First post here on this blog

Hi there,
this is going to be my first post on this blog: . My name is Adrian Alexa and I am from Oradea, Romania. I am 25 years old. I work as a web developer. Photography is my hobby.

Even though I am a Romanian I will write my posts in English only. I may say that my English is not an excellent one, I might make grammar mistakes or expressions, words, phrasing. However I will try not. I will also appreciate your corrections, especially if they are well addressed. I decided to start writing posts in English so I will improve my English, also.
I can say that I can't find a date when suddenly I became in love with photography but I was attached to it since my childhood. I wished to have a camera since I was a kid but did not have the possibility to buy one.
However by God's grace in 2005 in my summer holiday I worked part time, gain some money and there I was :) My first camera: Nikon Coolpix 4100. It was an excellent one. I have lots of memories. I can not tell you now. Making shorter the story, my second camera was a Canon S5 IS. Again great memories, they all helped me to learn a lot of photography. I can not say that now I am a professionist, but I learned a little.
Continuing my story, in 2010 I bought my last camera for now: Canon 450D with a kit lens 18-55mm. I also bought a 17-85 mm IS. Lately a 50 mm 1.8 and a Canon 430EX II Speedlite. This is my gear for the moment. I decided to buy them all as used products. It is indeed a big decision to buy a new or used camera/lens. So far I had just a small issue with my lens 17-85 mm but it was solved.
So, what I am going to write here? As I like very much nature photography, landscapes and other categories I will want to post them here occasionally. I want to share my creation. Why? The answer is why should I keep pictures only on my hard drive :) ?
Stay close and until my next post be well. I will have to decide which images to be my first series.
