The current city of Paphos lies on the Mediterranean coast, about 50 km (30 mi) west of Limassol (the biggest port on the island), which has an A6 highway connection. Paphos International Airport is the country's second-largest airport. The city has a subtropical-Mediterranean climate, with the mildest temperatures on the island.

What's in my camera bag - Pentax MG

There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are.
— Ernst Haas

Here is the newest member of the my 35mm family, a wonderful birthday gift from my cousin Paddy.....the Pentax MG. I love my K1000 it's a tank that produces amazing images so I am very very excited to get a day off and test this beauty out. Yes I have yet to get the MG out for a test run. I am still doing my research on the MG and so far it looks like it will be a great fun camera to snap some images out and about. I will definitely be taking it on my upcoming trips, as long as it works. I will probably run a couple of test rolls before I send it off for cleaning, as I am curious to see what history is on the glass. Like the Pentax K1000 the MG really is a beautiful looking camera!!!!
