Hi everyone,
I am looking forward to meeting all of you and learning some things about photography. Just 2 yrs into this hobby but trying to take in as much as I can.
Online photography communities sure beat buying a $24 magazine full of ads.
Here's to getting this thing off the ground! :D

i didn't mean i don't ever want to see ads. What I meant to say is it is a bummer to pay $24 for a photo mag and have so many ads and so little substance.

Hey MikeSF, welcome.

I do have an answer to your Magazine ad issues. I have hundreds of Photo Magazines that I can cut all of the advertising out of... I will then sell them to you for $12, a 50% saving over the ad filled mags you are buying now.

I should warn you that cutting out all ads will leave only about 20 pages of content.
But this could be a win / win for everybody.

The extra cash may even help stop the foreclosure on my home...

It's hard when you don't know people enough to know whether they're joking or not...I want to make a joke, but if you're really losing your home, it's not appropriate...

Yes now in retrospect the "losing the house" line may have pushed the joke a bit far! Expecially at this time! It was just a macro shot I took of a pen with the word foreclosure reflected off of a magazine.

My bad...

Feel free to make your joke now!

OK, i figured out how to upload my profile image, and should go on record saying that this pic was shot by Mr Pink. thanks sir!
i did have to crop it into a square but Pink's original image is a long wide rectangle.

Was it complicated? Should it be made easier? (no offense intended, I'm asking for honest feedback)
