Hello from Manitoba, Canada

Hello everyone,

My name is Larry and Iím from Winnipeg. Iíve been lurking since Christmas and recently registered.

Iíve always enjoyed taking pictures, starting off with a point and shoot film camera. I love being in the outdoors (hunting and fishing). I found trying to take photos of nature and wildlife with a point and shoot camera very limiting. When I attended college, I took a basic photography course as part of my studies. That was my first introduction to an SLR camera. The college used Pentax gear.

When I got married my wife bought me a K1000 as a wedding gift. I used it for a couple of years until my daughter was born. We ended up buying a digital point and shoot camera which made it easier to share photos with relatives by email, on line albums etc. Soon the K1000 was packed away.

I got the itch to start taking photos again. For Christmas, my wife surprised me with a K200D. Itís a great camera for my experience level and needs. I started searching the internet for info on digital photography and Pentax DSLRs and ended up here.

This site is awesome. Everyone seems very friendly and knowledgeable. Iím looking forward to visiting often.
