    Thanks!

    If you ever make it to the east coast (Delray, Boynton area), let me know. I'll give you a tour of Loxahatchee, Wakodahatchee and/or Green Cay.

    The owls are at Lox.

    SWEET! I’ll be sure to let you know if I’m ever over that way. Owls are pretty much my favorite bird although I’ve not seen many of them in the wild. I find myself getting my “owl fixes” by looking at pictures like yours!

    My first 35mm camera was a Minolta Hi-Matic E. I loved that camera.

    Welcome to Nikonites.
    One thing I LOVED about my Minolta XG-M was the user manual. It wasn't very long, but the directions explained how manual mode worked - how to meter manually as well as the effects of the aperture and shutter speed on its images by adjusting camera settings. It was so concise and simply stated that it wasn't daunting to learn manual at all.

    Dawg, thanks for the welcome! The Grumpy part is like how the biggest guy gets called tiny, and the fat guy gets called slim. It started when one of my co-workers hid my tools and wouldn't give them back. So I finally called my boss at about 2AM to complain. Got my tools back, but one of the guys said “Boy, you sure are a Grumpy bas..rd!” The Grumpy part stuck, and the rest of it went away. Even our 3 grandsons call me Grump or Grumpy. But usually, thank goodness, I’m not!

    I went from an SRT-101 to a Minolta Maxxum 7000, and it was like time traveling into the future. I had a databack on it, and thought I was Hot Stuff. All in all, they were both good cameras, but could not compete with today's stuff. Lot less plastic on them though..........

    I didn't really understand what I was doing. That little camera was an auto rangefinder, and it did a great job exposing images properly. I was thinking it was a manual camera, but looking at it now, I remember it was point and shoot. I thought I was a pro at the time, but it was just a good little camera for a kid. The Hi-Matic E had a hot shoe, but I don't remember if my Dad ever attached an external flash to it. Too many decades have passed for me to remember.
