Roll 1 my first Autofocus SLR<revised>
Well This is some of my better shots from roll 1. You have to keep in mind i've been taking photos with this SLR camera for not even a week yet too, yet please be critical on my photos and help me grow in the field of photography.
These photos below are some I took of downtown Tupelo, MS my small town were i currently reside. Please feel free to mention anything that would help me improve those shots. They were the best I thought off this roll and perhaps beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Natural Bridge Payson, Az Updated Pictures
The natural bridge, so named for a gigantic naturally occurring rock formation in the shape of a bridge provides a quaint weekend getaway from the hustle and bustle of central phoenix.
When you get to the state park you need to hike down about 1/2 a mile to get to the bottom of the natural bridge. From the top, you can look down into the cavernous valley where you notice a magnificent waterfall streaming down to the very bottom. The waterfall (pictured) is cool, crisp, and refreshing. Once at the bottom you can climb past a few slippery rocks and be directly underneath the waterfall.
The waterfall is beautiful and feels soothing against your skin and it gently hits you at various intervals. Inside the waterfall the air is cool with a gentle breeze flowing through the cave. Smooth textured rocks and open caves decorate the inside of the million year old rock formation. If you like you can climb up into the open caves but be careful! The rocks can get slippery and steep.
Birdie and Wildman
One night we set up the tripod on the American side of the falls and tried to get a picture of us. When the falls light up the tour buses come and you have to be patient to get your shot. As the night got darker the exposure times changed and I misjudged how long we had to freeze ourselves in front of the camera. I jumped out of the shot a couple of seconds early, then Birdie followed. Birdie and Wildman
A Snake Is What A Snake Is
Along he went trying to pretend he was in Alaska, so that at least mentally he would be cooler than his body really was in the sweltering heat, when all of the sudden right dab in the middle of the road was a baby snake! Terrified, Tommy didn't know if he should go to the left to avoid coming into contact with the snake or go to the right.
As Tommy veered off to his right and giving himself plenty of safe distance, Tommy moved along - keeping his eyes peeled right on that snake each step of the way just to be safe. Almost completely by and in the safe, the snake says to Tommy "You have two legs, you can mmove down the road faster than me, since we are going the same way why don't you pick me up and put me in your shirt pocket and carry me along?". Tommy didn't need a split second to decide, "you are a snake and I am afraid of snakes, so no". The snake came back just a quickly and said 'Oh but I am a baby snake and have no teeth with which to bite you."
Thinking for a moment and seeing how crawling on your stomach down the dirt road in the high noon sun must be miserable, Tommy decided to do the good deed and reached down and picked the snake up and put him in his shirt pocket. And along they went down the road. After awhile Tommy questioned, "So, where should I put you down or how far are you going?" At that very moment the snake bit throught the shirt fabrick and right down to the skin on Tommy's chest! And hard, too. "What the heck, you promised me not to bit, why did you go and do that?". The snake replied, "because I am a snake."
