The question is, why take photographs?

I like to see something I have made, although the vast majority of my photos are 'snapshots'. I take a bit of pride in making the holiday portraits and nights with friends photos look nice.

I love a fast lens, a manual focus a big print and a lively discussion. I've seen a few forums and taken a few photos but I am still learning a lot about both those things!

Heading to the US for a holiday this year - looking forward to some interesting shots! Before that, looking for a DSLR to retire the MZ-50, and some good grades.

Looking forward to learning a bit from this place, taking some more photos and improving my eye.

Hope to see you guys online!

When snapshots echo some people's moods, they will no longer be snapshots
