Dreams do Come TRUE!!

The K 70 I ordered from Ebay arrived today and appears to be in great operating condition. It is 3 years old, but had only 1,575 Shutter Count so it is virtually new. Hopefully the weather in Denver will improve tomorrow so that I can make some test shots. My entire family will be together on Saturday so we will get some pictures out of it. If all the grandkids make it we could have up to 34 people there.

The main thing is the pictures of my kids , their kids, and finally everybody as an individual. Just being there is going to feel like Heaven on Earth. When I die the only thing I will leave behind is my wife the six kids/their spouses and my 20 grandkids including those who joined my family with their mother. Those people represent a lifetime of work and they really are worth it.

I only hope that my rusty old skills will be effective in capturing this grand event. I know it will be wonderful from a technical viewpoint and the test will cone when you put that which I have learned fron Ude online coursework, my new pride and joy the new (to me) K -70, and my Affinity Photo post-processing to document the work of a lifetime -- my family.
