Dear friends,

My name is Marco de Boer, 49 years young, a Dutch photographer, and collector of camera's and I play and create music. I am married and have 2 children, a 7 year old girl and a 4 year old boy. Both of them are my favorite subjects of photography.

Although winning a K3 sounds very attractive, I am mostly taking pictures with analogue Pentax camera's. I have 4 analogue Pentax camera's and at the moment I am taking pictures with a Pentax MV with an SMC Pentax-M 50 mm f/2.

But I am not brand-crazy, I love taking pictures, the camera itself is subordinate to the picture I want to take. I am in the position to look at the situation and choose (of the camera's I own off course) the camera what is most usable in that situation.

Often for portraits I use my Canon EOS 5Dc with a 85mm f/1.8 and for faster action I use the Nikon D7100 or the older D300. For slow photography I use the analogue pentax camera's or a Nikkormat or a Canon AE1 or a Olympus OM-10. The oldest camera in my collection is a Kodak Regent II from 1935.

So I hope to post some pictures here and enjoy the pictures of others.

Yeah thanks, but when nobody likes the picture, it will be over soon I think. Not my contribution to this site, but in the contest.
