Another DPR fellow signs in

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by Philippe Roger, Feb 6, 2005.

  1. Hi folks,

    Uncle Frank called me yesterday and mentioned that I should check out this site and join it. So, I did and signed up. It's great to see so many names (even if slightly altered, like this Boobie guy :) ) from people which photography I enjoy very much.

    I too have been weaning from DPR, partly because of the endless and pointless discussions, but also because I have a D70 (since March 04), the old NTF home is no longer appropriate, and because I don't own one of those D100/D1/D2 cameras. I have been doing quite a bit of reading there, however...

    I live a few miles from Uncle Frank and we occasionally go out together. Here is a pic of him with my puppy, Belle, from a couple of months back.


    Even though I am not a bird specialist (it is sooooo difficult :!: ), I am sure I will have fun here and hope to contribute something useful too.
  2. Welcome, Philippe! It might be more appropriate to show a picture of you and Belle in this introductory post than of me.

  3. Welcome and one thing that looks good in both images is the dog :lol: Hope you enjoy your stay with us, I look forward to your posts. By the way you don't have to be a bird specialist to have fun here.

    Hi Philippe,
    A big welcome from me too........ I remember seeing your picture in some of Uncle Frank's posts back in DPR. Great to have you and I hope to see more of you and many more of your beautiful Belle.

  10. Well, thank you very much for the warm welcome!

    I appreciate the friendly atmosphere already!

    I'll be sure to post many more pics of our pets: in addition to the dog, we also have 4 cats. Besides, there are another 3 feral cats living outside, in the yard and under the house! Yes, it's a little bit of a menagerie, at times... :D

    Here is a teaser.


  11. Welcome aboard Phillippe.... It's been awhile since we last spoke. but it's good to see you here.
  12. Love the dog

    You can't go wrong with a Golden Retriever! Welcome to the new forum!

    I thought about chaning my alias too, but I figured I may as well keep it consistent through the message boards I post at.

    Ah well, great to see ya here.
