Q: Choosing a Pentax prime lens

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

The cleanup began the next day on what was left of my neighbors home after an f-3 tornado touched down on March 2, 2012. This home was less than 200 yards from mine. We received minor damage to our home and we lost one of our barns. Nine homes in my neighborhood were destroyed,but a miracle happened this day too. Only one person had minor injuries from this tragedy. Although my neighbors home was destroyed, I am very happy to say that a brand new beautiful home now sits in its place.
