View Full Version : Greetings from Eastern Kansas

2-Oct-2006, 17:41
Hello to everyone! I just discovered your forum, and am exited to use it to help me learn more about my photographic hobby. My wife and I am a year now in our new house, and it's time for me to build a darkroom again. I've been in the law enforcement profession for more than 20 years and while just a rookie was fortunate enough to attend the Kansas City Missouri Crime Scene School. I was taught photographic theory on a Crown Graphic 4 x 5, and developed a real admiriation of large format photography from that experience. As a working evidence technician I photographed many crime scenes. I wonder if that's why I'm such an avid fan of WeeGee? Anyway, I just thought I'd introduce myself a bit, and wish you all a fabulous October!

Welcome to the LF Forum, Dave.

Would you believe the full quote often attributed to Weegee was, "F/8 and be there, along with the CSIs"? ;)

Kansas is a fabulous place for landscape photography. Let's see some pix real soon.

Ralph and Ken,
thanks very much. As for WeeGee, I think he'd still find plenty of F8 fodder in the gritty city. And, I plan on a fall trip a couple of hours away to the Flint Hills for some of my first photos after the darkroom is up and running.

Hi Dave,

Welcome to the LF world. I'm in Eastern Ks, near Burlington. There's a few of us scattered around here.

Here's a quick view of some Flint Hills.

Hi Dave,
Welcome to the LF forum.I now live in Seattle, but I was born and raised in Wichita. Seems I needed to get away for a while to be able to see the state in a different perspective. Though I truly believe Kodak manufactured this state just to sell a buttload of film. I have, with Alexs' view, gained a whole new appreciation for my home state.
