it was a sad day last week when the unforgiving atlantic tide came up and quietly took away my dear old K20d and its companion sir 18-250mm! 20 000 pictures it took before nature had its way! however its passing has led to new and better days as the K-7 proudly picks up the torch and marches onward toward new and exciting photo opportunities. yet as a tribute it's only fitting that the first two images taken by the successor pay respect to it's predecessor, struck down in it's prime, well before its time. and then... onward to more interesting subjects, like a lightbulb... ooo shiney!!
