    I don't usually do introductions but ...

    I feel a bit like a man in a boat lost at sea for many years who finally sees the shoreline again. I started the photography bug hard in '96. Been through a lot of phases with a variety of gear and put down the film camera to pursue the digital domain (to which I learned how to print beyond ordinary darkroom basics) and came back to 120 MF as the only real means for getting the best IQ for the $$$. Have no idea why I ever left but it is indeed great to be using film again. I have several cameras including a Fotoman 6x12 with a 58XL which just slices and dices and a high end prepress (Screen Cezanne Elite) scanner which delivers 668mb 16 bit files (6x12 3200ppi) of quality besting most of the $$$$$ MF backs. I am delving into symbolic or conceptual art at this time (thanks to Jerry Uelsmann among the many others) which is where my head has always been. What a path of discovery the life of a photographer.

    Cheers,
    Joe

    Welcome back or to however you prefer to look at.
    Thy heart -- thy heart! -- I wake and sigh,
    And sleep to dream till day
    Of the truth that gold can never buy
    Of the bawbles that it may.

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...
