Hello from Washington, DC

Born in southern California, I've lived all over the world and have settled (for now) in Washington, DC. Currently, I work in IT, but previously I was a photojournalist (the poorly paid, overworked, stressed-out kind, not the romantic movie kind). Now, I am happy as an amateur photographer, making my living other ways, and falling in love with the camera again.

I started with Pentax many years ago with film SLR's (Pentax ME), then left for Olympus film (OM-1, OM-2, OM-4), then Olympus digital (E-520, E3), and now I've returned to Pentax with a recent K-5 purchase. Wow! Now I remember why I always had a soft spot for Pentax.

So hello to everyone here from Washington DC!

Welcome to the forum from a "reasonably close" neighbor (Gainesville, Va).

Welcome! I'm just about to move away, but I'd be happy to share my favorite photography spots with you some time!

Thanks to all of you for the warm welcome! It seems like a nice group here, from what I've seen. I'm always open to suggestions for photography spots, especially as I'm rather new to the area. Most of what I shoot is documentary or nature (and sometimes both), with a little street here and there. This weekend, it's nature walks and my recently acquired K-5!

Well, for starters...if you have a bike, and even if you don't, I'd really recommend the Mt. Vernon Trail between Rosslyn and Reagan National Airport. It's really pretty, and you have a nice view of the monuments across the water.
