I would just like to say a big thank you for the warm welcome back from those members that have viewed my recent still life ' It's Been a Long Time'. I have rediscovered the delights of the wonderful original K5 together with the 50mm A 1.7. I was wondering if anyone can identify the larger of the two skulls - I found it in a pile of earth behind our stable. I hope to feature it in future works, it really has very nice quality about it !

Welcome back Gary, it seems like no time at all since you last frequented these parts! Time goes faster as we get older

Thanks David, my last pics were uploaded Nov. 2013- but I was on here earlier this year begging for a K5 - eventually got one in first class condition from aybee ( Thanks again Alan !)

Yes, most welcome. Your style has been missed.

Best regards

I've just clicked on your Flickr link - I wish I hadn't, the images are superb, I feel so inadequate and envious!!
Lots of gear - but not a lot of idea!

I knew you'd be back Gary and a warm welcome. I for one cannot wait to see your work again.

We've missed your mastery of the still-life, Gary. There's a huge hole in the forum when you're absent.
Best wishes,
