I was very very daft. I never saw the potential nickname in my initials, "K C". It was so obvious, that my parents actually intended to call me that originally, spelled 'Kaycee'. But as my grandfather seemed to show up with a bat and ball and was going to 'tomboy' me, they scratched that idea very quickly.

Funny. I still grew up to be a tomboy.

However! The point is, for my online persona, I've decided it's a fitting name. So we'll stick with Kaycee for now.

I am an amateur photographer. Now that I've got that out of the way, I don't know what people would think when they see those two words together. I think I've had the time building up to it, but never had the equipment for it. I've had a love for design, did B&W photography in high school, used point and click cameras for years, experimented with poses and setup... but never had the chance to really get into it.

Until I got my Sony a100 in October 2007. That's when it all changed. (Man, I'm sounding like Torchwood now: 'That's when everything changes!')

Since then, I've made a vow to myself that I will continuously have my camera on me, so that I can try to photograph everything I see.

Allow me to introduce my cameras:

#1: My old baby- this is my Sony Cybershot DSC-P92. The first 5.0 megapixel camera in the Cybershot line. It's old, clunky, slow- but fantastic with color recognition. I've learned how to manipulate it to get fantastic results.

#2: My LGVX8100 Cell Phone. It has a 1.3 MP camera built into it. Great for quick shots when on the go~

#3: My Sony a100. A monster. 10.2 megapixel DSLR. I possess three lenses. A 35-70mm lens with macro settings, a 70-210mm telephoto lens, and a monstrous 1300mm telescopic... thing I got for Christmas. (Don't get me wrong. I love this lens to death! It's fantastic!) I've got a bunch of gear for it, and now I think I just need some experience.

#4: The first of my film SLRs. This is a Minolta XG-1. I purchased it over Craigslist, along with #5 and its lenses, for $100. This has the flash and two lenses, but I'm too lazy to look them up right now.

#5: The second of my film SLRs is a Minolta Maxxum 7000. First model with the autofocus feature. The lenses on my a100 both came from this camera. ...which is why I chose Sony over the other brands. I didn't want to give these lenses up. XD

Rules about my photos posted:
1) I take lots of photos. About 5% of what I take shows up here.
2) I will never post someone's face on this blog. What the heck? I do cosplay photography. This rule is very moot point. ~.~
3) If I take a photo of a location with a Texas (or National) Historic Marker, I will snap a photo of the marker with it.

Please ask me before taking any of my photos. A lot of hard work has gone into this gallery.
Please don't use my photos for commercial purposes, yadda yadda. You know this routine.
