Hello there.

Hey I'm Eric. I'm 22 years old and I live in a small town in Texas. My job in the oil field gives me a huge amount of time on my hands so I've finally given into an urge I've had for a while to get a camera and start learning some about photography. After quite a bit of research, a few months ago I bought a K-5. I currently only have the 18-55mm kit lens and a DA-L 55-300mm I picked up off of eBay. Lately my focus () has shifted to older manual lenses and I'm currently looking at getting an m42 adapter and I'd like to start a good vintage prime collection. I enjoy taking pictures of nature and people. When I'm out at work, I often find myself in beautiful places and I love attempting to capture some of the beauty of God's creation. I have a few babies in the family to take pictures of and also an 11 year old sister who will be doing plenty of photo-worthy things in school and whatnot. I'm glad to have found a forum where I can come to learn and maybe even acquire some cool vintage glass. Thanks for the friendly helpfulness!

Welcome Eric, looking forward to your postings. The oil fields should provide many photo-ops, landscapes, plant and animal life, machinery and if you are on a derrick, some pics from the top would be from a perspective we don't often see, Post soon and often..Cliff
