A few of still life pictures.
Lens: tamron 90mm f2.8 macro Camera: K-1 Photo Location: my house 
Posted By: micromacro, 06-06-2018, 04:13 PM

It's been raining endlessly for almost a month, and indoor shooting helped to save my sanity
The last one is Canon, only because someone gave me the Canon lens mug as a gift. I wish it would be Pentax mug.

The composition is not what I like, and I need to re-think the concept, but that little Spotmatic is the sexiest camera ever It's so photogenic.
Thank you!

Agreed, but I would prefer the Pentax one without the strap.

I always thought the Screw Leicas were the nicest cameras ever as their body really follows the Bauhaus Form and Function doctrine.

Raining for a month and I always though Florida was wall to wall sunshine, except for the odd hurricane of course.

Very nice website by the way.

Leicas are very sexy cameras for sure, but they are out of my price range.

Here is some ugly truth about Florida: it's not always a lovely sunshine here, and when it sunny after showers it's more like a sauna. Winters are awesome however.

Thanks for comments on my website, I can't believe I finally figured out how to build it. What a pain it is

Well current ones unless you win the lotto but as any digital camera is just a computer which has already been superseded by the time it reaches the shops I wouldn't buy one.

But not that bad actually if you are happy to shoot, I paid €120 for a 1951 IIc with the previous owners name scratched off the bottom plus another €190 for a CLA, I was never so disappointed when I actually held an M3, it was so big, heavy and ugly compared to the screw mount ones which fit perfectly into your hands.

Thank you.
There are still lots of things to figure out, but at least I finished with the main body. It took about two weeks and $100 for touchpad to make the logo, but I can't imagine how I used to live without touchpad before I can recommend Autodesk Sketchbook program for making logos on budget, the program is very easy to learn.

The most difficult part is photo selection, I had no idea.

Without this forum, all of you, I would drop this hobby long time ago.
I was absolutely sure that it's impossible to learn so much. Then I bought old K200D , found this community, and... still here
