Hi, my name is Lowell, my love for photography(and Pentax) has been rekindled after 20yrs+ full time job, six kids & health problems. My first camera was a Kodak Brownie. My second was a foldout camera I bought in San Diago for $8. I knew nothing about f-stops, dof, or shutter speeds, however Kodak had little exposure guide printed on the film box(inside). One of the best pictures ever was a couple of boys fishing on the dock through the cracks. I would love to have that photo back. My 3rd was an Argus C3, I loved that little camera, then I purchased a Practika with a Carl Zeis lens, beautiful pictures, however it was stolen, after that I bought a Pentax MX and I became a Pentaxion. I just bought a Pentax K1000. just to say I own one and to use as a second, one for B&W and one for color. I also have an Olympus F-180 to carry in my pocket. I love film,especially B&W, I would rather practice photography behind the camera instead of behind a computer. There are advantages of digital though and will probably get a Pentax soon. I like that yellow one. Sorry for the long intro, but I am rather excited at this.

Welcome aboard! And thanks for the intro! There are still people here enjoying film shooting. I myself miss the "magic" of working in the darkroom, but the advantages of digital won me over. It does lead to too much time at the computer, though.
