Greetings fellow Pentaxians

Hi All, I finally joined the forum after lurking for a while. Pentax cameras are something I grew up with and have also come back to recently. To make a long story short, I started out using one of my Dad's SPII cameras in the late 80s and joined the photo club in high school. I stuck with photography for a while through college and into the 90s. After a brief hiatus my interest was revived after going digital in 2003. After almost a decade of digital point & shoots I went back to film in 2012 and started collecting old cameras. For general use I've settled with the Pentax K system with a basic set of primes and zooms for my MZ-5, MX, ME Super and MG. I also have a lovely SP II like the one I started out with and some brilliant Takumars. Its funny how impressions from earlier in life can keep coming back to you.

I'm attaching a few photos I shot in New Mexico this winter with my MX. The film is Ilford FP4+ developed in XTOL.
