Hello from the frozen tundra of Cheeseheadland...

Now that I'm retired (when did I get old enough to retire?) I've decided to dust off my collection of 35mm Pentax's and start shooting film again...especially b&w. I bought my 1st Spotmatic in 1968, during my 1st tour in Vietnam...other than a few scratches and dings, it is still in great shape. Over the years, I acquired several more along with a variety of lenses. While digital has been convenient, I miss working the magic of the darkroom.Though the vast majority that post here are DSLR, I'm sure there are a few "old school" too.

Welcome here, and look forward to seeing the icy scenery where you are through your lenses.
Enjoy your mix of digital and film work, and have a look at the forum's dedicated film forum for some nostalgia for you.
