    Hello from Tokyo, Japan!

    I've been so fortunate to have spent a lost 3 1/2 years in Tokyo, especially when it comes to photography. As many others have done, I started photography in film/darkrooms. Along came digital and I dumped a bunch of $$$ and time on dig/Photoshop. I have missed the tangibility of film, so I've started my journey back.

    It began when I picked up a Holga 120GN, a number of Polaroids and an Olympus Trip 35 for fun. The stable has increased to a decent Mamiya 645 and, as of yesterday, a very clean and working Mamiya RB67 Pro S with a 127mm lens, 120 back and a stock Mamiya Polaroid Back. I start resealing the RB67 next week.

    The family and I are moving to the Dallas area in June. Hopefully there are a few APUG folks out in that area.

    Thanks all for the welcome!

    We've just got a little time left here and I really want to get a few rolls of 120 (and maybe a few Polaroids) from the RB67 before we go. I want the last photos to be themed and I'm thinking maybe travelling the busy parts of Tokyo, and maybe something out toward Mt. Fuji that is all timed photos showing the movement and life of this area...trains, rivers, traffic, crowds, whatever moves. However, I've read that the RB67 is a little tricky with long exposures. Should make the experiment more fun IMHO.
