Hello from HOT Texas!

I just joined and am looking forward to learning a lot about my gear and how to use it well.
I started with a Pentax k1000 (film) camera 30 years ago. And it still works, tho every once in awhile the sprocket that advances the film gets stuck, or the mirror gets stuck in the up position, and I have to waste some frames coaxing it back into working order. So I don't use it, or my other k1000 body for real "vital" stuff.
I've had a k100D for a few years, and I'm buying my niece's lightly used 10D when I see her later this summer.
I have a couple off-brand lenses with the bayonet mounts and the fact I can use them with the newer cameras is just a big plus because I can't just buy all new lenses!
I like photographing animals, especially wildlife, nature, weather, landscapes. People not so much except for family.Also I like riding my horses, and I take lots of pictures out on the trails, although usually with a point-and-shoot because they are smaller and lighter.

Welcome. I lived in Amarillo from 1999-2002. Great city. Just drove there a few weeks ago while moving from Dallas to southern Utah.
