I clicked on the post without looking at who posted. Then the first pic opens up and i think to myself.... "It's Moving Comfort, and he's is gonna floor my ego again... kindly reminding me that the limiting factor of my camera system still is... behind the camera..."

Kind regards and thanks for posting!

Great shots! Oh to be a kid again, when staring at a dead bug could be that engrossing.

Awesome shallow DOF water fountain shot!

Could you send me that lens for a few weeks? I'd like to verify that IQ on my K-5?

Thank you. Seeing the world through a kid's eyes is joyous indeed.

Re the lens on the K-5 - there's a K5-specific thread on pentaxforums, and whenever I see shots from the 35ltd in that thread they usually blow me away - that sensor and this lens were made for each other. (alas, I'm still shooting the K20D.)

Not very active. I will be shooting only when I go on vacations. One coming up soon to Alaska with a stop over in Seattle and surrounding areas. Will definitely be shooting quite a bit and post later....thanks for asking.

Proof that the photographer makes the photos not the equipment. Again. Great shots.

Mine are older now. Makes me miss their little voices.
