I happened to be walking down the sidewalk when a few of the memory walkers were approaching me so I grabbed a few pictures. I liked their shirts this year. They matched the Clematis growing on our mailbox.
And talking about memories, I am having happy memories of my days photographing with the Pentax K-5 and the 55 – 300 mm lens. I loved that setup but ultimately decided that it was too heavy since I was having trouble with the arthritis in my back, knees, and hands. I tried many different lighter, smaller mirror-less cameras and lenses to replace the Pentax gear. I had some success with the mirror-less cameras and really enjoyed the lighter weight, but missed other things. In the next few weeks I am going to try going back to a Pentax DSLR, the K-3, and try to solve my issues with the weight in other ways. I’ll be letting you know how it goes; but, there may be no going back. Memories may be all there are; but, that is OK with me since I have two alternative plans for new cameras as I move forward.
