Hi !... and glad to have my K30 back

First post in a couple of years of visiting the site, but then I've only just got my K30 back I bought a year or so ago... !!

Bought my Pentax MX in the States in the mid 70's to replace the old Russian Zenith I'd lugged around the world, but once I stopped travelling the old MX was in the case, in the garage, untouched for the last 20+ years...... till my son needed a 'film' camera for use at school.
We dug out the old MX and with just new batteries he was up and running... He turned out some nice B&W shots from the lessons..
Playing with it made me want to start capturing images again and, as there's lots of beach and water around West Oz, a K30 seemed a good choice. However my son was now hooked on photography and I 'lost' the K30 as soon as it turned up..

Still, he now has a case full of Canon gear, a lucrative photo business shooting stills and a LOT of video for bands, skaters and weddings and just about to start a Film/Video/Photography degree course.....amazing what an old MX can do .... and I have my now well-used. 'new' K30 back !!!! .....Photos by the K30 but not by me..
