Greetings from South Dakota

Greetings to all from South Dakota. I'm Steve. I've had a camera in my hand since age 5. Dad had a darkroom in the basement where he taught us the basics.
In my early teens, I discovered "The Pentax". I bought a K1000 with money I'd earned delivering newspapers. My family loved it so much, my dad and one brother also bought one. I used that camera for many years until a quick dip in the ocean (reef walking) took care of that. Then it was time to upgrade. I had three different Pentax SLR's before I upgraded to the ISTd. Now I own a K10.
I can't possibly go back and count how many pictures I've taken over the years but, with 23 years in the military, I've taken them around the world.

If anyone ever travels out to Western South Dakota, I'd be happy to show you some beautiful places for pictures!
