Hi Dann from another anologous devotee in Australia (I thought Aberdeen was in Scotland...) :rolleyes:
Dinosaurs? They were never extinct. They simply carried on quietly far from the madding crowd.
I'm a great fan of the Pirates of The Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest and Black Pearl. I thought the ship was a tiny model floating around in a fish pond for the movie. Evidently not!
Welcome to the group, Dann.

Dann, actually I haven't been fishing in many years, OK, decades, but as a kid I fly fished, steelheaded, trolled on the Challis River and surrounding rivers and lakes. The clam digging was great as was the Pheasant and Grouse hunting. So if it was under the sand or under the water or in the air I was taught to get it. My step grandfather was Norwegian and was the sportsman of sportsman. I was sent there for long Summers and into the Fall. It was an education that not many get. Before I could go fly fishing I had to cast into an old tire and tie my own flies. Before I could go steelhead fishing I had to go to town and capture my own night crawlers at the edge of the sidewalk and wet grass. I didn't have to load my own shot gun shells but I was expected to be accurate in my aim. I can still remember how my should felt the first time.
I have a Nirvana CD, Kurt Cobain was certainly one of a kind.

Hello and welcome, Dann! The Lady Washington visits our bay occasionally (Humboldt Bay/Eureka)...I took my three boys aboard...nice ship!
Sorry for the digital images below -- images are from 5 years ago (they were 7 years old).

At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.
Welcome aboard....from another Pacific Northwesterner. I'll be passing through your area the 1st full week in April. Starting at Whidbey Island and ferry over to the Olympic range, Neah Bay, rain forest etc, down the coast and cut over to Olympia then back to Arlington. I'll have the 4x5, Hassy (maybe the 6x9 if it's back from CLA in PA) and the digital gear. I try and do this each year in April/May. Last year I took a class in with B Barnbaum the year before I went to Montana...wonderful country we have on the west coast. Enjoy the journey.

Welcome from northern Indiana.
It's good to know that there are now TWO great photographers from Aberdeen. I'm sure that Lee Friedlander has felt pretty lonely all these years having had to bear the distinction alone!
We have Dungeness crabs and oysters up here in Anacortes, too, but you get to eat those yummy razor clams!
