    New to the board....

    Hello everyone!

    New to the board, obviously.....

    I just recently purchased a 35MM Minolta X7A from E-bay which will be arriving soon. I have been using my fathers Pentax ME Super which he has reclaimed for his own use....

    I've been an amateur photographer for a number of years since high school and try to capture a variety of subjects. One of will will be my beautiful gal!

    Thank you. I have a couple Digi-cams too, but I grew up (literally) with dad's Pentax. Paper media is still my preferred photograph medium.

    Welcome aboard and to the addiction. That 50mm is one of my favorites....if it's a 1.7. I still use it regularly. Have fun!

    I'm gonna have to relearn all the fine details, but I'll pick it up quick. I haven't used dad's Pentax since I moved to the Pacific Northwest Coast a few years ago. Just put it away and got busy elsewhere. Now that I'm free of the abusive ex-wife, I'm gonna start again with my hobby.

    Yes there is. I'm in Vancouver taking a mini-vaca before i move in with my Girlfriend next week. I'm having it delivered here in Vancouver so I can get some shots of my old fishing ground and some friends that live here.....


    Feels good having a camera back in my hands.

    Welcome, from a very near neighbour!
