Hello from a Michigan 30+year Pentax user

It's about time I got here! I can't wait to dig through the forum chatter! I am hoping to learn a lot and find a bevy of new Pentax friends.

Welcome to the madness. What part of Northern Michigan you from, the real northern part or the tourist northern part?

Hey welcome... the chatter is well , chatter, but I really like the photo sharing forums, Don't get me wrong, I like a good discussion as much as anyone (and I love saying "I can't come to bed yet honey, someone on the internet is wrong." but, it's the pictures that make the place special. That and the endless amounts of useful advice every time you freak and think you're stumped.

Thanks for the welcome Tim. Sorry, it took me so long to respond. I am living in the inland, middle part of Michigan. Big Rapids. I spent time living on South Padre Island and have had studios in California, and Oregon. Big Rapids is not touristy but I do love the tourist communities.

I hope I have something to share. The "young guns", as I have heard them called, seem to not want to hear from older photographers...they just want us to get out of the way. lol

My first and my second Pentax were k-1000's. I am guessing you are in the Saginaw-Midland area. I am in a group of all Canon/Nikon users but I have been a loyal Pentax user for my entire career and see no reason to change.
