Howdy! Newbie in Los Angeles

I shot thousands of pictures with a K1000 when I was younger. After a long break from photography, I finally bought a Canon EOS 70D. After only a month of digital photography, I really wanted my old Pentax back. After a slight buying spree on eBay, I am now equipped with a pile of K & M bodies and an odd assortment of glass.

In the old days, all I had was the K1000 and a nifty-fifty. Point, adjust, shoot. I had never put that much effort into the artistic or technical aspects. Now I find myself doodling charts of aperture diameters and light columns. Planning a picture is as much fun as making a picture.

When I'm indoors, I'm taking macro-pics of everything from orchids to circuit boards. Outdoors, I'm a bit shy with the camera. Ducks, trains, palm trees.

The information in your posts on Pentax Forums has helped me immensely. Thank you for your knowledge and insight.

Thanks. I have joined the SoCal group. It looks like you guys have already stomped around my neighborhood (DTLA, Olvera, Chinatown, Echo Park) quite a bit. I hope to join in soon.

Welcome to the forum, you'll need to explain to us all how that works, for most folk here it's always a "full on" LBA buying mode.
