JUST JOINED but no stranger to Pentax

Perhaps I have the distinction of being one of the few people around who started using Pentax camera's almost 50 years ago. My first camera was a Pentax 35mm film camera bought in 1958 and I loved it. I had it several years and then went to the next Pentax model. After that I branched out into other 35mm cameras like Minolta, then to a 2 1/4 Minolta, then to 4x5's and ultimately to an 8x10. When I moved into digital cameras in 2000 I started with Nikon and then 2 years ago to a K-20D, returning to my brand of origin. It is a great camera but I can't wait to see what they make next.

So I have been a fine art photographer for nearly 50 years and have exhibited a lot of places in the US and Europe .....
San Francisco Museum of Modern Art,
O.K. Harris Gallery, New York
Chicago Art Institute
No. Carolina School of Design
Studio 666, Paris, FRANCE
Gallerie Artoque, Lyon, FRANCE
Photogaleria 68, NETHERLANDS

to name a few.

Hello and welcome Stan!

I hope that in 50 years I will be able to join a forum (or whatever replaced forums) just like you and the people that I've been photographing for 50 years with Pentax.

I'm really looking forward to your contributions.
