Why so many "Professional" photographers must live in trailer parks now becomes amazingly clear.....
Those aren't trailer parks. They're Artist-Communities.

Curse you GoremanX! The LBA monster rears its ugly head again.

I'm selling all my primes to help fund one of these.

Do you think I should get this len?

Uncle Harry asked me to take pictures at Susie's wedding. Here is my camera set up. Susie is a pretty sharp cookie and she likes my camera since it can change lens and uses Audio-visual Settiing. And I can send them to her Instagram Wedding account right away, too!!
Instagram is VERY important. That is why it is essential that Pentax retrofit all product with with WiFi and GPS.

Definitely professional work. Where can I buy wall-sized prints?

I refuse to buy the 600 f1.2 because it has a red ring around it and I only ever use lenses with a gold ring. Sadly I had to create my own stickers bearing the message "This is not a Tamron lens".

Nice point, what do you think you are Pentax? Canon?

This is the reason why you don't shoot dogs for test shots. IBIS don't work with dogs. Every professional knows that.


Now, try to find a cat....

Who shoots dogs just for a test photo? That's disgusting.

Yep. About 10 years ago the next town over, Granite Falls, was noted in Rolling Stone magazine as the Meth Capital of the United States. A severely depressed economy, a grossly undereducated population, high unemployment, all combine to foster an environment perfect for the growth of this terrible scourge.

I used to shoot the dogs. Then I realized that it was the result of irresponsible pet owners.

So now I get after the owners.

Nah.

The cougars that wander the neighborhood take care of the cats. And other small animals. Around here, if a person wants a domestic cat, it has to be an indoor cat.

Oh, yeah. The bald eagles that nest in the trees by the river also keep the wandering small pets in check too. The old couple down the road used to have one of those small floor mop looking dogs, a Pomeranian I think. Its name must have been Roxy, because the old lady was always out there on her porch, sucking on a cigarette, squawking at the thing in her gravelly hoarse voice, "Roxy!, Roxy! Get over here!"

Every time I would come home I would stop to get the mail out of the box at the end of my driveway. This little mutt would come out and nip at my heels. I complained to the geezer who owned it and he got real snotty with me and refused to keep his dog restrained.

Well one Sunday morning I was sitting on the porch having coffee, and I saw this little yapper out by my mail box leaving a pile for me to step in.

And I also saw one of the bald eagles soaring above.

Suddenly the eagle folded its wings and dove straight down. It pounced on the yappy little mutt, took off and disappeared in the trees by the river.

That was the end of Roxy.

I wish I would have had the 31, it would have made some great shots of that mutt as the eagle carried it off. As it was the old bat blamed me for the disappearance of her dog.

Nah! You need the soon-to-be-released FA* 10-600 f/1.2 Macro Limited.
