Hello, my name is Graeme and I have been browsing these forums for a while and thought I should say hi. I live in the NW of England, almost on the border between Cheshire and Derbyshire, so plenty of countryside nearby to get out and photograph.
I've had a trusty Pentax Kr for a good few years now, bought on a whim as an ex demo model. Perfect condition and for a great price. After a while with the kit lens I ventured in to the world of manual prime lenses with an old Helios 44m I found in my Dads old camera kit and was hooked! Since then I have acquired a Takumar 135 f3.5, a Vivitar close focus 28mm f2.8 and a m42 Mirage 200mm f3.5 (another find in my dads kit).
More recently I treated myself to a Sigma 17-50mm 2.8 when it had 50 cashback, which I have found to be a very nice lens, if a little on the heavy side.

I Have been tempted to enter project 52 a few times but never managed to get a good picture in time, but will hopefully be posting some pictures to the forums soon.
