I grew up in Cleveland, Ok. a little burg just N.W. of your fair city. I lived in Sapulpa for 12 years and spent many hours at the Tulsa Zoo with my kids. I don't know where Arnie's is. Let me know, please
Grandbury is a great town to burn some film in. I met with some guys from Texas and Ok for meeting of Russian camera collectors at Turner Falls in southern Ok a year or so ago. Maybe we could schedule a meeting there to take some film of the falls and eat some bbq. Any other ideas?
Say this group is coming alive. Responses from 2 in Dallas and 2 in Ok. Since the weather is so unpredictable at this point, I just want to propose a meeting sometime later in the spring. Some of the members of CVUG in San Fran got together and reportedly had a great time. I know another fellow that has a great collection of Kiev RF gear, including a beautiful Orion 28mm. Just some ideas.
I am familiar with 2nd and Elgin. My wife and I enjoy the blues and have attended several concerts at The Old Lady on Brady. Boy would I like to take the Bessa R with Ilford's Delta 3200 and shoot some photos there. Let's think about getting together some time in late March or early April. I have some Soviet rf cameras in addition to a Leica and the VC Bessa R. Have you seen the messages from those in Baja Oklahoma, i.e. south of Red River. Keep me posted!
Do any of you Texicans or Okies ever travel to the US ? Any border crossing troubles ?
I uster govaroo malinky Ruskavo yazika (sorry). I have a Fed Elmar on the way for my IIIC, but I guess my interest is more in photography than cameras. Anybody aspiring to a next generation digital Leica or Epson CV?
I travel outside the U.S. on occasion. My wife and I hope to vacation in the wonderful country of New Mexico this summer and visit Santa Fe and your fair city. Ya govoru nemnoga parusski tozhe. I have a Leica IIIc with an Industar 50, colapsible and really love it. Besides the Bessa R, it is the next most used rangefinder in 35mm I have. Do you ever cross the border?
Well, its too hot here. I fear leaving a camera in a car because it would melt. How does this fall sound to everyone? Late September in Dallas or some other location would be cooler. We just need to pick a photographic place.
