The leap of faith
Posted By: Deedee, 09-13-2014, 02:51 PM

I lost my job 31st July 2013, thinking I will be able to get a second job soon. I bought the Pentax in August the following month. It has been one year and I am broke. Contemplating to sell my camera for long now. Since this contest came out the idea to turn into professional photographer has come into my mind. If I win this lens I will turn to full time photography. I will let my 12 year old career in IT and Telecom disappear in thin air.

So winning this lens would actually decide if I enter photography as a career or not. I am attaching a picture which I recently took. Photography is my passion and after watching all the YouTube videos. Countless hours of discussion and reading Pentax Forums; watching movies like Baraka, Samsara, Chronos and Planet Earth (BBC series). I would really like to do something like that in life. It will be a dream come true.

Even if I don't win this contest I would try and keep my Pentax K-5 II for as long as I can. If I go silent on this forum, you would know, what happened. (189 words)
