    About Me
    I am a retired electronics engineer.

    I started with photography (and Pentax) in 1980, then lapsed for a couple of decades. Good, affordable, DSLRs has reawakened my interest (I bought a K-m in 2009).

    Following the forums (and ebay!), and like any good Pentaxian, I quickly acquired a lot of lenses (and of course LBA - it goes without saying!)
