of a used (but definitely not abused) *ist Ds.
Thanks to the huge mob of generous contributors to PentaxForums I have a head start on someone starting out from scratch.
As with my film usage, I will probably find myself more interested in the final image than in the fine technical details of photographic equipment.
Here's a couple of yesterday's oddities :

Eucalyptus tree bark, in the shade, under a very blue sky.

I love the textures and colors in eucalyptus trees. We have a bunch near where we live and they're quite photogenic.

What lens did you use?

Dig those textures! The DS is a great camera... I must admit, I don't use mine nearly enough since I purchased a K10D before picking up the DS for a steal.

So, congrats on going digital! Looking forward to seeing more!
