Greetings from Shaffer's Valley, Landisburg, PA

Starting over....Vietnam ERA USAF vet, photojournalism major in college (way back when), life got in the way of photography for a while, back working with film for the first time in 30 years. Setting up a home darkroom right now, still need to run the water lines, but it's at least usable at this time. Picked up a ton of darkroom equipment via Craigslist for cheap! Shooting 35mm with Pentax ME Super bodies (main body just CLA'd by Eric) and SMC lenses, MF camera is an old Agfa Isolette II, Solinar F3.5 75mm lens, Prontor-S shutter, just CLA'd. Hoping to get the magic back, and maybe sell a few prints in 2013! I have a Nikon Coolpix 5700 to handle my digital needs. My hobbies, other than photography, are Harleys, leather work, hunting, shooting, bass guitars, and sprint cars.
