    Hey everybody,

    This is my virgin post on this board. My name's Mike a.k.a. The Sandman. I've been watching ya'll from the shadows for a couple weeks now...waiting until I got my first 35mm SLR in the mail so I could join the forum. I finally got it (Canon Elan 7n) but they sent me the wrong lense!

    But I shot a roll with the lense anyway before sending it back...and I figured I'd use these for my first post. Just remember...there's a reason why I sent the lense back. Don't be shy...give me some feedback on 'em.

    Hopefully, I'll get my new lense in the mail by next week so I can show yall what I can do.

    There's always a few of us in every forum. What city are you in?

    That's my friend Rob.

    Thanks for all the feedback, everybody. Keep it comin'.

    P.S.- There's a huge protest going on outside right now (I work across the street from the capitol) and I can't take any shots because I have no lense...missed oppurtunities.

    Welcome to the forums!! If you can shoot like that with the wrong lens..I can only imagine what we'll see when you get the right one. :D
