Pentax KM

This is my new favourite toy, a Pentax KM. It's a 35mm single-lens reflex camera that my girlfriend bought off eBay as a random gift to me. Considering it is roughly 40 years old (and the seller listed it as being "untested"), I had my doubts about whether this thing would actually work. I put a roll of film in it, took a few snaps of things I came across throughout my day and hoped for the best. To my surprise, it worked an absolute treat and I can now say I have a new hobby! This was my first time shooting with an SLR (and I have very limited experience with photography in general) so I'm still figuring out how it all works, but so far I'm really enjoying it. Although it is somewhat inconvenient and expensive, the look & feel of these photos simply cannot be replicated with a digital camera.

Here are a few of my favourites from the roll...

Ahhh, my little Boz-man. This cat is the most beautiful animal I've ever met. He truly warms my heart.

These are my grandparents. Those who know me will know how much they mean to me, and what a rare snap this is. It's actually my favourite photograph of all time, bar none.

Pictured above is my soulmate (a.k.a Jade). We've been together for over a year now and I find myself falling more in love with her every single day. She is such an angel.
PS: thanks for buying me this camera so I could capture beautiful photos of you.

This is Joshua. Although he is only 7 years old, this young man has more wisdom and strength than most people I know. He is an inspiration to me and I'll always see him as my little brother.

This is "Mr Moon" at Luna Park in St Kilda. I don't have a whole lot to say about the theme park (other than the Scenic Railway is a terrifying death trap), but I like the photos.

More photos from St Kilda...

Trees are my best friends.

I should probably stop frowning... and have a shave.



  1. Trace is a talented band. All their songs are wonderful. They are different form each other. Let me know is fantastic. Thank you for sharing.
