In response to the overwhelming demand for more pix of me, here ya go.
Now, please don't write or email asking for dates or money 'cause I just hate to constantly have to say no, no, no. Taken by "anonymous" with a new Pentax K20D and a kit 18-55 Pentax lens.

There's a little used railroad spur that runs through the middle of Little Red River Park in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. I lived in that city for 10 years and spent many enjoyable hours, all seasons, wandering about the park's 1,200 acres of peace and quiet. I didn't take the shot but it's used with the photographer's permission.
I like to play with photo equipment. I'm a Pentaxian (I use Pentax equipment) but having other stuff at hand sometimes enables me to capture an image that's just a bit different. These days with millions of digital cameras clicking madly off in all directions there are some really spectacular photos being created... but a lot more truly awful ones as well. Some people don't seem to have the hang of the "delete" key on their cameras - you know, the one with the little TRASH CAN on it! It's where 9 out of 10 shots belong on average.
I like to use flash in addition to natural light. I learn a little bit more about this technique each time I venture out. I recommend David Hobby's STROBIST site to anyone wanting to learn about using flash properly ( http://www.strobist.blogspot.com/ ).
