Greetings from the Land of the Concrete Cows

A big 'Hello' from the Land of the Concrete Cows (just Google it).

I've been a Pentax user since the K110D came out and have had that, the K200D and finally the K5; I also use an X100 which I'm just getting to grips with.
When not photographing stuff you'll find me scouring the web for WW1 medals which I've been collecting for about 30 years as well as Scottish edged weapons, Vietnam War militaria and Fire Brigade memorabilia.

Hello Everyone! Great site this, looking forward to having a really good look around when I get some time.

Alan: I'm in the Wolverton area, but have lived in Fullers Slade (where troops do battle training ), City Centre, Newport and Coffee Hall.

Kerrow - By 'eck.....that's bright!

That'd be a certain supermarket chain then, would it?

Ash: Thanks

Alan: Yep, that's the one. Shut us down. after about 12 years, after promising the Council they'd be open for 25 years. Also promised the Council they'd always recruit from the local population......apparently 4 years ago 'local' included East Europe and not MK.
Yep, shut us down, made 800+ redundant and then will reopen this November..........
