    although i am in northern nsw, i would like to join up with the group.
    visit adelaide occasionally
    might be lucky, a visit may coincide with a social event, or a photo outing
    i have been using pentax slr cameras since 1980 (ME), but getting very disenchanted with q1uality of "00" series, continued use of 2nd-rate "made-in-china" components, and recent marketing policy in aust.
    but, i am hanging in there, thanks to my lovely little "retro" Kp
    Sold my 4.5 yr old K-50 "travelling" camera (AA batteries), before it failed. (decided to carry Kp as travelling camera). I bought a K-70 as a backup camera, purchased from B&H, NY, so i could get a 4-year warranty, which has CRK as an 'authorised repairer'

    G'day Tas!

    Hey - nice shots. Looks like a day at the fair!

    You must have had a bit more wind - the shark floated to earth as we arrived, so we missed it. But that sky was so classically blue. Did you see the Japanese battle kites? I got a few of them, but I think the most intense image was the orange fish.

    I really must do some processing. Managed to get a stack of shots, and that o old Tak 80-200 came into its own - just long enough for the job. I scored a bit of dust on the sensor during a lens change though, so there is a bit of work to do first.....

    I need to get my sensor cleaned too! I tried to blow the dust off with a new blower I bought in Sydney (not a rocket blower), only it put about 35 spots of muck on the sensor (and probably everything else). I'll probably get a refund, but the cost of cleaning may be a bit harder ($130!!!).

    BTW, when are you off to the new job? We'll have to catch up before then.

    G'day Chris,

    I finally got sorted with a few pics from the kite festival. The link here is to my Flickr page to have a bit of a gander/giggle etc. Hope things are well with you and your family.

    Hi Chris,

    It is a wonderful piece of art for sure. I've been meaning to track down the CD that the track comes from as it would be good background music to work to.

    Good to hear your lens has arrived, I look forward to seeing what you can do with it. Have fun.

    Might be heading up to Semaphore on the weekend for the kite festival. What about yourself?

    Hi Chris,

    I said on Saturday that I'd send you a link to a Flickr page with a wonderful example of time lapse. The visual and aural elements here really work, so thought I best not forget to share it with you. Hooroo for now.
