When traveling for work, it can be hard to find time and reasons to step outside the office and explore the new place you are in. Photography gives you that reason and the Pentax ME is the perfect companion when you only have a short time to walk around over lunch or in the evening.
It’s small enough to fit in a large pocket or your bag, built like a small tank and sports a fast 50mm 1.7 lens. The aperture priority makes it easy to concentrate of composition and the enormous viewfinder lets you really watch what’s going on around you – without feeling like you’re missing out by staring through your camera.
On my most recent trip, I spent some very enjoyable lunch breaks and evenings wondering around Kathmandu and Pokhara, talking to people, eating and taking photos. Using a limited supply of film with is just what you need to cut through the hustle and bustle of these cities and gain some unique perspectives.
