Occupaion: Retired Interests: Photography, Model Trains, Travel Biography: My dad gave me my first Kodak when I was 7. He had a Leica M3, and a Speed Graphic, tha he brought home from WWII. He later traded the leica for an F2, and thats what got me hooked on Nikon. We used to spend many hours in his darkroom before I got married and moved out, an to this day I get nostalgic whenever I smell developer and stop bath.
It was several years before I bought my first Nikon(an FG20), then I traded for a FE-2. I used it until my eyes started getting bad, and then traded for a N70 w/35-105AFD(which I still use).
For my 60th birthday my bride bought me a D80, and that is what I shoot with most of the time. Since I retired I have much more time for my photography(now if I could only make it pay). Website: not set
