Old and noobish

I'm a recent retiree with a DS and a K10D, still learning how to be a photographer but having a great time at it.

My first "real" camera was a Honeywell Spotmatic (NEVER should have sold it), followed by an Asahi H3V, a Pentax MX, ME Super and KX (still have the ME and KX). Got into the digital swim in 2004 with that DS, then became more serious with the K10D.

Of course I have a lot of legacy glass and use it frequently, but my walkaround lenses are a Sigma 17-70 and, for wildlife shooting, a Sigma 135-400.

Now my lady friend has become interested. She's using the DS and 18-55 lens to document the small-town flavor of a nearby shopping street.

You can see our stuff at The Whodunit Photographer. I think we're getting better but we have a long way to go.
