Hello from Bellingham

I'm a new to me Panasonic LX3 owner. I'm also a regular over at the sister site mu-43.com. I've been dabbling with photography for years. I started my photographic life with a Canonet QL17 and an Olympus 35RC back in the 90's and have been hooked on rangefinders ever since.

As I approach the half century mark I find that I enjoy documenting my explorations and travels more than I enjoy pixel peeping so I find that small and versatile is what i want most in a camera(s). Living in the Pacific NW I have a number of opportunities for interesting stuff to photograph (although outdoor photography can be quite the challenge given the looooong rainy winter).

I'm currently in the midst of a picture a day challenge that you can take a look at here. Most of the shots are with my EPL-1 but I'm starting to use the LX3 for the images as well.

I think I'm up to day 43...but I did lose count somewhere along the way. At least I'm keeping the spirit of the challenge going. It is a good deal harder than I thought it would be...but also rewarding.

G'day from a fresh face from Down Under.

Welcome mate. Great place this....so look forward to enjoying your company and 'war' stories.

Funny you mention the 'photo-a-day' challenge. I started this over at another site - it's for one of the big clunky cameras so I don't fear too much competition but would rather not mention their name on here (saving me a little embarrassment I suppose) . It was a great way to develop skills - both photographically and socially. The "Single in [insert name of month here]" challenges still continue to this day...and there's a few photo books spawned from them. Might be good to start the same challenges on here.....if that's technically possible?
