New ol' codger on the block

Hi all - 35mm Pentax enthusiast, wit, raconteur and general bon viveur. Been picking up tips by lurking for 4 years and finally decided to come in from the cold as I now have increasing time for photography (my sporting activities have given me up!)
Mainly a motorsport photographer but love the London Cityscape too.

Welcome to the forum. You sound like me, I spent years watching the threads here. Now I have found it much more enjoyable to actually participate!! You must have unlimited potential for photo's in London. I got a friend who's seriously into British cars. Maybe it's because he's from London! In fact he flies a British flag on his house and has "Paul Revere was a snitch" on his mail box!!

Hi! I don't have to say enjoy the forum as you seems to be already at home
So you are shooting only 35mm film for now or you already stepped up and got some digital camera ? In either case what is/or would your choice be ?

Post us some of those motorsport shoots of yours too - I don't mind London Cityscape too as in spite of living here I don't have much opportunities to go out and shoot in City.

Welcome aboard !

Hi first image posted in the slr Film shots thread. Thanks for the welcome
Should've answered Manntax' question too-
Entirely 35mm from my Pentax collection although I do have a Fuji point and shoot digi which I enjoy seeing what I can get with it
If I did move to digital I'd go for a 2nd hand KR a) to experiment with my existing K mount lenses and b) it seems to meet my limited requirements
