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. NIKON D70    ---    50mm    f/8.0    1/100s    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.
