I've been lurking on some photo sites for a couple of weeks and decided to join one. My name is Patrice but call me Pat. My wife and I moved to Calgary about 10 years ago. She's Brittish and I'm French Canadian. I've been taking pictures since my teenage years, first with a Graflex, then with a Rolleiflex, gravitated to Nikon FM-2 and F4s. Got a D70 three years ago and recently acquired a Nikkor 70-200 VR for it. I also use a Nikkor 85 1.4 IF attached to a D80 and a Nikkor 17-55 2.8 DX attached to a D200. I'm certainly not a 'photographer', I just like taking pictures. Our 5 year old little girl is my recent favorite topic - she has no choice the poor dear. I hope to learn lots, especially about digital processing and hopefuly be a useful and enthusiastic participant. Thanks All.
