Hello! I've been reading posts in your community for about a month now. Have finally gotten around to registering. I'm a friend of Manda's & Orie's. (hugs to you both) Manda guessed by the user name that it was me so I thought I should drop in and introduce myself. I've been thinking about taking a photography class but am nervous as heck about having to show my work to a class full of people. (Last took a class about 15 years ago~where does the time go?) I'm also thinking about a new camera but haven't even started looking. I currently have a Minolta x-700 and a Vivitar Series 1 (70-210mm) lense that I recently dropped while on vacation. :cry: Since both have been around for awhile it may just be time for something new. Anyway, everybody seems really nice. I've enjoyed finding my way around here and hope to post more soon.
