    Greeting from the Wilderness of Alaska

    As a means of introduction, I am Harold Wingo and I live in a designated wilderness area of Alaska (which officially means we are far more remote than living in the bush). I live on an Island in the Pacific Ocean, 120 miles from the main land. The name of our Island is Prince of Wales. We get mail by a tiny float plane (weather permiting) and the tiny planes are our only fast means of transportation to and from the Island. For the last year my phoptographic interests have been focused on Large Format though I have previous experience with MF and 35mm.

    Hi Harold,

    Your introduction title sure caught my eye. I've never been to Southeast (that's southeast AK for the rest of you), but it seems like a wonderful area and I hope you are exercising your camera.

    Good Morning, Harold,

    I've been wondering if we'd see you here sometime. I've enjoyed your photos and postings on the f32 site. My sympathy for the problems on your recent trip.

    Oh, yes--welcome from southern Illinois!

    Welcome from an island in the Chesapeake Bay! I worked in Alaska in college - I love it. Can't get the Mate interested in moving though.
    I love the smell of fixer in the morning. It smells like...creativity!
    Truly, dr bob.

    Hi Harold! Good to see you over in these parts.

    I also live on a small island, but it's not so far to the mainland.
