    Hi all! I never introduced myself before posting here on the forums, as i was just too excited to find a :43: forum!

    I would like to start out saying that this is a great bunch of fellows and ladies here and i like i can find truthful comments and critique here. thanks!

    My name is Brian Y. and i live in the wonderful state of WV. I am 26 and have been working with Acura And Honda for the past 7 years. I currently work with Acura in Virgina as a Master Acura Technican and Master ASE Technician.

    As you can tell i greatly enjoy taking pictures. I fell out of photography some years ago as i got bored the the Olympus e500 i had, and truthfully, was tired of taking it places with me. Something got into me where i really wanted to get back into it again as an enthusiast and to possibly do some side-work for some extra income. So after much research i decided to go full in and invest in the :43: system, and i dont think ill ever look back!

    As years go by, i get more tired or working on cars and turning wrenches, Dont get me wrong, i love cars, actually its a love hate. Cars were my obsession, then my career, it kind of ruined it as a hobby. So now i seek photography as my new obsession and hobby as i purely enjoy it everytime i take the OMD out. :thumbup: One day i hope to quit the automotive industry and become a full time photographer, but in the near future, a part time gig will suffice just fine. :2thumbs:

    I also have started my own website / blog to review products and more importantly as an online portfolio of my work, and i hope one day, it will be as big as some other blogs around the interwebz. :2thumbs: You can find the links in my signature, and if you have time, please drop by, its not much yet as i dont have a whole lot of time to update it.

    cheers!

    Hi Brian,

    Welcome to the forum!

    Former wrench here, too. Hobby turned into profession - then that quickly paled. Much more fun as a hobby :biggrin:. I left automotive mechanics to go into I.T. a quarter century ago and never looked back. Computers do not drip icy salt water in your face while you're working on them, and you don't need a hoist.

    I do a bit of modifying of my own autos these days, but repairs I turn over to my local automotive shop. Mounting a winch or rear bumper on a Jeep can be fun, changing brake disks or changing the oil is just a pain in the backside.
    :biggrin:

    Glad you took a moment to say 'hello'.

    Regards,

    Jim
