    Hi APUG! I'm Kevin Twyford and I live in wild, wonderful, West Virginia! I'm a relative newbie to photography. I currently shot with a Mamiya RB67 pro-s and just acquired a Voigtlander Bessa II folder (much fun!!). Thanks for being there everybody, and I look forward to being part of the community.

    Welcome from northern Indiana. I've wanted a Bessa II for a long time. Does yours have the Skopar or the Heliar?

    Hey, Charles. Mine has the skopar lens. I'm still trying to get used to focusing with the viewfinder! Really cool little camera, though (well, compared to the rb67)!!

    Welcome from Akron, OH, often called the capital of W VA. Love your state. I spent a year in my youth as the Remington Arms rep traveling, selling and shooting all over the state. Now as you can see I shoot a different gun in the mountains; Cass, Dolly Sods.

    Tell us about the great places you have found. W. Va. is a beautiful place and state of mind.

    Thanks for the welcoming words, everyone! For those interested, I am in Jefferson County, in the Eastern Panhandle. I've only been here a few years, and haven't gotten into the interior of the state much (I know, i'm missing out). I've done most of my shooting around northern Virginia and central PA. I plan to spend some time next summer in Shenandoah NP and (hopefully) in the Smokies, too!

    Charles Town? Harpers Ferry? Lots of good photography in that neck of the woods.
