Andy, this is a nice, gritty series that provides a feeling of . . . . . desperation? Anyway, it's very well done, in my view. I particularly like the barrel shot for some reason.

Thanks Pablom - it is something I've started to incorporate into my personal website and display of my work for sale. I think it keeps a connection between the 'series' and my intentions as the viewer reads the titles, views the work, etc. I'm also working on my second publication which will include many of the titles I give my work.

I like the series, great use of the lens...
This one has been on my mind for a while now, but I may have to wait for a while longer to get it....

Thanks guys - the comments are appreciated. The lens is certainly a classic and a bit hard to find, but well worth it - it's one I won't part with until I see an AF replacement from Pentax.

Everything FA is AF - including all the FA*'s. Just went out of production so quick people forgot about it. And by "AF replacement" - I mean a good, fast 24 that is AF. There are quite a few 20-something lenses that are quite nice, but not AF and not very fast.

Thankya friend - I will certainly check out your work; it appears we may have a similar 'eye', if you will.
