I must introduce myself

Since joining PU group I have had some difficulty in learning to use the features as there appear to be no instructions. Therefore I'm a bit late introducing myself.
I am retired and live in Clevedon, on the North Somerset coast, near Bristol.
I bought my first Pentax SLR, an SP1000, in 1975 for 100, which was big money then, followed by a P30n and MZ-10. When going digital I chose a Panasonic FZ30 bridge before retuning to the Pentax K100D Super that I use now.
My interests have always involved natural history in any form and landscapes, close ups and architecture. My ambitions and expenditure are now modest, I just enjoy taking photographs. I have already benefited greatly in being a PU member and the comments of other members have been a great encouragement to me. I wish I had known about the site before. Thank you all for your generosity, its great to be a member.
Bob.

Welcome Bob, I only joined last month and must say it's a great forum with plenty of advice on hand.
All the best
