    Hello all from the land of cheese and bratts lol. I've been involved with photography on and off since I was about 16 so almost 30yrs. I love B/W and sunset/sunrise photo's. I currently have a Canon p/s and a minolta maxxum 5xi. I'm looking at purchasing a Minolta x700 or x570. My 1st camera was a Minolta xg1 great camera for a beginner.

    Anyway I've gotten alot of help from everyone here very good web site. Tnx to everyone. Dan

    Hello from Burlington, Wi. My sister and brother in law use to live in Waupaca. Liked it so much we purchase some camping land in Iola. Those Wolf river trips (I think it was the Wolf) were really great.

    Welcome from a kindred badger! :D I used to be a Wolverine, but decided I just did not pay enough taxes, so here I am, in the heart of Hartland!

    This is a fine place to sit down, kick back, learn & share about film photography!

    (I was kind of excited for a minute when I saw your screen name... be still my heart... ) hahaha!!!

    Badger-land for our non-US friends is the state of Wisconsin! :smile:

    Hi Roteague, Beautiful place you have there. I spent 6 years on Oahu, Schofield barracks to be exact, when I was in the Army. Was there fm 1987-1991 then fm 1992 till 1994. Needless to say I took alot of beach photo's especially of Wiameia bay.

    Welcome from Montreal Canada. If film floats your boat then you've come to the right place.

    Welcome from the other corner of the state (Rice Lake).... My son is a student at UW-Madison so you can guess that we're Badger folks, too!

    Greetings to the original poster from Fond du lac!

    The Badger State is Wisconsin, just to the west of Lake Michigan and north of Chicago.

    Regarding the Bears, we had to give you one glimmer of hope for the season. :wink:
