Q: I am really into my wildlife photography but cannot afford a super zoom lens, I have a 300mm and am considering a teleconvertor. Has anybody had a experience with these and would you recommend them?

A: Do you know?

This is the farm where I grew up. West 12th Street.
It was a dairy farm. We also sold eggs, and raised hogs. There were 80 acres in which corn and hay was harvested. My Mother had a huge garden you can see in the lower center. No matter where I have ever lived, this is the only place I will ever call home. When I was young, how I longer to leave for the city. When I grew up, how I longed to be back there. This will always be home, if only in my memories. The farm was sold in the late 50's and broken in to lots. I am so happy to still have this picture. My sister returned there a few years ago. All that was left was the house.

I never wanted to return as I knew it was all changed and I wanted to remember it as it was when I was a child.

    It is wonderful to preserve those good memories...I need to organize my film pictures and my mothers ablums also to scan them in but will need to get rid of some of my digital pictures I no longer want to find room for more...There are never enough hours in the day for all that I'd like to do:)
