    Hello from Washington State...

    Hello all...

    Although I've visited this forum before, I just recently joined and began reading it regularly, so I thought I'd introduce myself. This is a great place--lots of expertise, and a friendly and cooperative atmosphere.

    I am a recently retired teacher (high school mathematics), and I've been involved with photography at what I guess would be called the serious amateur level since shortly after I graduated from college in 1971. For most of that time, most of my work has been black and white landscapes and cityscapes. I usually use a 4x5 camera, and sometimes an 8x10. Since I retired, I've had much more time to put into photography--e.g., one or two darkroom sessions a week rather than one every two or three months.

    Most of my camera and darkroom equipment is 20+ years old, and I haven't paid much attention to keeping current. While I don't feel particularly constrained by the equipment I use, I'm looking forward to learning enough from this forum to upgrade where it makes sense, and to improve my working methods. While I've been at it for quite a while, there seem to be many on this forum who know much more than I do, so I'm sure I'll be posting a lot of questions.

    Welcome, Gordy!

    Seems like 20+ year old equipment just doesn't sound that old anymore!

    20+ years.... you've got one of those new fangled camera. I just started shooting with a 5x7 that will reach it's 100th Birthday next year. It's a blast to use. Of course, I try to look for something that's at least 100 years as well. Welcome to the group.
