Introduction

My name is Dan. This past weekend (November 7-11, 2014) I was holidaying in Vancouver. On the top of Grouse Mountain, taking pictures of a couple of bears, a fellow right beside me asked me about my Pentax camera. I was stunned. I rarely is EVER get asked about my camera. Clearly, this guy was a Pentax guy and I couldn't wait to talk to him. He was a Pentax guy and together we had much to share. He then pointed me to the Pentax Forums web site...and this is why I am here! Can't wait to connect with folks who love this equipment. I have been using Pentax since I was 15 (my Spotmatic which I still have). So, 44 years later I am still in love with my Pentax. I have a K-5, thinking of going to the K-3, along with an awesome 18-270 Pentax Lens and a AF-540FGZ flash. I shoot about 18,000 pictures a year (give or take depending on how many trips my wife and I make). I love technology, computers (Apple only!) and of course, learning new stuff. As an Apple Educator, I also love teaching kids how to become awesome photographers, with love for art, creativity and beauty.
