Greetings from North of 60!

Hi everyone! I'm new here.

I live in Whitehorse, Yukon (that's in northern Canada). My camera is a Panasonic GF2 micro four thirds, but I shoot 99% of the time with Super Takumar lenses, specifically the 50mm 1.4 and the 28mm 3.5.

I've been doing a ton of lurking because I'm looking to get into film and have been researching all the different options. I've narrowed it down and hoping to get my hands on a 645N.

You can see some of my photos on my tumblr and flickr sites.

Best Regards,
Anthony

Welcome to the forums! I won't complain about WH drivers because the guy that ran into me there was from BC, but I heard more than a few folks boasting of their many wrecks. I blame insurance. Most drivers in Mexico are uninsured and drive pretty carefully; everyone involved in a minor traffic mishap is likely to go to jail for a few months whilst things are sorted out. Ah, but up north, where all are insured -- drivers get careless, complacent. Whack.

Other than that, I rather like WH. Comfortable city, beautiful country, great splendor. Of course, I haven't been there in winter. That's the time to head for Mexico, with more careful drivers and cheaper cops.

PS: Nice shots on your sites!

Thanks!

Hah, you might be on to something there. Car insurance is peanuts up here, maybe people don't sweat the accidents. I do a lot of cycling so I have my own thoughts on Whitehorse drivers.

Thanks Arn! I travel along the Yukon river every day so it ends up in a lot of my photos.
