About me:

took up photography after seeing a "misty water" shot and wanted to know how it was done. have had dslr for about 5 yrs now. i use a Pentax as it was a name that to me has been there since i can remember, i now have a K5 and am a long way from reaching the limits of what that can do. i do not shoot any thing in particular but i do not do people, as in portraits, do not do sports or birds.getting to quite like wide angle and macro/close up subjects

    an old steam driven crane which must have been horrendous to work in with the boiler inside the metal body plus the noise when it was lifting.
