Hello from Germany


I'm a long time Pentax user, who started in 1985 with an SuperA, which was bought from the first (real) money I ever earned in my life .
I just could afford a 50mm/1:1.7 lens, but this was my companion over six years.
Photographing all around in Europe, five month in Scotland, six month in Himalaya it still works perfectly well - made over 20000 pictures mostly made in B/W (Ilford PanF to XP2).
Some were processed in my darkroom to photos in 30x40 up to 1.20m x 80cm .
My first DSLR was the K10D and over several years it was followed by a K20D, a K5, a K5iis and now I own a K1.
I also shoot in analog whith a Rolleiflex 2.8F from 1968, some Voiglšnder Bessa (ranging in age from 1925 to 1965), Braun Paxette (1962) and Polaroid (1976-1980) unsing ADOX CMS20 films.

I'm living near Munich (Freising) and work as development Engineer in Munich at BMW. I travel a lot, due to the job and I alwaya have a camera with me.

Greetings from Germany
