Greetings from Western Canada

Hello Pentaxians!
A regular lurker here that is excited to join the community. I've been shooting with Pentax Cameras for many years and find that they suit my shooting style quite well. I'm by no means a professional photographer, but do consider myself an enthusiastic amateur and get much joy from the hobby. As such, I tend to use cameras that are a little long in the tooth and I've never owned a camera or lens that I have bought brand new. Although I enjoy shooting with my Pentax SLR"s, I also get much joy from squeezing nice images from small sensor compact cameras, fixed lens rangefinders, or any camera that has no business producing quality images. I look forward to finally contributing to and conversing with a community that has helped me evolve as a photographer and continues to do so.

Welcome, by your description of your photographic habits, you will fit in just fine. This is a great place to expose your photos (pun intended).

Welcome from Ontario. I've been (with my Pentax ME) to Kamloops many times. Unfortunately not since I went digital.
