hello from southeast Ohio

I just wanted to introduce myself. I live in a small town in Southeastern Ohio, not much happends here, which can be a good thing, I live a few miles from the original Bob Evans Farm, and about 15 minutes across the river from Pt. Pleasant, where the "Mothman" has been sighted, and movie was produced a few years ago.

I signed up few days ago, just now getting on to explore. I have owned a *istD for about 3 years now, have 18-55 kits lens and Pentax 50-200. I've really enjoyed my pentax, been the odd ball in the crowds with it, but that's ok, I've took several thousands of pics during those years. I especially like anything nature. I have had a few paying jobs- couple of small weddings, school programs, dance recital & a graduation for family, friends, referrals.

I did however order a new K20d body last weekend and can't wait for it to be delivered. I ordered it the last day the $100 rebate was going on.

I'm looking forward talking to everyone, sharing ideas, reviews and such.

Hi Crystal, welcome on these forums! Hope to see some pictures of Southeastern Ohio (probably with not much happening on it?)!

Hi Crystal,

Let me guess, you live in or near Galipolis OH? Had an uncle that lived there (CEO of Holtzer medical whatever and the hospital there). Driven more than one sports car through that area and even took my motorcycle through that area a couple of years ago. Almost as good a riding as we have here in the mountains of NC. I'm originally from NE Ohio so I have a soft spot for that area.

Take care,

So you are close then to Parkersburg, WV? If so, we (wife, mother and sister-in-law) tried our best to find the "Mothman" and the shadow man last year. Good (albeit freezing cold) times.

Welcome, Crystal, from a fellow Ohioan (I live in SW Ohio, close to Cincinnati, when I'm not in Peru). Congratulations on the new camera -- you're going to have a blast, I'm sure!
