First Timer.....

Wow, can't believe I've broken down and started one of these blasted things. For a long time, I've always believed these things were... well, if you have something to say, Email or pick up the phone! I've created this blog to post my photo's. Its one of my many hobbies that I hope to share with my wife and family.

I recently made the jump to digital photography. I've always been a die hard film person but with 3 small children its rather difficult to find time to develop and print my negatives. I still have over a dozen rolls of B&W waiting for processing dating back probably to my first son's birth. A while back we bought a P&C HP Photosmart 3 megapixel camera and a descent Epson Inkjet printer. Neither of those were used much.

Well off to eBay I went and purchased a descent high end Canon 30D body. It was used and had about 7500 actuations (I hope). I was able to re-use my lenses that I had from my Rebel G (My Mom bought for me some 6 or 7 years ago) and I've always liked Canon's.

I couldn't be more happy with this camera. I've learned more in the past few days that I have in quite a long time. As I've always found, the Internet is a wonderful place to live and learn. Anyhow, I will continue to post about my walk-abouts and post my pictures. Hopefully, as my skill improves so will my photo's. My interests vary quite a bit. I like taking sports photo's (focusing on motorcycle road racing), candid family photo's and dabble a little in scenary.

Thanks for looking!
