Hi from Kalgoorlie, Western Australia

Hi, My name is Wazza. I thought it was time to introduce myself. I have logged on to the pentax forums a few times and have enjoyed everyone's beautiful photos as well as the technical info which has helped me a lot.

Lately I thought I might get back into some macro photography so I attached my old screw mount lens (50mm 1.4) to an old extension tube and an adapter ring to fit my K20D. I managed to be able to get it working on aperture priority and went outside this morning to take a couple of snaps of flowers. I was pleased with the result as i stopped it down and took it at 1/200 (hand held) because the wind was blowing slightly. Nothing flash but I hope you like it.

By the way the lens and the extension tube was from my father's old Spotmatic (1967) I think. Also the yellow line in the photo is a cobweb covered in pollen.

Have a great day

Hi wazza.
G'day from Wangaratta (Vic).
Welcome to the Forum. As you have found the forum is a great place to browse and learn.
The yellow line on the pic would make a good discussion point.
