    Hi Earl...just saw your "Alone with the Universe" photo and that it won the best photo of 2014.

    Just wanted to say congratulations and commend you on a beautiful shot.

    Saw your camping out image featured over on DP Review's Best of 2014 earlier today. Great photo and well done getting to the 'Best of"!!

    Hey Earl - how goes it? Busy summer? Another Pentax friend wants to shoot blue hour and longer exposures on Granville street bridge in the next couple of weeks. Did you want to go as well?

    How goes the PF writing, looks good so far.

    Hey you're online! Haven't heard from you, how goes it? How did the crowdsourcing event go? YOu didn't send me an invite lol

    You didn't want to take on the organizer of our meetup?
  5. richardwong
    No problem, I thought of sending a message to Mike is it who is the organizer that he should actually send out an invite so everyone can add it to their calendars to make it easier. The more the merrier

    Minolta lenses huh, you are going down the rabbit hole lol or else you're thinking about Sony DSLR's now too? I like the K3+FA31 deal but I think I've got too many lenses now, lol

    Hey how are you doing Earl? You didn't reply back to the Pentax meetup yet for March1?

    What lenses have you bought recently, your LBA intact I'm kind of intrigued with the k3 and Fa31 deal actually.

    Hi Earl, here's a link to the group I started. I have also been thinking about it for a while and our conversation prompted me to go ahead with it. I would be happy if you wanted to help or offer suggestions.

    Hi Earl, Well, I stand corrected. Looks like the SMC 55/1.8 lenses can be radioactive. I have never heard of one of them yellowing which is usually the case because of the thorium. I also have a 55/1.8 and its glass is still water clear and if it was going to yellow it should have done it by now.

    In any case, like you, I am not worried about it as the readings are so low.

  10. pureluck
    Hi Earl, Dave has made an offer that I have accepted. Once we get the transaction completed, I'll contact you to let you know the deal is done.

    Thanks again for your help.
