Salutations from New York

Hi. I've been lurking for the last month or so. I finally got around to joining today. I selected pentaxforums because this place seems more constructive than some of the other choices.

When I was a teenager (25 years ago, ouch) I had some 35mm film experience, then several digital point and shoots over the years. For the last 3 years or so I haven't taken any photos. In early December I decided to dive back into the hobby.

Now I have my first DSLR, a KR with the 2 kit lenses. I plan to concentrate on wildlife, macro, and low-light street scenes.

Welcome to the forum and I guess welcome back to photography.

I wish it was only 25 years ago for me.

The Townhouse closed several years ago. I think the property was purchased by Lowe's to open a hardware store but that deal's been delayed by zoning laws and recession.

Wow. I grew up in Canarsie, and when the parents had the Bar Mizvah at the Huntington Townhouse, you knew they spent a fortune.

I'm 53, so you can do the math.

Wait--I keep forgetting I turned 54 last month.

Fancy shmancy!

All my parents could afford for my Bar Mitzvah was Leonard's in Great Neck.
