Kia Ora from Aoetaroa (NZ)

Hey guys, I'm 16 from NZ, nice to be here in the forums, I have a Pentax Spotmatic and am thinking of adding the Takumar 35mm 3.5 and the Takumar 50mm 1.4 to my collection :-)

Is that Aoetaroa as in the '6 months in a leaky boat' song?

Welcome from another country that has two official languages.

Great to hear that you're using a Spotmatic. Hope to see some of your pictures.

Thank you for the kind greetings guys :-)
@Calsan Yeah! It's mentioned in "Six Months In A Leaky Boat" a song by the homegrown kiwi band Split Enz. Aoetaroa is the Maori name for New Zealand, with its common translation being "The land of the long white cloud"
