Hello from Australia

Hi EveryoneJust bought a second hand Pentax K-r and I'm completely new to Pentax & photography (except point & shoot). I got the K-r becuase my daughter suggested it was best since my wife had an old K1000 with some lenses that are compatible with the K-r. I'm a beginner so I won't be sharing my wisdom unless you feel it's important for a beginner mind to comment. I have a blog and on it I have posted photos I took with my old instamatic that I kinda "enhanced" with photoshop. Here's the link if you are interested 4 days to freeze Mubarak’s billions! | Journeys and Star Gazing looking forward to engaging with you and learning from you.all the best stavros

Was in Brisbane, Australia, for a quick business trip a short while back.

Didn't dare go into any bars, even on my nights off: they all had a sign outside reading "Pokies and Poles" I figure that being in a bar with Aussies involves being poked with (hopefully not too pointy) poles. That's a *little* outside of my comfort zone, and a *lot* away from being my idea of a good way to wind down after a hard day....

I'll let the Kerrowdown pop off with our new Aussie friend on the forum (welcome) and report back. The Kerrowdown's kind have interesting bar-habits also, and so he might just be the man to sort this out.

Don't forget that we *love* to see pictures here, and that Australia is a spectacular country that most of us long to spend time in, so no excuses for sharing....
