After 51/2 years, I have decided I will no longer post on this forum. I am not, nor have I ever claimed to be, as good a photographer as those who post here. I posted pictures of things that interested me and, I hoped, people on the forum. From the lack of responce , I have found that this is not the case.

I have tried to be part of the solution by comment without responce and posting without comments. My participation (or lack of it) will make no difference in this forum. It will continue to die a slow death due to apathy.

I will lurk occasionally, hoping to see some of Ken's raptor shots, and because he promised me that when he died I could have the box to his 300mm if he could find it. The friends that I have made on the forum, I can communicate with by e-mail without the problem of double posting.

I hope that all of you find the perfect camera for your use and the perfect way and place to use it.

Thank you for all the help I did get here, a long time ago.
