Introducing myself from France (near Lyon)

my first name is Gilles (male, because i know that it also could be a female first name in some countries), i'm 50 and i live in France close to Lyon. I'm married and i have 3 kids (11, 22, 23). Professionally, i'm senior executive in the automotive industry (not so nice for the time being !).
My main hobbies are music (i used to be semiprofessional musician a couple of years ago), photography (since a few years), ski (i love this) and travelling :
- US 3 times
- Mexico
- lots of EU countries (of course)
- Tunisia, Egypt
- Maldives (wonderful)
I'm a Pentax holder since almost 2 years, and i've just acquired a K7 (by the way, my K20D is probably for sale .. i don't know). I like the Pentax philosophy which is for my understanding better oriented lenses then this crazy camera race which are playing yellow and red fellows.

That's all... i guess !

Hi welcome to the forum,
I hope you will enjoy it!

In case you want to show us your photos from this week or last week (just normal stuff, it doesn't have to be fancy), you are always welcome to contribute to the picture of the week!

Hi Gilles, and Welcome!

Your K-7 should be a great camera especially for skiing

Salut Gilles!

Welcome here !
You will find lots of great people, tons of useful information and thousands of the greatest photos from very dedicated pro's and amateurs (like me).
Can't wait until you show us some pictures from those exotic places in which you have resided.
By the way, being a musician yourself, take a look at this thread here:
