Hi all
New member to the site and somewhat new to photography. I've been taking photos with my P&S cameras over the last few years and got an XTI this past Christmas. In college(many years ago) I was a Fine Arts major focusing on drawing and painting and after so many years away from the art world, I find that photography is a nice outlet for me... a great way to escape and satisfy my artistic side.

There are so many great photographers here and I hope in time to get to know, and learn, from some of you.

Aloha from Hawaii...Mark
