Hi from NC

Hi, all, just joined after reading all the great info and discussions here for months. Originally from MA & NH, but now in NC. A member of the Pentax family 30+ years ago when I bought the ME super, which served me well for many, many years. Then went through a few point and shoot digital cameras, but looking to get back on the Pentax bandwagon with the K-5 ii. Like taking photos of birds, flowers, landscapes, people, etc. Am also intrigued by some of the astro photography here.....

Thanks to all for sharing your knowledge, opinions, and photos!

Welcome to the forum, I've not a clue as to where you been or where you are now, I can only take an uneducated guess as to the meaning of all these short codes, but at least you made it here.

Well, Kerrowdown...

MA == Master of Arts - that's an academic degree that Cambridge Univ is dooling out. Obviously, this chap was born in your neck of the woods (duck for cover...)
NC == No Connection - so obviously, there's something of a free spirit in this chap
NH == the airline code for All Nippon Airways.

So, my deciphering is that the OP is:

"a Cambridge educated hippie flight-attendant from Japan"

Do I get a cookie now?

To the original poster, all kidding aside, welcome to the forum. Not everybody are crazy here, or so I'm told

Hmm...

You don't need to duck you've kept you location suitably vague with EU, I have no idea where to send the hate mail.

Hey, Kerrowdown, I'm in the ol' USA, but both my grandfather's are from Scotland: Alloa and Dumfries. I've been to Dumfries and see the address where my maternal grandfather was born and raised.
