Hello from France

Hello all,
I've been lurking around without introducing myself for way too long, so here goes:
I'm a Norwegian musician living in France, hobby photographer since the tender age of eight.
My first camera was an Agfa Click-III that got me bitten... I started economising and was finally able to by my first SLR at twelve: a glorious, shining Practica MTL 3 with a beautiful Zeiss Tessar 50mm that I still use. After that I took over a couple Spotmatics, then got an OM 1 before the digital age set in and I spent some years in point-and-shoot purgatory. The first DSLR was a Nikon, a D-50 which gave me a lot of pleasure, but when I realised I could use all of my old M42 glass on Pentax DSLR I didn't hesitate long and got myself a brand new K-x. I recently upgraded to K-50, currently trying to cure myself of a serious Lens Aquisition Syndrome... To see some of my photos, here's my Flikr gallery.
Looking forward to exchanges on this great forum.
Greetings from rainy Paris
