    Hi all,

    I've been visiting the site for 18 months or so, finally getting around to registering.

    I'm a former photojournalist and picture editor of 25 years, and now a photo educator in southeastern Ohio. I also do quite a lot of freelance work.

    I shoot with just about everything... from large-format black and white, medium format TLRs, film rangefinders, Nikon dSLRs, and now to m4/3.

    I've really been impressed with the quality that comes out of these small and light cameras.

    I currently have a Panasonic G3, Oly EP-2, EPL-1, with a variety of glass.

    Good to be here!

    Hi Larry, and welcome to the forum. Being from SE OH you might know where Caldwell is (even if it hadn't been in the news last year). I did a bit of my growing up there while my Dad officiated at the EUB church there. I've been away from there a long time, but not all that far away (we are in MD now).

    Hi Tom, yes I know Caldwell, about 50 miles east of me. I sometimes stop there to gas up the motorcycle. I was out riding in MD, VA and WV over the weekend, beautiful country.

    Thanks for the welcome.

    Welcome Larry! Spent a little time growing up in Kettering / Centerville. Mom's in Columbus so OH is still in my blood!

    Cheers! :th_salute:
