Snuck a snapshot into the PPG... my first with the 77 Limited!
Posted By: hamidlmt, 04-25-2009, 04:13 AM

It's weird when there are a couple AF-540's firing into an umbrella sitting around and a fan blowing at your subject during such candid moments.

Shot with the K20D and the lens I began lusting after before I even had a Pentax camera body, the FA 77mm 1.8 Limited. All of the examples I had seen from you good forum members, those couple of years ago helped firmly sway me towards Pentax. I know I've only begun to unlock the potential of this lens! It will not stray far from the 31mm Limited.

Gosh.. thanks everyone! I have been lurking lately. Just haven't had much time to get my thoughts down in a post and respond to so many incredible photos that I see from the forum.

I have also been looking at how I was expressing my critiques and have been working on a way to soften, encourage and inspire, still delivering truthful feedback. And, learning to accept and learn from the feedback given to me. I have been learning how to listen, talking to so many teachers, from so many walks of life, in my local community.

I appreciate you all, even if we haven't connected on the forum. Everyone here loves these kooky Pentax cameras! This glass captures our unique experiences! And, I'm really proud to be a part of our global Pentax tribe!

wow. you have an amazing collection of shots in PPG. several of those have jumped out at me in the past while casually flipping through the gallery and i didnt realize they were taken by the same photographer. really inspiring work, Hamid.
