Hi from Aggieland, Texas

Hi there.

My name is Allen, and I'm just now getting back in photography. Somehow, it was a lot easier some ... Wow! ... 30 years ago! I started with Mom's K-1000 when I was in junior high, and received my very own K-1000 when I graduated high school.

A few years back, I upgrades to the K-20, and I'm just now able to fine a little time to begin figuring out what it can do.
I'm open to any and all pointers / tips / recommendations you want to throw my way. It's probably been close to 20 years since I've done much with the camera other than just playing with it, so if you want to treat me like a newbie, I PROMISE you won't hurt my feelings!

- Allen

That would be an understatement!
Oh my freaking word! It's sad how much I've forgotten! And truly staggering how much I never knew!!

I almost feel like a kid in a candy store ... with his parents credit cards.
(My apologies if this is a double post - the computer has been a bit wonky lately.)

Welcome aboard, you wish, your nearly full veteran status with your length of Pentax service, no concessions for you I'm afraid.

Well, when I started, I was a teenager, so I knew everything. :-)

And with me using next to nothing over the last 20 years ... well, I'm not going to swear to anything.
