Why did I get a DSLR?

On the heals of my last post, and prior to my full review, I wanted to talk a little about why I decided to get a DSLR camera.  With standard point and shoot camera's getting so much better and so affordable, why would you ever get such a large and pricey camera?  To be honest, a few years ago I would have been asking myself the same question.  However, the more I learned about them, the more I saw how much others enjoyed DSLR cameras, the more I realized it is a hobby that matches my personality quite well.

Dinner in Photos

So I broke down and got a nice DSLR camera.  I ended up getting a Canon T2i.  I have had it for about 24 hours now and I am still learning how to use it.  I plan on writing up a full review for the camera once I spend some more time with it.  Until then, enjoy the pictures in my first album below.  I took some pictures as my wife made dinner.  I know, they are not all that good of pictures, but the feature here is the camera, not my photography skills.  The picture to the left and the ones of the water made my jaw drop when I first looked at them.  Also, the pictures are reduced in size so some of the detail is lost.
