    Hello from Joisey

    Hello everyone,

    Another long-time lurker de-cloaks. I'm Jonathan Stark, from Lumberton, NJ. You've never heard of it, but it's about 15 miles due east of Philadelphia. I'm an IT project manager (job 1), church organist (job 2) and enthusiastic amateur photographer. I shoot mostly 35mm and a little 120, and use old-ish (Pentax Spotmatics), really old (Exaktas, Leica, Rolleiflex) and very old (don't ask) equipment. (I'm a bit of an old camera collector too, but that's a nasty addiction we won't discuss in mixed company!) Currently I shoot mostly nature and landscape on color transparency. The local lab guy's taken to calling me "chrome boy".... you think he'd be more respectful to the people who are keeping him in the film processing business! Long, long ago (1970's) I had a darkroom for B&W printing, which I hope to set back up soon, but I have much to learn about B&W processing and printing. And I must admit there's one digicam in the house, it's my wife's, but I'm safe from temptation to use it 'cause I don't have the patience to cope with its 43 layers of menus!

    Welcome from across the Hudson. Lumbarton's probably too far to photograph from the Upper West Side, but there's another guy who goes by "Jersey Vic" who does live on the river, and we have a bit of a running joke that he's in all my cityscapes.

    Welchrome aboard! (sorry couldn't resist)

    15 miles from Philly ehh? At least you're a heck of a lot closer than I am to one of the best darkroom suppliers in the Garden State, The Darkroom Studios over in Merchantville - great place, AND darkroom rentals to boot!

    Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    Welome from about 1-1/2 hours s.w. of Lumberton in the wetlands of Md.'s Eastern Shore. Speaking of ancient equipment, I bought my DII from a gent in Toms River and a lens from Bob Fowler. Both working great. I hope someone, some day will have the nerve and knowledge to establish a Mid-Atlantic forum group here. Do I hear volunteers?
    I love the smell of fixer in the morning. It smells like...creativity!
    Truly, dr bob.

    Ya know, that concept is sounding better and better.

    The very least we should do is work out a date/time when those of us in the area can have a get together...

    I'm open to suggestions.

    Welcome,

    I know Lumberton. I grew up there. Now I live right next door in Mt. Holly.

    In NJ talk, we're Exit 5 of the NJ Turnpike.

    The cyber world is cool, you can talk to people all around the world, or say hello to someone in the town next to you.

    Welcome Jonathon-there are quite a few musically inclined in the Apug family!

    I haven't had the opportunity to visit your town but I have been close and I wouldn't be surprised if Professor Goldfarb starts a Lumberton view series from the roof of his apartment bldg to compliment his legendary "As from My window I sometimes glance series"
