Another person with too much money and too much time
Lens: DA* 60-250 f4 Camera: K5 Photo Location: Bendigo, Victoria ISO: 400 
Posted By: Murra54, 02-13-2016, 07:35 PM

So I went out and bought a new lens. Lifes partner is a gym addict, I am not.
So I went for a walk around the CBD whilst waiting for her.
These were all just lying around waiting for me. The sparrow is cropped.

Your money nor time wasted !! The DA*60-250 is a great lens and a joy to use. Well taken photographs.

Thank you. The lens is so good that it highlights every flaw in my technique. I like it.

Next time you have way too much money and time, send some of the former my way. I sure can use it. LOL! (You did get your exercise nevertheless just like your partner.)

Thank you, Susan. The photograph was happenstance, I was sitting on the wall of the cascade, near the library, wondering where to go next. This bird landed in the water and started to wash. it saw me and took off. the photograph is more a tribute to continuous shooting mode than my timing. But thank you, anyway

Great job on both shots. Very good photography. The equipment may very well be the best, but do not sell your own talents short. You still have to know what you are doing, and obviously, you do. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Tony, the best part of being involved in Pentax Forums is the enormous variety of photography you get to see, so much of which is simply stunning. It has revived my apetite for getting out and making photographs. The upside of all this is that I have to improve my technique. it is also good to show images in a supportive environment.

Once again, thank you for the comments, I will be back with more
