Hello all.

Latest addition to this auguste forum. I was interested in photography years ago and had an OM1 which served me well and proved singularly Oggyproof. A beautiful piece of engineering. I recently came back to photography with a few quid in my pocket and went to the camera shop. Everyone I spoke to said get the Canikon, but when I handled them all I fell in love with the K20d for it's solid feel.

To my mind, there are two reasons for taking a photo, either to record an event or to create a piece of art. As an engineer, I don't do art so I am in the former category.

I am into aircraft, motorbikes and wildlife, especially bears.

Be warned - I have the most awful sense of humour.

Look forward to meeting everyone.

Art is in the eye of the beholder, or in our case us. Nowhere is it written that you can't be an engineer and an artist. There isn't much difference between engineering and artistry. Creativity exists in both spheres.

Thanks for the warning Oggy! At least I can pretend not to understand, being no native English speaker.

Again: welcome (did this as reply on the parachute too...)

Welcome Oggy - where are the bears around your area?
You'll be pleased with the K20D.
Enjoy your time on the forum.

There are about three hundred bears live with Mrs Oggy and I. They are all over the house.

I don't really do holidays, but I want to see a bear, possibly a Polar Bear and maybe the Northern Lights, so I guess that would be Churchill in Canada or maybe Trontheim(sp?).
