Good Morning All!......White Beard....you and I could talk for hrs on photography!....I had two Mamiya 645 RZ ProII's had, with 9 220 backs and all of the lenses....even the heavy zoom! I hated to give them up, but I sold them all at the perfect time before they werent worth anything anymore. Sad to see them go...and way before their time. Wonderful system! We use White Lightning's in the studio, and I think I have 11 heads. We will keep some of the equipment from the sale though, so that I can stll play a little. Just like you, ...it was the best job I ever had. I saw your photo on Chuzty's photo site....you look like a gentel Giant! :)
Jag we live just outside a fairly large city, and have every store you can think of for our Kitty needs, but Thank you for the reminder.
My lady....soo happy to hear from you, and hope all is good with you. Please keep in touch, when you feel up to it, as we all enjoy your company. Photos will be posted probably sometime by next Monday....we have such a busy weekend comming up...just like the rest of you!....now go away and Scramo Whamo! :)
Golitho, we have enjoyed the sports photography greatly, and every once in a while I get to see some of my work hanging in a clients home....it makes me swell up with pride, and my wife says I have the big head all the time. We cant go anywhere, without some parent or little kid coming up and say "Hey Photo Guy" I just laugh! it tickles me so much. This last year we started a new program, where any child that has cancer and is playing any of the sports....I give them a signed photo of me and the child together...and a specila hand written get well letter...and two movie tickets. I love doing this for the little ones...and so far we have had two players in the program.
Unique, I hope your right about the Kitty connecting to me because of my health, but really I bought him for the wife...and she knows that....she told me that I made a lot of points with her for doing that....I'm just glad that life isn't pointless now for me! :)
Privey, Thank you also for your concern, and I will post a update sometime today...My appt is 10:00am today
Thank you all...it means so much to me..to have people who care.
