I really thought that I responded before-must have been a different thread!


I work in lower Manhattan (NYC), live on Long Island, have been trying my hand at image making for the past 55 years (I started when I was 12), have used a Leica M cameras and lenses for over twenty years, and although I once thought of photography as a profession I've been a consultant in Educational Research & Evaluation for thirty-six years. I'm a real amateur photographer (mostly travel and family). It continues to be a gas!

I am an amateur and hobbyist for 3 years preceeded by 5 years of the same

back in the early 70's. Quit to chase the "almighty dollar" and ---caught some

but not all----- Am a retired equipment lessor living in the Las Vegas NV area.

Spent 13 years in Manly NSW and speak fluent Antipodean, both versions.

Just bought a scanner and have vowed to have something up on the Forum

by July 4th. Don't know how how I would get through a day without the Forum

since I use it as a substitute for gambling! Fondling my Leica's substitutes for

visits to gentlemen's clubs! Wife Julie, approves of both of the former--

Well, I'm a New Yorker (work in NYC, but live on Long Island). I've been trying my hand at image making for 55 years, mostly as an amateur, although I actually earned a few dollars in photography during the late fifties-including a time as a Army photog using a 4x5 Speed Graphic. I finally made it to the world of Leica M about fifteen years ago. I earn my living working for a consulting firm, but gain my real enjoyment from family and travel photography.


It's amazing how many have responded to this thread from across the globe. Great idea Sandy.
