Hello from New Zealand

Hi all,

Thought it about time that I signed up and introduced myself. I'm Richard and, along with my wife Fleur, we enjoy photography and use Pentax cameras. For a long time this consisted of just a K100D, but we now use a K-30.
Like many we 'found' Pentax cameras from 'back in the film days' and carried this through into the digital era.

Oh, and yeah, we live in New Zealand. We've been on the UK Pentax forum for a while but have been checking on articles here also. We live in Palmerston North, which is towards the lower end of New Zealand's North Island. Jeremy Clarkson just made reference to it, and in much nicer terms than John Cleese did.

Subject matter is often our two little girls, but landscapes/nature shots tend to be the main interests. Practising new ideas a bit and I enjoy video production also.

Anyhow, I'm happy to share some of the scenery from 'down here' and appreciate the info you have given me already. Thanks!

Regards,
Richard Jackson.

Welcome, indeed, from the South Island of Australia!

Contributions from the Antipodes seem to somewhat outweigh the relative numbers here. I'm glad you're finding the Forums helpful.

Hi all, thanks for the quick welcome replies.

Cheers, will head over to the Pentaxian corner...

Hey there to you both, Richard & Fleur and welcome. I know Palmie - I'm a Seattle native but spent the better part of a year and a half in Wellington and have a couple friends from right up there with you. I've a good bit of ink on my leg, a tui piece that Tim Hunt did down in Paekakariki. Anyhow - enjoy the information and sometimes insanity!

Thanks,
