Hello

I have dabbled in photography on and off for a number of years. I haven't focused on any particular style/genre, having said that I have always like cities and people watching.

I picked up a used boxed Ricoh GR Digital III with the f1.9 lens, in Japan early this year. It was an impulse purchase. I liked the build quality and the diminutive size of the camera. I'm getting to understand the camera and its capabilities, which on paper are quite outstanding, although my efforts are mediocre at the moment.

I am in the process of aquiring a used OMD E M1 and looking to source a 12-40mm F2.8 lens to go with it.

Enough of my ramblings, thank you for having me as a member.

David
