    Hi, My name is Donnie. I am from Texas!!!!! WOOOOHOOOO LOL Anyway, I have always likes taking pictures but I never had a good camera. I spent 8 yrs in the navy. My first deployment aboard the USS Constellation, we stopped in Hong Kong and I bought ( at the time ) a brand new Minolta Dynax 404-SI and 2 lenses. I immediatly remembered how much I enjoyed taking pictures. Anyway, I have recently started a photo 1 class at LSC Montgomery College in The Woodlands, TX. My instructior incidently is a member of this site, Valerie. I took 2 photo classes in highschool too. I am a husband and a father of three and I am currently pursuing my associates of arts degree hoping to transfer and recieve my bachelors in History. We shall see!!! I'm loving that GI-BILL and Support our Service Men and Women!!!!!!!! They risk their live so you don't have too.......:D

    Hey Donnie-- Hello from a couple of transplanted TEXANS up here in north central Pa. Good luck on your degree. My wife is attending Penn State, 20 years after graduating high school, so we know your difficulties. If you need help with anything, let us know.
