pentax week, day 1



okay, i have been promising to tell you about this new camera, and here it is! an early, early (one month early!) birthday present from my dad, also known as my photography advisor: the pentax k1000. i've been so excited to play around with this lovely thing, that i haven't even touched my other cameras this past week. sorry cameras. i know so many people out in flickr land who take amazing photos with this pentax, that i just had to see what all the hubbub was about. i can tell you, it is so fun to use. it is easier and less bulky than my yashica, and definitely more predictable than my holga. that being said, i love all my cameras for different reasons. now all my other birthday presents will have something to live up too...



join me this week for pentax week--exploring my new camera.
have a good monday!

  10. This was my first camera, inherited from my dad when I was 14! It's still the camera I use most often, though it's in need of some TLC at the moment as it's got a light leak.

    You can see my Pentax pictures on my blogs and my flickr, if you're interested! Sandra Juto (I'm sure you know who she is but I link to her on my blog) also uses a Pentax - you're in good company! Can't wait to see more of your photos! xxx
