    Kansas APUG Members

    The thread about Southwest Kansas sparked quite a few replies fellow Kansans, more than I thought there would be. So, if you are in Kansas, or a Kansas expatriate (meaning you spent a good part of your life here), let's here from you and see how many of us there are.

    For the past 16 years, I've lived in the Burlington-New Strawn metro area, about 60 miles south of Topeka. Grew up along Highway 50 between Hutchinson and Dodge City. I was away for 10 years but never could see the sky and a clear horizon living on the East Coast. Way too many trees.

    Yes, I'm not originally from Kansas, but live here outside of Topeka. I was really surprised to see in your gallery images of that Wabunsee County fort. I've shot there before, its very interesting. Also I've been on Deep Creek road searching for places to shoot.... ever see the camels?

    Yep, I'm also an devout JandC customer too! I remember when John came out to meet me for an Ebay sale of Efke 50 in 35mm in Olathe once... Now thats service! Thanks John for all you do.

    One thing that surprises me with your images in Wabunsee county is that we never ran into each other! If I'd seen somebody with a view camera around here I'd think I was halucinating. I enjoy seeing your work.

    It would be nice to see more Kansas APUG members.

    John, glad you jumped in here and doubly glad you are doing such a fine job of keeping everyone supplied with the great materials you sell. J&C film is the only brand I've ever shot in 8x10.

    Thanks for the nice compliment Joe. Maybe we need to organize a shoot in the area some weekend. There's several places between Topeka and Manhattan on my short list. Some in Topeka too.

    Another Kansan!

    I've lived in Kansas nearly all my life, but that isn't a major accomplishment since I'm just a college student. I grew up in Coffeyville in the southeast part of Kansas, and now I'm currently attending McPherson College in McPherson. I've only recently taken up photography as a hobby this last school year, with my primary interest in black and white photography. I have a Pentax K1000 that I purchased on e-bay that's what I use for my art photography. It's a neat little camera and I enjoy working with it.

    I often get the feeling that I'm one of the few young Kansans really proud of the state. I run into people at school (often out-of-staters) who don't appreciate the scenery and "ruralness" of my home state. However, the subtle beauty of the prairie and plains can be shown with well-done photography, as I've seen from many talented photographers. It just takes time to recognize how pretty Kansas can be. =)

    Yes Alex, organizing a shoot would be great. I could really use some lessons on shooting with large format. I have a 4x5, but never use it like I ought to.

    I spent a few days in Lawrence once. Does that count, Alex?

    I suppose it should Ralph. I knew there was something about you that I liked.
