Old dog new tricks

I come from a long line of shutterbugs and in younger days worked in the darkroom of a local newspaper. Operated a stat and offset camera and even drew occassional stringer photog assignments. That was then.

Over the years I gave away much of my camera equipment but held onto both of my K-1000's. Great cameras, had them since they were new, but the time has come to make the transition.
So my wife bought me a K20D body for Christmas and now that of my old K-mount lenses have made the shift to digital I reckon this old dog needs to learn some new tricks.

But you can call me Barry

Welcome to the party!

You will find digital strange at first like the comment from the old Judy Garland movie " I don't think we are in Kansas anymore..." but it will become second nature again quickly and comfortable like the K1000. Enjoy!
