This is London Calling

Cor blimely guv. I've been lurking for a while but have just signed up. Initially to post a little feedback on the new 20-40mm but who knows in the future. Mainly a street shooter I've also done some wildlife, a wedding, some portrait work and commercial promotional materials in the past. Favorite photog : colour me Alex Webb with a side order of William Eggleston. Have been shooting Pentax through the K200 through, K7 to K5. I've also played around with an ME Super and have an ongoing project to fix up an MX.

Hi everyone, hope your all having a good evening, morning, afternoon (dependent on time-zone). Thanks to all those active posters who have unknowingly given me such great information and insight in the past - high fives.

Welcome aboard, I'd like to think that I might have been one of those folk, but I know in my heart that was highly unlikely.

A London dude? Now, there's a culturally mixed greeting, if ever I heard one! Welcome to Pentax Forums (officially, obviously, as you've been looking for a fair while, already). Just be wary of kerrowdown, as his style of street shooting can turn an incautious head, from time to time.

Hi kerrowdown and RobA_Oz and many thanks for the warm welcome. There is some great quality shooting here that's for sure. Hopefully I can contribute a little from my end once I get up and running.

Dude:

1. Informal An Easterner or city person who vacations on a ranch in the West.
2. Informal A man who is very fancy or sharp in dress and demeanor.
3. Slang
a. A man; a fellow.
b. dudes Persons of either sex.


So I guess I fall in to 3.a here (need to buy some new threads). I used to live in west London but not on a ranch. On the flipside I did spend a little of my (mis)spent youth backpacking way back in the day and The Big Lebowski is a damn fine film

Bonjour Jean Poitiers and many thanks for the welcome. The ME Super is indeed a fine camera. Stick it in AUTO and you've got aperture priority. The viewfinder has a great size to brightness trade off and the body has good, solid, and simple ergonomics. What's not to like .

ME Super-londres says Hi. I have noticed that back in the early 80's folks tended to leave the stickers on - kinda like it myself

Is that a compliment of sorts?

Some pics from Rome a couple of years ago

Lots of work to do my end on the curation side. Given it's not going to get sorted any time soon thought I'd grab an old series of shots to say Hi (could benefit from some modern PP methinks and they are tighter shots than I tend to shoot these days).

You can ask that, after Bazooka Betty?
