My intro


I've been taking photos on and off since the early 70's, when I started with my Mom's Voigtlander. I got my first DSLR in December 2012. I chose a Pentax K30 because of the construction, image quality, ability to use legacy lenses with stabilization, and the bright pentaprism 100% viewfinder, the better-than average kit len, , and the great price (especially with the $100 rebate at the times.

I tokk the reabate and a few dollar more and purchased an 3 old primes--a 28 mm f2.8 SMC-A lense, a 50 mm F2.0 SMC-A, and an SMC-M f 3.5 135 mm. Right now the 28 mm is my favorite.

I like to shoot travel photos and odd stuff that catches my eye.
