We are approaching retirement on the road...with cameras.


 Hi Photographer friends,

Well...we're almost there. At the end of this Month, we are officially retiring from our regular jobs and will hit the road with our RV. With my Pentax photography arsenal, I will now have all the time I want to take photographs all across this Country and Canada. I will have all the time to post all kind of useful "How to" for improving anyone's photography skills. My best images will be posted in a gallery linked to this site for sale at a minimum price for anyone to enjoy or use in advertisement.

I am aiming at getting equipment from Pentax, on loan, to test in actual field conditions. I'm not much of a "Measurebator" and don't worry much about  specifications of equipment, to a certain point. To me, it's the results you get by using your equipment in real life situations, not from scientific tests. 

We will be traveling to  every State or Province at one time or another and you know photo opportunities are going to be everywhere. What a good way to use lens from extreme wide angle to extreme telephoto. 

I will continue to write e-books for the Pentax brand of cameras and maybe some other brands as well. It seems  that since Ricoh purchased Pentax, the landscape has changed. I need the equipment on loan while I write a new e-book and that is becoming really hard with the new management of Ricoh/Pentax. The recent announcement from Ricoh that the Company will no longer bear the Pentax name as of August 1st, has me wondering where this is going to lead to. Remember Sony and Minolta?

Never-the-less, I have been a Pentax user all my life and will continue doing so. 

Along with this Pentax Blog, I also started a new blog, "The Long Way Home" in which I will document our travel with images, videos and write-ups about the places we visits, our adventures (Good and not-so-good) and anything we think you'd like. It will also be a way for family and friends to keep up with us.

This is going to be the adventure of our life (Anne and I) and I waited so long for it. I wanted to do that when I got out of College, but life took me in other directions, but thankfully, I will live the dream now.

Look for daily posting soon and also visit us on the new blog "The Long Way Home".

Thank you for reading and visiting this site for the last six years or so, and I hope you will continue to do so. The site will be more dynamic that ever.

Now that we will be traveling, we might have the pleasure to meeting with some of you along the long way home, sometimes.
