    A few months away but time enough to save for the G.A.S.

    The Puget Sound PCS swap meet is on April 13th. Probably worth driving down. $15 early entrance, $5 regular entrance.

    I hope every Vancouver photography enthusiast is ready for Sunday. I can feel the preliminary effects of GAS coming up. I have a few $$ saved for just such an event. See you there. Can recognize me with my Hawaiian shirt & a Canon FILM camera. Need to get rid of some of my Pentax equipment....so I can buy more Canon paraphernalia.

    Well I did quite well. I actually came home with more $ than I took. The only reason being I consignment sold 2 Pentax K 1000's. Purchased an antique camera (or so I though) but the Yashica-Mat that was released the same year as me...

    At the swap meet down here, I didn't buy much at all. Got a lens cap and a 50/1.4 AI Nikkor. Was tempted to grab a 135/3.5 Nikkor-Q, but knew that I could probably get a better deal at Kenmore Camera for one that was cleaner. So, on the way home, I headed to Kenmore and snagged the lens. $20 less than what the guy at the swap meet wanted. Looks almost brand new.
