Salutations from Dixie

Hey folks,
Alan here. Just joined the forum. Started shooting 35mm back in 1982 for my high school year book with mom's OM-10. The next Christmas they bought me an ME SUPER Kit. Shot it so much that I striped the winding lever out! Went digital with a Lumix superzoom but have tired of the thousands of files and very few prints. Just bought me another ME SUPER and Winder II as well as a 645 with 55, 75, and 200mm lenses. I enjoyed shooting film so much more. Yes, I know, more expensive, less convenient, etc.
I love the internet and the information it brings to me but I am OLD SCHOOL. The challenge was for me was and is to get the shot right when the shutter opened and shut. I enjoyed sending the film off and the anticipation of opening the envelope to see how things turned out. . Look forward to doing some landscape photos and some big negative portraits of my beautiful daughters. Therapy of sorts after nearly dying after getting ran over on my motorcycle.

Welcome to the Forums. A lot of us are proud to be "old school" here. And it sounds you enjoy the wilder side like many of us as well. Enjoy your therapy.
