    Hello everyone.

    I am not new to photography, but I am far from expert.
    I was born and mostly raised in Alaska. I live in central Oregon and have since 1994.

    I have a new point-n-shoot. I like it and it does everything I ask it. But it's still not a "real" camera.
    Last week I scored an older Sony Alpha NEX-5 for what I think is a good price. I love it so far.
    Already in search of inexpensive old lenses to play around with.

    My new-to-me baby :D
    It's a little beat up but it works well.

    I used to ride a motorcycle to Eastern Oregon to take photos whenever I had the chance. You have the advantage of already being there! :)

    A fan of all firearms. But yes I am an AK fan, only one one though. But the screen name also kinda comes from an old screen name I used for a long time, Asylum Keeper. So that name, plus ak47, plus my first initial is my new screen name
