Went out today just driving around looking for something to shoot. Rainy day and all so I figured I might shoot some scenery from an open car window.During a break in the rain I came upon a pasture with some cows grazing. I got out and they ran up to the fence to greet me. Friendly cusses Well, heres my first pic post. DL with the kit lens.

I guess while I'm at it...........I shot this last weekend. First night shots with the new cam. I converted it to Black and white. DL with Pentax 50 mm f2. I shot a bunch but only a few came out un-blurred. Hand held at night is difficult! Oh well, practice makes perfect.

The night shot is quite nice! The camera shake issue is the reason I ended up getting the K100D sooner, rather than waiting for something else.

Wherever you are it sure is greener than out here! Wish I were there, not here, hoping that we get through fire season without any more problems.

Thanks, I appreciate the comment. Yes, it's green around here(I live in Ohio) but I'm really looking forward to fall when the leaves turn. I'm hoping to get some really good shots this year. Some years the foliage is amazing here.

Now I'm really jealous - around here all that happens is that it gets browner. Well, to be fair, many of the cottonwoods go really yellow. Post some of your fall color when you get the chance!

Well, you have plenty of cool stuff to shoot in Cali too. One of my goals before I kick is to make it to Big Sur(check out the whales)make it to Monterey etc. Sandy beaches, girls in micro bikinis, muscle beach. Lots of stuff in Cali I want to see before I go.Guess the grass is always greener I will post some shots as soon as the leaves turn. Hopefully it will be soon.

Thanks, that's Akron Ohio on a Friday night. Down the street a bit the cops had the street blocked off because there was a concert and a double A baseball game. Thats why it looks so deserted.

I like this B&W shot. It's sharp all the way down the street, considering it is night time and hand held. Very nice!
