has been a member since Jul 2007 and goes by novartelma45.

I like to use old vintage lenses on digital camera bodies. My current favorites are mostly 1930's 40's and 50's Contax and Robot lenses as well as wartime German lenses of all types.

I was once a folk-bluegrass guitarist/singer in the Washington DC area c.1973-1985. I am active in the dog rescue community. Some of the dogs I photograph are rescue dogs available for adoption in Northern Virginia/Washington DC area. If you fall in love with any, let me know.

It's good to finally be home
