    Greetings All,
    First let me thank all those who make this forum possible and the forum for allowing me to join. My name is Robert Watling. I'm an amateur photographer living in Akron, Ohio. I shoot 35mm black and white using Pentax Kmount cameras and some Russian rangefinders, notably a Zorki 6. I look forward to hearing from you all. If there are any members in the Northeast Ohio area who might want to get together for a shooting expedition, I'm willing. Thanks.

    Robert

    Greetings from eastern Canada.

    Hey Robert,
    Pentax K-mount and Zorki 6 eh? A man after my own heart.I use them both extensively.
    You will be introduced to the greatest bunch of shooters anywhere. I have learned more through APUG since becoming a member/subscriber than in all my years of reading and attending photography courses.

    Glad to Meet You,
    Mike

    Thanks

    Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. Actually, Bath, OH is nearly adjacent to Akron so maybe we can hook up. I was out today shooting pumpkins and clouds with an orange filter. Wonder how the orange pumpkins will come out? Also just had to get some shots of my grandson. Thanks again for welcoming me to your group.

    Robert.

    Welcome Robert! (or are you a "Bob" like me?)

    Either there is another "Laz" or someone is more geographically challenged then I thought! :smile:
    .....wait did they move Ohio closer to NY? Nobody tells me anything!
