View Full Version : Hi From Napa,Calif.

02-24-2006, 11:32 PM
I joined about a month ago in order to buy a lens from one of the members here on the "ForSale" forum. I am a strictly amateur photog and just enjoy taking pictures and viewing photos taken by others to aquire more knowledge of my hobby. I have had several different Olympus cameras and have never mastered any of them. I live in Napa Ca. and most of the pics that I take are from the valley and from around the Bay Area in general. I like to learn about the cameras and techniques of taking photos and don't take things too seriously,but instead try to enjoy everything about the art of photgraphy.

Wow, this is getting really strange - when you see most of the gang from over at dpreview, posting here. This site will take a few days (or a week) to become accustomed to, if only because it looks different. Once you've adjusted, however, like anything else you will get used to it. I think that folks sometimes steer away from anything new because of the familarity of things they've done in the past. Force yourself to come here daily - even if only to read, and in this way the format will grow on you really quick.

Hey Kanji,

I didn't see this. Didn't realize you were in Nape till just the other day. I'm in Vacaville. I have friends over there and get over to Napa every once in awhile.

Welcome Kanji-

Nice to see another nearby Oly shooter. Looking forward to some photos from that beautiful Napa Valley.

Thanks everyone,small world,lots of people from the bay area on the forum. I lived in Vacaville at one time,Ann. Yes, you all should come to the valley,as the mustard plants are coming out now. It is a very colorful time and makes for some nice scenics.

Hi Kanji,

I just spent last night and today in Napa helping a friend. I didn't have my cameras with me, but it's just as well because of all the rain.:( I'll be back up there again soon, though.

Didn't think I would be back in Napa again so soon.:) Am here now since yesterday helping a friend with flooring. Will probably go back to Vv sometime tonight.
