Me too, it's spelled Takumar.

That's a big water tank, how do you fill it?

water tank is the main storage tank. all rainwater is collected from the house into a smaller metal water tank before being pumped up to the big one.

I'll have to try squash that way.
I also really like that lightbulb shot Tom!
Slice em, a little olive oil to keep them from burning, and seasoning, good stuff.

These are all cool shot of everyday things, but the clothesline shot really stands out, I think it's all the colors and the colorful background too. Nice job.

Thanks Tom

I'm glad you like it too. It's one of my favourites mainly because of the colours and the background. I almost put it into the World Pentax Day collection, but I silly-illy asked wolfieboy to help me narrow my pictures down to 5 and that one didn't make it. The look of confusion on his face when I showed it to him told me all I needed to know.

Guess it goes to show, sometimes we should just go with gut feeling. At least we all have each other on this thread eh? We understand each other..

i love your work jools! what lenses are you using for those shots? love the water drip on the kitchen utensil. the nostalgic feel on the pots is nice and the pen is SUPER cool. i'm going to have to revisit my pencil tin at work now.

i can see it now - boss works in, "have you got that repo... what on EARTH are you doing??"
/me looks up from camera with macro lens attached to extension tube and bellows aimed at pencil tin

*snarf*

Thanks Wolfiegirl, my wife will be happy. I drive her nuts taking images of things around the house.

The spatula was taken with a Porst Weitwinkel Auto F 28mm f2.8 (K mount) that I purchased here on PF from a fellow Aussie (a beautiful little lens).
The flower pots were taken with a Sears 55mm f1.4 (m42) (one of my favorite lenses)
The pens were taken with a Rodenstock Rogonar-S 75mm f 4.5 (m39) (enlarger lens) on a bellows. (sharp as a tack)

Buying used most of the time. Why reinvent the wheel.

Here's another from last year.
