Skeleton from the Closet - My K1000

Hi all,

While I'm not exclusively focused on Pentax, I thought some of you may find my blog series, Skeletons from the Closet, interesting this month. In the series, I pull a different old film camera out and use it for a month, reporting on the process and results. In this first month (January), I shot my K1000, which I've had since ~1977. It was a blast shooting it again. This is my first results post, a few more to come:

DMC-365 - Exploring the Interface Between Equipment and Creativity in Photography: Skeletons From The Closet - January Results Post #1 - Pentax K1000

Hope you find it interested

What a wonderful idea for a blog - and for a camera collection. Truly enjoyed the shots and my K135/2.5 is one of my favorite lenses. I'm surprised you think it doesn't get much love on the Forums!

Best, monochrome.

(P.S. - loading up images for the introduction of my tumblr, which is your idea, plus Pentax Mirrorless cameras).

Is the 135 the SMC K or a Takumar Bayonet?
