Food: I had a venison burger. The venison came from Russelleville, Arkansas since my relatives shoot stuff but not with Hocir's. My family went to visit and brought some back for me. Real tasty it was with grilled onions and bell pepper topping it. Not just tasty, it was excellent.


Venison burger?


I'm envious!




But.


Pictures, or it didn't happen.

I don't care what brand is on the front of my camera. I've owned a lot of Ricoh film cameras. Immense amounts of features for the dollars.

I take pictures with my cameras. I'm not trying to impress anyone.

OK.




Welcome to the clubhouse!


And, I see you are recently back to Pentax. Welcome back!










I must say, I am very much in agreement with your comments. Making a great photograph cannot be done with equipment alone. Skilled hands and a good eye are essential.









Still, I will not buy a K3.

Welcome! Now what are your thoughts on cheese,bacon, lutefisk(eww), industrial accidents and little blue pills??

On the theme of accidents, we had a hapless fellow try to kill himself with a forklift at my work once. Lost control, spun it and pinned himself between the lift and some racking. How? we have no idea. But you don't lock horns with 9,000 lbs and walk away! Lucky dude survived with a crushed chest, collapsed lung, permanent health issues and according to him total loss of performance!

A dude in Florida didn't like his mugshot that was being posted
So he took a selfie and sent it to the police with the message "Here is a better photo that one is terrible."
He has since been apprehended.

I hope Mr. Pugh gets his life and legal problems straightened out, but I have to agree - that was an awful picture, and the selfie was better. I'm still trying to figure out this statement:

“Man, they just did me wrong,” Pugh said in a radio interview, according to LimaOhio.com. “They put a picture that made me look like I was a Thundercat or something.”

BTW, Canon did not always have the stature that it does now. Back when, it was definitely second and third tier to Nikon. Like Minoltas.
You impressed Otis!

Otis advises.......When you open your eyes....you can see things!



Save it....same cash/prize value as his other awards! Of course, if you get confused, you may never find it!

Best Regards!

You are speaking from experience, no doubt?

And,

Holy crap! I stopped following this forum months ago, since I didn't have a K-3. Now I see this thread is still alive
