Perry’s Monochrome Images

About bwpc

bwpc = Black & White Perry Carmichael. That’s me and this is my monochrome site. I am a writer, sculptor, philosopher, traveler,…….  Oh, wait, that’s some one else. I am a community college teacher, husband, father, amateur photographer, motorcycle enthusiast and sometimes webmaster. I have always been into technology and photography for just about for ever. My first computer was a Commodore VIC 20 back in 1983. I have no idea the number computers I have owned or built. My first camera was a Yashica FR. I don’t remember why I sold it, but my next camera was a Pentax MX and that was my favorite camera for many years. I started playing with photography in 1974, in high school, as the newspaper and annual photographer. In college I was the staff photographer for a year and the photo editor for a year. I have been published a few times (one cover that I no longer have) always wanted to work in the industry but I am a poor marketer. So I blog in the digital age.

I am on my 4th interchangeable lens digital camera, a Pentax Q. It is a great little camera that is truly pocketable and fun to play with. I use it mostly as a toy. My other “current” camera is the Pentax K-7. While I would like a little better low light performance (k-5?), I love the ergonomics. It is a great piece of hardware and I’ll likely keep it until it wears out. Prior to this is a Pentax K10D (still have it but I kinda broke it), and my first was a Sigma SD9. All are excellent cameras but the Pentax line better suits my style. If my style included lot’s of cash I would likely find the Nikon D3 or D700 to suit it! But no. 🙂 If you have something to say, feedback to give or other comments, please do. Also please visit my other blog at http://perry-myworld.blogspot.com/

Also, if you are curious, visit our local camera club, the Valley Viewfinders. If you are a photographer in the area or just passing through and have a free Thursday night, please feel free to drop in.
