Thank you "Life with Kaishon" for a fun interview

One of the letters with an appropriate quote from my ABC Paris project.

Hey, Take-out photo readers...head on over to Life with Kaishon to read me on the opposite side of an interview. It was fun and I loved thinking about the questions she asked me.

And to all you Life with Kaishon readers who might have clicked over to my blog...WELCOME! Stick around and maybe you'll find some tips or inspiration. The theme changes every month and I post on whatever inspires me.

Hi Marc, I read your interview with Life with Kaishon. I loved your photos, so now I'm following you and hope that over time I might learn how to use my camera more effectively and take better and better photos. I have loved photography ever since I was a kid, but have never done a course or taken it too seriously. Something I regret, but I'm here now and hope to learn all I can from you.

Visiting from Life with Kaishon!! Love your street photography! It's something I wish I could do more often. But frankly, scary encounters like the one you described is what deters me from doing it. But until I get over my fears, I'll live vicariously through you and your stunning work :)

Hey, you sound like you have a lot of money, can I have some? What? It never hurts to ask.
Only foolin, Mar(c).
But Seriously, I was telling Rebeckah(LWK) that I will begin to learn Photoshop within the next week if the kids give me a break. I will look up your Photoshop rant to see what that's all about. I hesitate to "join in" for fear that I'll lose the originality and innocence of my pictures. Does that make sense? I don't know, I'm just typing out loud. And now you can't hear me but I'm talking to myself.
Anyway, it's nice to meet you and I really do appreciate the fact that you are handing out a free education to us Newbies. Can I get a Certificate to hang on my wall? I'll put it up right beside the other ones that I created so that people think that I'm smart. They are soooo jealous. Just the other day, Shirlee came into my office and said "You graduated from Princeton"? But I played it cool. I said "oh, is that thing still up there"? But that's just between you/me/your followers and anyone else who has Internet Access.
Okay, I gotta go but I'll be back. Oh, and ah, if you do want to send me some money, I won't offend you by refusing it.
Your Friend, Mark. Or how's this, Marq? Classy, I know, right?

Your interview was great...and I loved every picture scattered throughout. I wondered if you had another lens to recommend, for someone who was looking for something with smaller f/stop numbers than the kit lens, but not so $$$ as the ones you mention. I have the 50mm/1.8, but was looking for one that I can change the focal distance. I think it's relatively clear that I have no idea what I'm talking about. :)

Great interview at Life with Kaishon. You're so inspiring - we really should wear our cameras as necklaces. (And then invest in a Chiro practice.)

Hi Marc, I am popping over from Becky's blog also. You take some pretty incredible photos, no doubt. You have such a great eye! I am following your blog now and am looking forward to some tips, I am such a beginner you probably can't even call me a beginner yet! I do love taking pictures though.

Love the ABC Paris work!

@Christina:
For an affordable zoom, you might check out the Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS (make sure it works on your model camera). I haven't tried it personally, but the reviews are excellent and the price is good ($229 at B&H). Another option (that I have tried and thought was very good for the price) is the Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Image Stabilizer USM Autofocus Lens ($374.95 at B&H)
