    Great photos!

    I noticed you’re using the Pentax quite a bit; have you fully transitioned, or do you still plan on using the Canon from time to time.

    Thanks, Paul! Nope, I still use all my cameras. Pentax, Canon, Nikon, Panasonic. I do like the K-5 very much, however. The sensor has fantastic dynamic range and the lenses are quite sharp.

    Thanks, everyone! Hanna, I took these very early morning on a Sunday. Fine, I don’t know what blossoms these are. Everyone here just refers to them as, “cherry blossoms.”
