Have been lurking for about a month so thought I'd pass along an introduction as it looks like this is a great resource and community. Have resided in New Mexico (Los Alamos to be specific) raising family etc. for about 20 yrs. after growing up (have I grown up yet?) in So. Cal. Besides work and family, I've been a youth soccer coach for ~15 yrs, love to ride my bikes, and generally take advantage of the beauty of NM and the region.
Was taught photography by my step-father when I was ~12, took a couple of classes in college to get past the requirement for art, and have enjoyed it ever sense. Have gotten back into being more "serious" about photo in last 5 yrs or so, even going so far as to have built a small darkroom. I can't say I'm good photographer, but maybe someday.
Like most people these days, we're way too busy for our own good, which means that photography, which I love, is unfortunately a lower priority than I'd like. Alas, how to fix this.....
P.S. Have attached photo taken near Bandilear, my scanning of the photo is poor (done on a cheap printer/copier/scanner/dishwasher) but I hope you enjoy.
