Hi everyone,

have been lurking for about a week so thought I'd register. It's nice to see other Pentax users - you could swear sometimes that only Cannon and Nikon make cameras anymore!
I'm based in Cardiff right now, but hpefully moving back to Swansea in July, my main interest is landscapes and abstract images. (I have no website so you'll have to believe me!).
I've been using a Pentax K100D for a couple of years now, money restraints (I foolishly decided to go back to university) meant I haven't added anything to this but if/when I start earning again in september I hope to splash out. I am hoping to eventually try my hand at medium format photography, when I can make a suitable time and money investment into learning this area.

Which reminds me...best get back to the revision

Hello Nick:

Guess I need to look up Swansea in an Atlas....

Here's to you successfully finishing your post secondary education, lots of stress but ultimately that sense of accomplishment is usually worth it.
