From the time I was a young child, I recall being in my Dad's darkroom, watching images magically appear on what was once plain white paper. If I looked way, way up, images always seemed to be dancing on clothespegs in the glow of a red lightbulb above the door. I do not recall my Dad ever being without a camera. Over the years Dad has built quite a Collection. Dad gave me my first Camera but a Canon A-1 and a few lenses purchased from Dad, introduced me to better image taking. When I purchased my first computer in 2004, Dad also urged me to buy my first Digital Camera. (Suddenly things were much easier!!) I joined PN in August of 2008. Here, I have met many encouraging people & forged wonderful friendships. Not only is PN a very affordable and excellent Forum to share your Images, a 'wealth of information' can be found on this site. And if along the way, a friend or two is made, what more could one ask for? My Dad remains a great influence and help with my Photography. While still a 'Newbie', I know I am part of a very large and talented 'family'.
