    Hello everyone,
    I'm new here.
    I'm rather glad I found a place just for film, I'm tired of people talking about D@#*!* (sorry can't say the word) all the time.
    Looking forward to talking with many of you. :smile:

    Welcome Rich. Some other things you can't say are (Simmons, Smith, Wisner) or at least nothing nice. Come to think of it D@#*!* is not such a bad word.

    My camera's are:
    120's: Pentax 645, Yashica-Mat LM (circa '58)
    35's: Canon Elan 7ne, Canon G-2, Canon K-2, GAF (Konica-circa '72), Kodak Retina (circa '51)
    Pinhole: Holga, Homemade
    I use all my old camera's on a regular bases and I keep them in perfect condition, they still take wonderful photographs.
    Though I do get looks when I bring the Kodak or the Yashica out.

    Hi Rich - welcome. My guess is that it would be very difficult not to be into photography living where you do!

    You'll have fun here.
