Thank God for weather seals
Posted By: ronald_durst, 06-16-2008, 06:15 PM

I shot a festival in my hometown for a guy who does a magazine for the festival every year. This was my 3rd time shooting for him but my first time shooting for him with my pentax. He was impressed by my camera with 18-250 and grip. Then when i gave him the cd of the photos he wanted....he was very impressed.

Anyway here are some pics of the cookoff winner while he was opening a bottle of champagne. He didnt like the first little spray he got so he shook it up more. You shouldve seen everyone backing up worrying about their cameras. I didnt back up because i knew, to put it simply, i had a pentax.

you weren't worried about it getting in the 18-250, and gumming up the AF?
