365-249 Time for a new camera?

Found myself in Wheeling again today to take care of some business. It was yet another constant rainy day. I took a few shots around the streets but I wasn’t really liking anything I was seeing. I don’t know, just a creative low I guess. Maybe it’s the weather. Yeah, that’s it! The weather! Okay, okay I know the final output is my fault. In the end you, yes YOU, are responsible for your images. Work with whatever gear you have and make it work somehow. Would I like to have a full-frame 5DII and some L lenses? Sure. Or at least a new Pentax K-5 and the * lenses? Sure, but I don’t think my photography would look any different. It may make some things easier technically, and that’s always nice, but I can work around my current gears deficiencies. As a matter of fact the only reason I list my Pentax gear on the shots is because there is somewhat of a camaraderie among Pentax users. If I used Canon or Nikon gear I would be a small fish in a really large pond but using Pentax at least it’s a smaller pond. Anything that helps get me noticed.

This motley collection of photos were all taken today in Wheeling. I’m still playing around with different processing because it’s a long year and I certainly don’t want to end up with a recognizable style, do I? 🙂 Pentax K20D, DA 55-300

    I’ve been pretty busy but still keeping up with your pictures. Liked your point about Pentax being a smaller pond, maybe that is why I bought one as well. Hope you are well.

      Hi Nathan. I’m doing OK, considering. You know, the “two steps ahead, three steps back” thing. The Pentax pond is way small compared to the big two. I like the idea of using a “fringe” brand, especially since my results are the same as they would be with any other camera. In the end I want the images to speak for themselves regardless of gear or technique and I think they do.

      Thanks. I like it myself and wish I had spent more time exploring them.
