I have had an interest in photography since my childhood. I probably got it from my father.
I mainly use Pentax gear. It started with 35mm. It now includes digital, 6x4.5, and 6x7.
I am a semi-professional as I am an engineer in my full-time job.
I am slowly creeping into the Leica world. I have a IIIf and an M3 in the film world. I picked up a D-Lux 5 and most recently an M9 - using my lenses that were made in the 50s.
I see my photos as accompanying me whenever I end up in my old age in a rocking chair sitting on the front porch :-)
