I live in a small town just off K96 between Hutchinson and Wichita. I've been in Kansas longer than any other place now, just over 30 years. My husband is a native Kansan, and having children and grandchildren here I expect I'll stick around for a while longer. Travis, I wish I'd taken an interest in photography when I was your age.
I don't know anyone personally that shoots large format, but I remember one day seeing someone with a large format camera making a portrait at our local zoo. It was several years ago, long before I knew anything at all about cameras. I was fascinated watching, and now I'm wondering if that was you Don.
