I am an avid photographer, starting back in 1972 after joining the Perry Fire Department as a fire photographer. I just completed 40 years of service in April 2012. I am also a member of
International Organization of Fire Photographers and do pictures for our local Perry Herald which is a local hometown weekly newspaper. I am a member of the Empire State Antique Truck Association out of Batavia where I have been doing truck show pictures since 1995. I just this past February 2012 joined the Great Lakes & Attica Central Model Railroading Club out of Wyoming, NY. I have over 80,000 photos since 1972 in my collection of prints , digitals, both color and black & white & enlargements. I have several Minolta 35mm camera's and lenses along with 3 - DSLR Digital Camera's. I average about 10,000 pictures a year and spend weekends going to Truck & Car Shows. Our truck club goes to different places each month from May to September for our meetings and from October to April our meetings are held at the Gee & Dee's Restaurant located inside the Marilla Kwikfill on Rt. 354 in Marilla and seats about 50 some people each month. We enjoy just spending the day sitting by the lakeside at Canandaigua Lake. I have already made reservations go to Lake George this year for the 2013 Adirondack Balloon Festival from September 16th to the 23rd. On that same weekend is the Hudson/Mohawk Antique Truck Show in Ballston Spa, NY. I would like to visit their show this year cause they have a 2 - day show too. We also have our Empire State Antique Truck Show at the Stafford Firemens Grounds on Route 5 in Stafford, NY on August 03, & 04 2013. This is always a great show and gets bigger every year. Check out my websites here on Flickr and my new website at www.jimduellcollection.org My Konica Minolta 7D after 33,800 pictures quit working after getting nothing but black screen photos. Well, after doing research on the matter I got so upset with this ordeal I just picked up the camera and shook it and shook it and then shook it some more that all that shaking I turned on the camera and took a picture and WALA !! it worked with a nice picture. Good thing that the trash can wasn't very close. I had just purchased a Sony A700 Digital 10.2 MP Camera. Hopefully this will last another 8 years or longer. Carol likes using my Sony A330l Digital. After spending 8 weeks taking a photography course she really likes using this camera. Today is July 31, 2013 and now have done 4,850 pictures so far this year. With still 4 car and truck shows yet to attend and our week in the Adirondacks in late September yet to go it will probably another 10,000 picture year or better.
