Greetings fellow Pentaxians,
It has been awhile since I have posted here, though I have lurked from time to time and followed the K7 reports with interest. Job and life (two separate concepts IMO) have been consuming my available free time of late. I have seen a lot of new avatars in the forums but the same friendly welcoming atmosphere that caused me to choose a Pentax in the first place remains.

My personal bit of news is I had two shots chosen for the Entomology Society of America's annual calendar. Apparently they had over 250 submissions (only 20 or so were mine) so I was pretty psyched to have two images chosen. Not that it pays cash but it was another step towards doing something meaningful with my Pentax. I also managed to pick up another Kiron 105mm macro, this one a Vivitar Series 1 to add to my Lester A Dine and I had a Pentax AF160 ring flash delivered this evening.

Roy contacted me recently and reminded me I had not been on the forum for awhile. I apologize and I will try to do better. This forum was one of the major factors in my adopting photography (and macro in particular) as a hobby and there are days at work when only the thought of a weekend of picture taking gets me through. Even if I am not on as often as I once was, I will endeavor to report in more frequently in the future!


One of the two shots for the calendar is below:

I can see why that one was selected - rather amazing. Can we see the other one?

Welcome back - you have been missed.

Wow! What a great shot - no wonder they chose it. I'd been thinking of you not all that long ago, wondering if you were still around. Glad to hear that it's just job and life getting in the way - how well I know that situation.

Post more!
