    Welcome to the site Frank. It's good to make your acquaintance.
    With all your experience and the joy you still approach photography, I appear to have many years left of this activity. Man, I gotta stop complaining about being an ol' fart! :wink:

    Frank,
    I don't seem to be much of a greeter to new members but for someone older than I am, I heartily welcome you. There are a lot whippersnappers here but they mean good.
    Just be careful of those who want to talk about 'digigizmos'. They're some kind of computer and camera that will drive us all to drink.

    Congratulations, Frank, on survival. You've got me beat by 10. Hope I can still do it too when I get there. I started when I was 14 using an old enlarger provided by a friend of my dad. I was set up under the basement stairs right beside the coal bin and I don't know if the dust or the spiders were worse. But it's been over 50 years for me and the excitement of that print staring back through the soup has never waned.
