Just registered, posting to introduce myself

Hello Pentax forums. I'm very new to photographic science. Have some exposure to photography through my Mom while growing up, but learned more here in 30 minutes of reading than I could have expected.

I recently gifted myself a Pentax K-r because I was dissapointed with my point and shoot camera's inability to capture 4 yr old kids at speed. I bought it because of the "entry level dslr" reviews and an affinity for a Pentax I had in university.

My work has me travelling the rural back roads regularly, and I hope to capture some memorable pictures of some of the fading stone and brick structures. Love a recommendation for a lense/settings to do that right.
