Another camera

Can’t stop long. I have all sort of plates spinning here and I can see one or two of them slowing down and looking very precarious!

I had to share a few of piccies though, as I have just got my first batch of photos back from the lab that I took with my new Pentax K1000. Another new (old) camera that I am in love with!

I love the crisp-yet-soft, muted quality of the images, and the f/1.2
lens means there’s lots of fun to be had with depth of field too.

This one with the milk bottles is my favourite – the softness puts my in mind of a Polaroid – I may have to take some shots of the same thing with both cameras to compare.

This is the beast in question, it even has a lightmeter built in which is a bit of a luxury compared with some of the vintage cameras I’ve been using lately…

    the K1000 is brilliant. it’s the first camera i learned on and very close to my heart! i have two lenses, a 50mm and a 28mm, and they’re both killer. love your shots and i think they milk bottles are my fave, too.

    How did you publish your photos here? Is there some kind of a USB cable for that? Because I just bought a Pentax Asahi K1000 I want to publish my photos too.
