I always liked photography and I got started when I bought a Pentax SLR and took my first pictures with it on a ski trip to Austria. New camera, never used before, on a trip a long way from home. However the pictures all came out and I was hooked! Since then I have combined my love of art along with my hobbies of landscaping, boats, sports and racing cars, along with my childrens pictures and candid pictures of people. Always with SLR’s. Now I am starting out with a compact digital for the first time. All of the digital pictures have been taken with a Panasonic TMC-TZ5. I am looking to get a SLR because I find it difficult to compose pictures in the sunlight because of the reflections in the viewing screen.
Please note that I only log on to my computer about twice a week. It may take me a while to answer your comments, so I am not ignoring anyone and thank you in advance for your interest. In addition I plan on buying a scanner soon and adding some of my 35mm slides to the bubble.
