My favorite hobby is photography. I love to photograph my kids and nature. I got my first camera, a Pentax K1000, in 1977 (my freshman year in college) as a Christmas gift. My younger brother had taken a photography class in high school and my Dad converted the basement bathroom into a darkroom. I wasn't much into the developing end of phtotography but appreciated the cool stuff my brother did. I tried his camera out and loved the ability to set the shutter speeds and apeture settings to get different effects and results. I still have the camera and use it occasionally but mostly shoot with a Canon EOS SLR--still prefer using film. Mama gave me a great Canon digital this year for Christmas and love the convenience and the quality.
In keeping with the season, here are some fall foliage shots.
