    Hello, Cooki here. I've been shooting for about 35 years now, mostly 35mm some 120 of late. I work in on of Western Canadas better ( we think ) camera shops, Don's Photo.
    I spent a number of years as a portrait photographer, now I mostly shoot music events and interesting scenics by the river.

    Hi Cooki. Warm welcome from Thunder Bay too. That is about as warm as I can manage with the wind chill at -50C. Even my dog won't stay out for more than 5 minutes. I lived in Winnipeg for a while, love the city. That wind at Portage and Main when the temp is -40C gives a whole new definition to the term "cold". Was it Randy Bachman who sang "Portage and Main 50 below"?

    Lots of experience on this site.

    Welcome to APUG, Cooki.

    No camera shops in the little town of Rio Rancho where I live, but we do have a river (the Rio Grande). :wink:

    Welcome from Ferndale. We don't have much of anything here -- but our slogan is Fashionable Ferndale*.



    *for years that was a self deprecating joke. Sadly, it is slowly becoming true which means I'm soon to be gentrified.

    Welcome from Delta (near Vancouver) British Columbia, Canada.

    I've actually bought something from Don's Photo (via eBay I think?)

    Welcome from Montreal! My girlfriend is from your town, and I've been there last summer with her--I put some of these pics in my gallery.
