I also found this at the thrift store today; I was very lucky. The Pentax K1000 is an iconic camera for people studying photography. I learned how to use an SLR on my dad's K1000. If anything I like using this camera more then my Digital Rebel XL, but the dSLR has more features and film is annoying. I want to get some Kodachrome film for those nice bright colors. Too bad it isn't a Nikon camera.
I really hate the DOF in this picture, but oh well.
