yet another random introduction

yeah! i made it to pentaxforums in one piece!

hi my name is christie, i live in melbourne. i'm really bad at introductions.

got my first slr at the tender age of 14. best present i ever got from my dad. a pentax ME super, he gave me his lenses too. a 28mm, 50mm, 20-210mm (tamron), a 2x converter and a 500mm tele-reflector lens. all of these are long gone. the camera to my brother (in exchange for a guitar), the lenses to ebay, to fungus, to fate....

for the last 13 years i have been shooting periodically on and off, and since the better half decided to dabble in digital, it stirred me to pick up my camera again.

after several hundred dollars worth of film processing and printing at vanbar's, i decided $400 to my partner in order for him to "upgrade" to a *istD, enabling me to have my first digital slr wasn't such a bad idea. (this was his old *istDS. which i have been reluctant to part with ever since.)

wondering if this sounds familiar to anyone?

anyway, i might not look like i'm posting much at any given time, but rest assured i'm being told about all the important stuff.

i look forward to sharing all of your knowledge and images

i've put a couple of photos up in the gallery that i took this last weekend on a trip to my dads. despite the slowness of manual focus by far and away my favourite, and most used lens at the moment is the A 35-105mm f3.5.
