Another Pentax fan - from Perth

Hi Fellow Pentax Forumers,
I have been lurking around reading all the useful information on the site for long enough to join and introduce myself. I'm fairly new into the game but pretty addicted to Pentax considering I'm a newbie.

I learnt a little bit in the past from having a film K1000 and last year took a photography unit for a bit of fun while studying less fun stuff - the school cameras were *ists so when I came around to getting my own I went with Pentax too, a K-X, mostly drawn in by the idea of using cheaper old MF lenses. I sold the K-X to get a K-5 a few months ago, I think because I thought I wanted audio-in, you know, just in case. The K-5 locked me in for life I think, it's just awesome.

I also took a punt on a Q when I saw one for $200 and happened to have $200 on me, best $200 I have ever spent.

I would like to use this growing collection to take gritty street shots and footloose exotic travel-type photos, but alas, I'm a student and in Perth, when I'm not studying I have to make do with shooting countless photos of my cats, pretty flowers and park shots for now

Cheers for your great site, I'll be sure to add reviews of the lenses and cameras I have got so far,

Hi Judges,
that's a fine B&W of Lake Jualbup in Shenton Park (or am I mistaken? ). Either way, I must admit I spent many hours around Perth with my old Pentax MZ-50 catching the cockatoos and parrots! Heading back there later this year and taking new K30 with me - very excited
