A return to youth!

Hey Everyone,

In Junior High I was a member of the photo club and loved everything about photography. Sadly my parents were not as enthusiastic and discouraged me from such an "expensive" hobby. They did buy me a 110 camera but within a couple years I left photography behind.

Recently I decided to pick up where I left off and am now pursuing this hobby again.

I used to drool over the Pentax K1000 so that's why I thought I'd enjoy this forum! I just received a mint Fed 2 (seemed like a cool camera, or am I crazy?) in perfect working order and I am working on my first roll of film.

I'm looking forward to learning from all of you!
