    Hello everyone…I have been lurking around here for a few months and have found it to be a source of great information and inspiring photos. I have learned a lot already while in the shadows! Thank you.:2thumbs:

    After 30yrs in SoCal, a couple of years ago my wife and I returned to my old stomping grounds here in Michigan.

    Except for some point and shoots and a brief fling with a RX100, I have been away from photography for many years. I guess long ‘photo hikes’ (or forced marches as my wife called them) with a large backpack filled with a RZ67, F3, film backs, meter, filters etc and carrying around a tripod that was waaay too heavy was fun for awhile, but quickly lost its luster, hence the appeal of the EM5 and Micro four thirds.

    Anyway I’m slowly getting back, lots to learn and re-learn. However, I am comforted by knowing that, ‘the journey of 1,000 miles begins with a single step’…or one photo!

    Welcome Gary! I'm a fellow Michigander living in Lansing since 1980. (Detroit suburbs before that.) I came from Pentax two years ago and absolutely love my E-M5 ... and my E-PM2. :smile:

    Welcome aboard, Gary!

    The :43: gear makes a huge difference when tramping around Greenfield Village ("The Henry Ford"; yech - lousy choice in name changes!) or the Detroit or Battle Creek zoos.

    Post some pics!
