    Default I am back

    After talking to Mboy67 a few times, I have decided to come back to the forums tentatively. I will be quite honest and state that I have only visited this web site twice since last June, and that was as a guest. I couldn't log in recently, and I must thank you Shawn for whatever you have done. I hadn't forgotten my password; it just wouldn't allow me to log in.

    I have only done 3 short outings with a camera since the passing of my father. I sort of needed to find myself I guess, and to let some time pass before I could think of taking up a camera again.

    I don't have much to share, and as always, constructive criticisms are always welcome.

    I was actually thinking of you yesterday and here you are today. Nice to see you back Chako! I was starting to think we had lost you for good.

    #7 and the last one are my favorites.

    Thanks. It did feel odd to miss much of spring and summer. I did however force myself to get out once this fall at Bellevue Park. Even then, I missed the choicest time. So here are some of my not so great fall shots taken a little late.

    EDIT: Wow, my inbox was full of messages. However, the odd thing was that they were duplicated 6 or 8 times. Anyhow, its all 100% clear now.

    Welcome back Chako! Nice to see you and your lovely photography back on the board. As usual, I am in awe of your talent. The photo's are all stunning. Even in your sorrow, you didn't lose your touch. My sincere condolences on the loss of your father. I have also just experienced a great loss, and perhaps know some of the grief you feel. Keep that camera going!

    I too will add to the other in saying Welcome back!!! We did miss you.
    I too have lost a loved member of our family this summer. It was a rough year without a doubt, I know that we all feel some of what your feeling.

    As always your pics are wonderful, I'm so pleased to see you back.

    Very nice shots Chako - you've got a really good eye. I stole the one of the sun over the frozen lake for my background - hope you don't mind, but it's a great shot.

    I lost my own dad several years ago. Was pretty tough for a while. You never really do get over the loss, but at least now I smile when I think of him.

    You guys are all too kind.

    NoCasa, I do not mind.

    Yeah I needed the time away. I even mended a few broken fences so to speak.

    Anyways, here is the last batch of photos (5) from my paltry few outings.
