47 Years of Pentax SLR

As my user name implies, I've been in photography since 1960. All of my SLR's have been Pentax from a gently used 1959 Highland Pentax H2 to my current K10D. A K5 is next on my impossible dream list.

I grew up in Denver where I lived near and visited the importer's offices. First it was Highland, then Honeywell and finally Pentax USA.

The Pentax addiction is hard to kick: first a body and lens, then more lenses, then a newer body, then better lenses & flashes, and so you're hooked.

I do semi-pro wedding and event photography as well as being the church photographer where I attend. We have a photowalk group at my church providing good opportunities for personal work and for helping other members of the group.
