    I live in San Francisco, CA with my husband and our two cats.

    I've been shooting with mostly Canon DSLRs since the 10D came out. I just took the plunge into micro four thirds with the Olympus E-P3 in my quest to have a smaller kit to carry around with me more regularly. I have a lot to learn and get used to, but so far I'm really happy with my new camera.

    Despite my attempt to start slowly, I bought the E-P3 kit with the 17mm pancake, also bought the 12mm f/2.0 and pre-ordered the 45mm f/1.8.

    Most of my photography is currently centered around a big-headed, big-eyed doll named Blythe. You can see my recent photos on Flickr.

    Hi and welcome to the forum. This is a very friendly and helpful group here. Enjoy your new toys (and don't you think you need a PL25/1.4 now too? ;-) )

    Freaking me out!

    Dolls are creepy. Ever since Telly Savalas on Twilight Zone I just can't look at a doll and not get twitchy!

    Just yesterday my daughter showed a 'new' dolly she found ... I almost messed my britches - that thing looked EXACTLY like Talking Tiny.

    Oh yeah, welcome from (safely I hope) across the bay.

    Welcome! I really like some of the images of the doll. I wasn't aware of Blythe and the thriving community around it.

    Do you make the clothes yourself?
