Greetings from east-central New Mexico--yes, we are part of the good old USA, becoming a state in 1912, the 49th, and until Alaska, the 4th largest in land size. I am a retired educator. Have been interested and active in photography since about 15 years old, and my 2016 age is 73. Also, as my id might indicate, have a couple of antique cars, a '31 Model A Victoria, and a '27 Model T Roadster, both restored to original. I like the outdoors, hunting, camping fishing, etc, when I have time--retirement is just a word indicating a change in attitude and keeping busy. I generally lurk and sometimes respond. I might even post something every now and then.
I have had several Pentax cameras, notably a 35mm Super Program (50mm 1.7) and a K5 (Sigma 28/70mm 3.5-4.5, Promaster 28/105 mm 4.0-5.6) and a Promaster 70-300 4.0-5.6) currently, as well as 500mm mirror. I did have a D10, but someone needed it more than I did, so they took it when I wasn't looking.

Hi 31 Ford Vicky. Welcome to the Pentax forums. As you are retired now, you don't " have " to do anything, but I would like to see some of your photographs after you have settled in. Good to have you on board.

Welcome to the forum, by telling us all about the wonderful machinery you have, you'll need to post images so we can see them.
