Salutations from San Diego

Greetings and Salutations All,

It's about time I introduce myself, I have been lurking here since about the last part of '07 when I bought my K10d. (for my cousin's wedding) Since then I have gleaned a great deal of useful information from this site. A necessity since (photographically speaking) I'm new to this digital stuff. I got into photography pretty heavily back in junior high school (oh so long ago) and for my 16th birthday my dad bought me my first SLR, a brand new Spotmatic-F. Since High school however photography became more of just a hobby and eventually I lost what little equipment I had including that beloved Spotmatic-F. In the past decade I tried to get back into taking pictures so I bought a n**** n70 but for some reason it just didn't feel the same and I lost interest again. But when my cousin announced her wedding (and after recovering from angioplasty) I decided to give it another go. I pickup up the K10D and it just felt right!! I really love this camera but there's a bit of a learning curve for this digital stuff. I still like film. Black and white specifically. In fact I seem to be obsessed! So obsessed that I sought after a replacement for that beloved Spot-F and as many Takumars as I can afford.
So to conclude this rather lengthy introduction I thought i would include a couple of my latest endeavors in photography:
Tri-x film developed in hc110 dilution E (that part worked pretty well)
scanned with a POS CanoScan FS2710 (about 10 years old and a royal pain)

this one is ilford pan-f+ in hc110 dilution H

Christopher A. Kirk (hence the handle "cak")
