    New to Denver - if there's any fellow APUGers out here in MH wouldn't mind making some new friends. Shooting w/ Mamiya 7II B & W mostly. Would consider myself a serious amateur. Was a subscriber a few years ago while back in NY and let my subscription lapse. Thought it was time to renew. Find APUG to be a tremendous resource.

    Welcome to Colorado Al! I'm just over the hill about 250 miles away in Grand Junction - a hop, skip and a jump away from you:smile:

    Erik - I have business that takes me to SLC quite often, so from time to time I find myself on I-70 going west. You live in some beautiful country.

    Welcome to the front range Al, and back to apug. I'm just up the road in the the Boulder area. The snow is flying today but I get out pretty often, maybe we can meet some time for a beer and a shoot.

    Hey D - snowing down here too. That sounds fantastic - my exploration to the north hasn't strayed far from I-25 corridor - sad but true. I'll send you a message when things settle down. Would love to make it up to Boulder for some suds. A.

    I am out here in Aurora doing my thing. I was in downtown Denver last Friday shooting with the 8x20 and did not realize at the time that I was including the Federal Reserve building in of my photographs. Was rather surprised to come from under the dark cloth to find two armed guards checking me out. A quick check of the ground glass and a look at my drivers license and all was well. I get out regularly to make photographs and have lived here in the Denver metro area since the early 1980's. Great place to call home.

    PM me if I can be of assistance.
    Cheers!

    Welcome back! I've been to Denver and the area - you've got some great places to shoot out there.

    Al, if you're interested in a mf enlarger I can set you up gratis. I've got an extra that needs to get out of my space. Next time you roll through grand junction stop in and pick it up if you are interested.
    regards
