    Hello from Southern New Jersey

    Hello all,
    Name is Scott, new member from New Jersey right across the Delaware river from Philadelphia. I'm 44, married with one boy, aged 13. Been interested in photography since high school when a relative gave me his complete darkroom setup. Messed around with black and white taking pictures with a Pentax K-1000. Joined the Air Force and while in there took a course with the New York Institute of Photography. After the Air Force I got a job as a freelance photojournalist doing mostly high school sports and occasional public interest stories.
    Got out of the business and hobby for quite a while until now. Getting my feet wet now with medium format. I have a Bronica SQ-Ai system and a old Yashica 124-G TLR. Don't have room yet for a darkroom but I'll soon be moving and it won't be long then.
    Looking forward to being a part of this forum and APUG! Would love to hear from other enthusiasts from the phila, South new jersey area!

    Welcome Scott from the other side of the country, Hawaii. Don't worry there are several people here from your area of the country.

    If Brad won't chime in, I certainly will....

    By all means, get thyself to Merchantville! Brad has a great setup over there!

    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.

    Welcome!

    Scott,

    I now live in Massachusetts but basically grew up in Pennsauken. (Finally
    left there to go to college about...um...38 years ago. Geez, saying 38 there actually physically hurt....:-(...)

    APUG is a good community. Have already met a few APUGers here in the North East, and they were very interesting people....

    Beside large format I shoot an old Pentax 6x7 (ever see a small dog jump when that shutter goes off?) and did a lot of 6x9 with a roll film adaptor on a 4x5.....

    Good light to you....

    Cheers, Bill

    Scott,

    Hello from Lumberton (next to Mount Holly). Probably pretty close to you, as I can be in Philly 1/2 hour after I leave the house..
