My foray into photography started circa 1987 with a Chinon CP-7m (K mount SLR). I could never afford anything more than the 50mm f1/1.9 lens that came with it. I had a really great time with that camera. After a quite a few years, I lost interest and didn't do anything except take snapshots until I developed a love of gardening. That lead me to a desire to photograph flowers and my current K20D. I've really enjoyed reigniting my interest in photography and sharing with others. Over the last couple years this has expanded into the realm of underwater photography as well.
