It's been a long time since I've been here. i finished my first year on August 12, 2012 and then posted sporadically the second year. I retired last July and am looking forward to spending more time with my camera. I shoot primarily with a Canon Mark III. I'm self taught but am currently taking some photography classes to fill in the many gaps. I look forward to reconnecting with old friends and meeting new ones. And of course learning much from doing and from all of the talented folks on this site.
