Greetings from Oregon!

I've been lurking on these forums for about a month and created an account a few weeks ago. I've had an off-and-on interest in photography for years, but only in a 'serious' capacity for about 6 months. I've been happily taking pictures with an old manual SLR (a Ricoh Singlex II, and I replaced the light seals myself!), and while I still love it, I've decided to add a DSLR. After some research into using my old glass, I passed up Canikon for Pentax. Although I have only lurked, I really appreciate the helpfulness and friendliness in these forums. It actually turned into a selling point for Pentax for me. I may never ask a question (as I'm quite shy and more likely to search or fiddle with things before posting), but I feel like I'd get polite help if I had one here.

Welcome to the fourm. No need to be shy in asking questions. This is a good group of people. I have found them very willing to help.

Sometimes I'm not sure if it's shyness or just being so stubborn that I'm determined to figure it out on my own.

Thank you both for the welcome!

Hi, and welcome, arcanaemia. We just spent a few hours in Powell's when we were down on a trip in the fall. Also loved the Deschutes brewery! I bought my Pentax since that trip, so I'm looking to get back down. I know there is lots of info, help and advice here, so enjoy.

Deschutes is always worth a trip, as is Powell's! I'm looking forward to visiting lovely BC in later summer, with my Pentax in tow.
