Going to start posting here more often, looks like Greg is the only one posting here. Hopefully more people will start contributing here again, have always enjoyed Steve's very friendly forum with some great photographers.

G'day TG

Yeah Tom, Mike raised this Q recently as well - where have all the others gone to ... apart from off into the sunset doing landscapes while on holidays

I have also noticed fewer & fewer responses to my images as posted over the last 12 months or so - so hoping for better times ahead

Im still here reading the posts, but since my stoke last year I don't get around very much, and it left me with a very hard time taking photographs due to the pain and weakness in my hands. But I still enjoy very much reading the forum and seeing the photos. The weakness in my hands caused me to drop and break my beloved E-3. But I found a used E-5 in good shape, nd I'm hopeful that my hands will soon be strong enough to start photographing again. (I also have difficulty typing, so I can't comment as often as I would like.

G'day Steven

Hey mate - very sorry to hear about your stroke & its ongoing issues ... but as long as you still can 'heckle' us young-fellas we'll very much enjoy hearing from you as well

The entire group of forums on this website are pretty dead. I was scanning ones where you'd expect significant traffic recently, namely Nikon and Canon. It's just silly how dead those are.

Hi Steven! Glad to see your post and I hope more time see's improvement in your condition. The man who has lead my photography club's field trips the past several years (and in his mid-80's now) had a mild stroke a few days ago and I thought about you as I read about what happened to him.

Hi,

I'm glad to see your post, Steven. Keep fighting the good fight and I look forward to seeing you posting your photos again.

Me, I don't take photos much these days as my Parkinson's has made it difficult to walk. And, if I do post, it's likely to be on Facebook. I still visit this site to see what's new.

Also, some of you old timers may remember Andrzej Wrotniak a Fellow who had a website that specialized in everything to do with Olympus cameras. His site went dormant for a few years. Well he's back at it and has a lot of new articles on micro four thirds cameras, lenses, etc. his site is: Wrotniak.net

Hi zig. Thanks for letting us know that Dr. Wrotniak's web site is back active. A great resource for any Olympus user.

Hi all,

I am still there ... just having a busy life! Got myself the EM-1 MK II and I am very happy with it. I had to get rid of the MK I and some old lenses to buy it ... as well as my Fuji X-E2s (which I didn’t like too much).

Did my first solo exhibit last June .... no sales but still fun the get planning for it ... you can take a look at it at https://www.agilephotograf.com

I’ll try to come back more often!

Gilles

G'day Gilles

Had a sqwiz at your solo exhibition material ... some appeals, some doesn't > just shows our selective likes / dislikes ... and full marks for going solo
