Hi there! Barcelona's expat here, introduction and a few questions....

Hello again!

My name is Jordi, I am currently living in California. I wanted to go back to film photography for quite a while, and I got recently a k1000, with a 50mm 1.7 lens. Not only that,I got a second body on ebay plus a 200mm telephoto,a bag, a flash and a 50mm 2.0. I got this second pack for just 50 dollars, and it works as well! And since my wife is a fashion photographer, she's really getting into it too.

I have shot my first rolls recently, developing them at a local walgreens, as we are staying in a small town in central california and so far its our only choice. In a few weeks / months we will be moving to L.A, where I might try to learn how to develop my own C41 films. I have been posting the most interesting pictures on flickr

2012 - Pentax K1000 - a set on Flickr

I have removed the dust marks with photoshop, but I haven't altered the colours.

I have ordered more film rolls, both new and expired, including a pack of rolls that expired in 1995. I might be using some of them in my wife's shoots, I will keep you updated.

as for the question, I have a small problem: The aperture ring of my 50mm 1.7 is starting to move a bit roughly. I have to push it hard in order to move, and it worries that it might get stuck for good in the near future. Is here anything I can do to make it move smoothly?
