    What an interesting forum this is! I have enjoyed reading and looking at the high quality images for a few weeks now.

    I live in a shack up in the hills above Santa Barbara and I am an avid road bicyclist for many many years and I also play classical guitar. I'm a self-employed tradesman (house-painter) that tries to keep work in balance with the rest of my life, I've largely succeeded in that.

    I have a bit of grounding in old film cameras, so I know the basics of cameras and have had a couple of digital P&Ss since that all started some years ago. I am striving to get better images and shoot a little more, so I have recently purchased a higher quality camera and am trying to educate myself a bit. The camera I have is a Panasonic LF1. I am looking forward to participating in future discussions, thank you.

    Welcome to the forum!! Love the Santa Barbara area. Nice weather! Great shops and restaurants. But it does get crowded.

    welcome ragdoll. That wee LF1 is a smart looking camera. Do you have some images to share?

    Welcome to the forum. Please post when you can.

    on a side note -- I was just thinking this morning, why do I keep posting at SC? I've got a million things to do in my life. You reminded me -- there are some really interesting people here on this site. Quite an eclectic crowd. Glad you decided to join!
