Took a quick overview of this web site and I really like it. I look forward to coming here often. My interest in photography is a very personal thing - it's a connection to my father who passed away two years ago at the age of 92, and who loved technology and gadgets. He loved his Minolta SR-101 and loved taking photos of family. Maybe it's a genetic thing - who knows - but it's definitely a feeling of connectedness (is that a word?) to my father when I pick up the camera. I am a believer in Einstein's famous quote: "Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler." So I am looking to get the most out of a real photography hobby, with minimal equipment. In fact, I've been looking for resources on people who take great pictures using only a point and shoot (okay, maybe an expensive, advanced point and shoot). If anyone knows of web sites or sources on that, please post them! Thanks for having such a great site.
