Hello from New Hampshire

Hi all,

I've used the forum as a resource for a number of years and always meant to sign up. I guess today is the day.

My first 35mm was an Argus C3 Rangefinder Camera. My first SLR was the Honeywell Pentax Spotmatic that I scraped to buy in 1968. I've been a die hard Pentax fan ever since. I think I still have every piece of Pentax equipment that I ever purchased. I no longer use the film cameras, but I definitely use all of my lenses. I'm never without a camera (or 3) and often carry all the lenses, as I have favorites for different situations.

I shoot mostly landscape and wildlife, lots of mountains, skiing, kayaking, occasional weddings, and candid shots for families.

I earn my living as a paramedic and ski patroller, but a camera is always within reach.

These are the cameras and lenses:

Honeywell Pentax Spotmatic (retired)
SF1 (2 of these) (retired)

SMC Tak 1:3.5/35
SMC Tak 1:1.4/50
Super-Tak 1:1.8/55
SMC Tak 1:2.8/105
Super-Tak 1:3.5/135
SMC Tak 1:4/200
SMC Tak 1:4.5/85-210
SMC Tak 1:5.6/400
Takumar(Bayonet) 1:2.5/135
Pentax DA 1:3.5-4.5/10-17 Fisheye
Pentax-F 1:3.5-4.5/35-70
Pentax-F 1:1.4/50
Takumar-F 1:4-5.6/70-210
Tamron 1:3.5-6.3/28-300

This is kind of what I shoot:

Welcome to the forum.

You have a lovely range of lenses and between those and the quality of the images you've posted I'm sure you'll find the forums a great place to explore and contribute to.

I look forward to seeing many more images from you too.

Alan, Welcome!
It looks like you have found several interesting things to point your camera at

My Family Tree is rooted in Chester, NH.
I enjoy the vast forests there when I travel back for the Family Reunions.
