My Photo Project for 2015

I just bought my first lens from Don’s Photo today.  I have several lenses for my Pentax K-x;

  • Pentax 28mm f/3.5
  • Pentax 35mm f/2.4
  • Pentax 50mm f/1.8
  • Pentax 50mm f/2
  • Sigma 70-210mm
  • Pentax 200mm f/4
  • Pentax 100-300mm

There were either handed down to by dad or ones that Mom and Dad gave me for Christmas (the Pentax 35mm f/2.4)

The Pentax 50mm f/1.8 was the first I had bought for myself.  It felt good.

In other news dad has been agonizing over upgrading his beloved Pentax K-30.  He is going to get a Pentax K-3 and when he does, I will see if I can convince him to give his K-30 to his loving, awesome, and eternally grateful oldest son.  Did I mention how awesome of dad he is?  Again, he sure is awesome.
