I started in photography with a 35mm Pentax about 30 years ago, took a few day courses at a community college, had fun with it for a number of years but my interests and lesiure time changed so I eventually sold the camera. Got in to it again when I got my first computer about 6 years ago and discovered that the pictures from disposable cameras could be put on cd discs. This led to the purchase of an Olympus digital (a point and shoot model) and to my latest which is a Z Model Kodak which has a 5X zoom and is an 8.1 megapixel. A 2X lens magnifier and c.c. complete the package and all this was cheaper to purchase than either of my other two. It's put the fun back in photography for me. Hope one of my photos has triggered an emotion within you, thanks for looking.
