Hello From south of France

Hello People,
I registred to this forum few days ago, because this thread helped me a lot to fix a K100D Super I bought for very little money because it was said to be broken.
Maybe the picture of this "capacitor fix" will help someone else one of this days ?
Anyway, this picture is the last I took with my good old second hand Nikon Coolpix 4500
As I love vintage technological stuffs, I bought some manual prime lenses to use with the K100D. I received a Pentax-A 50/1.7 this week, and some M42 are on there way. In the following weeks, I hope to have fun with :
- a SMC Takumar 50/1.4
- a Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 35/2.8
- a Jupiter 37A
I never took a lot a picture over the time, but I played a lot with a cheap 6x6 camera 20 years ago. I found an old Industar 50-2 some gave me at this time, and I guess it's time for it to be used
Here is a picture I took today with the A, hope some will like it.

Welcome! Great story. I like the photo, and what you did, even though I cannot say I understand it all. My wife is from Toulouse, by the way, and I love the south of France. Have fun with those lenses (good glass there) and the K100D. I look forward to more photographs!

I used to live near Toulouse, it's a very nice city. Now one hour north of Montpellier, in the Cévennes area : no big city but big landscapes
