Hello from Sonoma County

Greetings from beautiful (and dry) Sonoma County, California.

Thirty years ago I was a B&W medium format film hobbyist, but life, et al, got in the way and that hobby kind of faded away.

Now that Iíve got retirement coming up next year, I decided to get back into hobby photography, and bought myself a K5 IIs and some lenses. Loving digital, although after wading through the 300+ page user manual I feel qualified to fly a 747, but Iím still finding the versatility and complications of digital a little intimidating.

Thanks for a terrific and useful website.

Cheers
Peggy

Welcome!

I no longer live in God's country, but I am a Sonoma County native and find myself over in the area several times per month, mostly in Sebastopol where my sister and in-laws live, but other times in Petaluma where I was born, or Santa Rosa where my brother and some cousins reside.

You live in an area with an almost limitless number of photo opportunities, perhaps lacking only in gritty big city sorts of places to shoot, and of course, no snowy scenes.

Welcome, wow... camera manuals have never done that for me, perhaps I ought to read them in the first place it might help.
