I haven't seen any of Javo's pictures. Can you tell me where I can find these beautiful landscapes of his?
I'm not of photographer myself, but I think pt would like to take up the hobbie one day. I like to admire beautiful pictures, I just don't think I have the eye to create it. I am envious of those of you who can do it.
I think he has a link on his profile! It's so worth the look too! The shots of Cedar Falls are splendid.

I enjoy taking pictures (although I haven't in a while). I don't consider myself a photographer though (because I hardly know what I'm doing aside from pushing a button or two on a device they call a camera).
A couple ones I took in SF a year and a half or so ago:
I love taking pictures, but I'm not terribly good at it, and I don't have the money to spend on a really good camera anyway. It's a fun hobby though.
You know, I have a '81 Minolta X-370 - very forgiving and completely manual - you can buy them on Ebay for relatively little. I paid $90.00 for one camera body ( in super condition thankfully ) and several lenses. Now that digital cameras have flooded the market, no one really wants the manual cameras anymore, and you can get them for a song.
I am very much into photography. I am especially into nature photography - birds, trees, wildflowers, landscapes, marmots...
I am also really into traveling, so I have rolls and rolls of travel photos - I took nearly 15 rolls of film when I went to Greece a few years ago!! :-) (I'm still using an SLR with 28-300mm lens, although when I go to Turkey next year I'm going to have to buy a Digital-SLR because there's no way I'll be able to get the film developed while I'm in Turkey).
Photography for me, and capturing all of the images that I SEE while I'm out in the world, is like my journal - in fact it's much better than writing in a journal - because the images take me back to the places in a way the words can't. [Although, I DO journal also. :-) Photos are just MUCH more important to me.]
OOOOH! Turkey sounds fantastic. Which part of the country will you be visiting? I've always wanted to see the Hagia Sofia.
