    Hello from Virginia

    Hello from Virginia
    A short bio:


    Born and raised in western PA. Introduced to photography at an early age (my dad had a studio for several years), and I started doing 120 contact prints around the age of 10. Eventually moved up to Omega enlarger in (much) later years when I put together a darkroom in an old farmhouse I was renting and living in after I got out of the Service and had moved to Virginia. All of that went by the wayside when we moved to a different house and I never had a suitable place after that. Still have the equipment squirreled away in boxes tho’, so who knows?


    Most of the stuff I shoot these days is strictly for fun with digital cameras. Still have a bunch of film cameras I want to start using again, including my trusty Nikkormat. Have a Speed Graphic press camera that I want to bring back to life, so guess that will be my next project. It belonged to my dad and it has been sitting dormant for a very long period of time.


    About to turn an another page in the chronological calendar in a couple of days, so we’re going to try and keep this party going for as long as we can.


    Cameras:
    Early Kodak Brownie Six-20
    Kodak Target Six-20
    Kodak Junior Six-20 Series III
    Kodak Brownie Hawkeye
    Argus C3 35mm Rangefinder (sold)
    Petri 35mm SLR (sold)
    Petri 35mm SLR w/ TTL metering (sold)
    Nikkormat FTN 35mm
    Nikkor 50mm 1.8
    Tamron 28mm 2.8
    Myntar 135mm 2.8
    Quantaray Auto Macro/Zoom 75-205mm 3.5
    Minolta 110 Autopak Pocket (2)
    Pacemaker Speed Graphic
    Several 35mm point and shoot cameras of different makes
    Olympus C2500L DSLR
    Several Canon PowerShot A5XX series Digitals


    Look forward to "meeting" more of you and seeing your "work".

    Guy

    Guy, Welcome to Nikonites! Looking forward to your posts and pictures. Where in western PA do you come from? I was born and raised in Greensburg, but haven't been back since my parents passed away. Still have quite a few relatives living in Westmoreland County. I was in the service as well (Army) from August 1966 to August 1970. Got started in photography while in the service. Thanks for your service, and glad to have you here!

    Thank you. Army Strong, as well ('63-'66)

    We were "neighbors" there for a spell back in the middle ages. I was born/raised in Latrobe, but moved to New Castle when my dad changed jobs when I was about 8. My mom was from Latrobe and used to work at a savings and loan in Greensburg before she got married, rode the trolley back and forth every day. She was good friends with the Schallers that used to have the bakery in town.

    Small world.

    AH,MAN........why did you have to bring up Schaller's? LOL! We used to go past that place every Sunday when they were baking, and it was "drool city"! They made some VERY GOOD products. Thanks for the memories, Guy!
