2000 Days, 2000 Posts & 2000 Thanks! (Plus 10 highlights.)
Camera: K-3 Photo Location: Around Montréal 
Posted By: Doundounba, 06-19-2018, 07:47 PM

Hi all,

I recently hit 2000 days on the forum, and this is my 2000th post, so I wanted to give 2000 thanks to all forum members!

I got into digital photography with a K-01 after inheriting some Adaptall lenses from my father and looking for a body I could use them on. I registered here while the camera was on its way to me, and ever since then the participants on this forum have been a major part of why it's been so much fun to shoot with the K-01 first, and now with a K-3. I'm not the most frequent poster here by a long shot - some who have arrived well after me seemed to hit the 2k mark incredibly quickly! - but I've enjoyed the experience of sharing my photographs, and have benefited immensely from the knowledge and the artistry that is shared so generously on this forum on a daily basis.

So I guess what I'm trying to say is:
Code:
% perl -e '$i=0; while ($i<2000) { print "Thank you!\n"; $i++;}'
Here are 10 highlights from the 1147 photos I've published since starting to shoot Pentax. They are the ten that most jumped out at me as I looked at my photo roll (on Flickr) to prepare this post, and are in no particular order. I seem to have specialized in macro, with a soft spot for the occasional urban landscape...

Very nice photos! And a perfect 1 post per day, must be hard to keep exactly...?
Thanks for sharing, and I laughed at the line of code

It's not something I aimed for, it just turned out that way. I seem to be slowing down these days actually, as I used to be more around 1.1 post per day a few months back. I think I've stopped paying as much attention to the rumors section. (Probably a good thing! )

Are we allowed to bump our own photo threads to get a few more views?

Not only I think you're allowed, but I'm actually grateful you did, since this is really an awesome collection of shots - and I missed it the first time around.

I can't even begin to pick a favorite (and that's not the point of it), so congratulations on a job well done!

Thanks so much! To be fair, they are a few highlights from several years of shooting (and probably at least 100k actuations over two bodies), so one would expect them to be at least not that bad!

Just the fact that you shot that many is an achievement in its own right
