Hello from Wales

Hello from the rain soaked, sheep clad, beautiful hills of Wales! Well actually only just, I'm from Montgomery which sits next to Offa's Dyke only a quarter of a mile from England. I've just bought my first proper digital SLR a stunningly red Pentax K50 with the standard DAL 18-55 WR lens but many years ago, whilst at University, I used to dabble in photography with a Russian totally manual SLR with no TTL metering so I know about the basic physics and mechanics of picture taking, I used to do my own developing too! I'm pretty computer literate and enjoy Gimping on Linux but I'm still at the bottom of a steeping learning curve. Be gentle with me!

Merci Jean.

Thank you Jean, the above was the first picture I took with my new Pentax after I opened the box from Amazon, The apple and bowl of tomatoes were just on the kitchen table next to me, so I put the apple into the bowl and click!

Below is a quick portrait I took this week of my friend Ivy, she is 100 years old next June. I put it into greyscale with GIMP.
