Hello from Clearwater, FL

Hi everyone,

I have to admit, I've been lurking on this site for a few months now, just reading posts and learning a lot. I bought a K10D, grip and other stuff about a year ago, and have been enjoying it very much (about 4500 clicks so far).

My previous hobby was astronomy. I'm still interested in it, but decided that since I didn't get to do that as often as I liked, I would get more involved in photography. I love wildlife photography, airshows, and some racing photography as well.

Since I have been interested in Pentax forums, I have gotten addicted to the older manual focus lenses. I now have 8 and counting!

I look forward to joining in on the conversations, and I may post a few of my photos as well.

I live in Williston, FL--about 2.5 hours or so north of you in the Gainesvlle/Ocala area.

I tried the manual lenses and they just didn't quite work for me, but there are plenty of manual lens afficianados around here--just check out the lens forum and you'll find plenty of good examples of what the manual lenses can do.

Thanks for the welcome Heather,

I've been following these manual lens threats pretty closely. Some very inspiring shots on there.
