Barefoot man from Philippines

Hi. I am new in this forum and let me introduce myself.

I am a Filipino about to turn senior citizen next year. I love photography since childhood. However, I am not a rich guy and I simply cannot afford yet a good quality DSLR camera until now. I only use a compact point-and-shoot digital camera that was given to me by a friend. Since that is all I got, I try to squeeze the most from my camera to take nice photos.

I am nicknamed Richard "paa". Richard is my real name and "PAA" is a Filipino word that means "FEET." Hence, I am Richard "Feet". Why do people call me that way? Because I am always BAREFOOT. Like I said I am not a rich guy. I don't even have a decent source of income even at my soon-to-become senior age. Yet, my passion to be able to take nice photos is truly great. Hence my reason for joining this forum.

I still remember during my teenage days that I love very much all photos I took from my Ricoh 35mm rangefinder camera! The camera takes so beautiful pictures! So glad to know that Ricoh and Pentax, which are both very admirable brands and my most preferred, is now one,

Hopefully, I will get a chance to submit a nice photo in a contest here that will win me my long cherish dream..... a PENTAX DSLR K series camera!!!

Welcome to the forum, fellow barefooter My neighbours call my bare feet my "summer shoes". When there is snow on the ground, I do wear shoes.

Glad to find a fellow barefooter. If yours is summer shoes, mine is in my native language PAA which means feet. Thanks for the quick reply. I wonder if I may post some of my personal barefoot photos here?

Of course you can post pictures here. That's what the forum is for. There is a point and shoot section, and not every section of the forum requires Pentax cameras to be used. If everything is bare you might want to add "not safe for work" notice to the post

Welcome to the forums! There's nothing wrong with using a point & shoot camera - I use my little Canon p&s all the time & have gotten some nice shots with it. If you want to post some photos, just check the rules in the particular thread you want to post to. Some require a Pentax camera, others do not. Looking forward to seeing some of your work

Welcome to the forum, I hope you really enjoy your time here.

Hopefully you will be able to get you hands on a Pentax K DSLR and continue to enjoy your photography using one
