Hello from Melbourne

Hi, I have been shooting with Pentax for quite a few years, however over the past 3 or 4 years I have not shot much at all and when I have taken images, they have tended to be pics of the grand-kids using a mobile phone. I have the Pentax K5 11s which I love but have not used very much. Main barriers to my photography have been family commitments with a daughter who has moved back home with two children and now has a third child so the household has been somewhat crazy. Added to this is a job that keeps me well and truly busy.
I am determined to get back into photography (indeed I suspect it is the only thing that will keep me sane) over the next 12 months, starting with a project of taking an image each day for the next two weeks (the time I am on leave for).
I would love to meet up with any other pentax users who reside in Melbourne for an outing.

Welcome aboard, sounds like you just need to get back in the saddle, a image a day is a good place to start and hopefully signing up here should help build your enthusiasm too.

Welcome back I must say take whatever anchors you to your sanity. Photography really is a wonderful escape mechanism. Can't wait to see what you come up with I hope Melbourne is nice to you and gives you some nice opportunities. I think make photography part of your life don't let life get in the way easier said than done at times I know 😜

G'day Siannon glad you could join us.
You will find a lot of Aussie Pentaxians around here, I think there is a Victorian or Melbourne sub-forum you can join.
The K5iis is a great companion for retaining ones sanity.
