1st post on this thread.(I think.) I'll turn 70 next month. Been here for a long time and have picked up many good tips, and enjoyed tons of great photos from the members who grace us with their great pictures.

Just turned 85 in April---Still "trekking" about with 25-30 Lb.'s of gear; but the gear seems to be getting heavier, & me, a bit slower than I recall.

Late to this thread. Joined 3/18/2002. Not much posting, 297 in 15 years. Nice to see some familiar names and folks where one's word in the B/S forum was the gold standard.

Gerry! I did one of my first buy/sell deals with Gerry way back when. Without looking, I think It was in the springtime of 2004 when I signed up after lurking for a while.

I just came across this post just today. I'm quite pleased that I spotted something good and worthwhile that Fred created, and I still check the site every day.

Thanks Fred.

I had a D30 then moved onto getting a 1D. I used to watch Fredís postings and always admired the way he could get a 1D photo to just dazzle. I was so frustrated with my 1D (still got the darn thing) that I swore off buying a new 1D. Wasnít until I bought a 1DsIII that I fell in love with the 1D series again. I bought the 1Dx and then after that I bough5 the 1DxII.

Time flies!

John, you must have been Fred's friend back then, or just lucky enough to have found this place on it's first day.

Pure happenstance. But, also, the web was less crowded with content back then. But fredmiranda.com has stood the test of time.

I remember well the first 200 usernames who first joined the site. It was a very small group when it all started.
It's not easy to remain relevant in the era of social media.
Thanks for your continuous support!

Yes and I started year 2004 off with my New Years resolution to FM after lurking for 2 years. All the other photo websites have long disappeared from my "bookmarks". Fred is is the "Soul Survivor"! Rolling Stones version!

Itís the site that has what I would call normal people, the other site has some people that are just downright rude and that is why I left that other site. I go back there from time to time to see, but often leave again as I am reminded again why I think this is the best photography site on the net.

I'm coming up to my 14th anniversary. Hadn't been doing much film photography for years, but then I bought a 10D. Realized I didn't know what was going on and needed some help. Found FM after Googling around during the Christmas break.

I've made some good friends here, especially on Mustang Air to Air. Digital and FM literally changed my life.

Thank you Fred!

FM has simply been key in my photographic life, so I can only say thanks to all for the adventure, the learning and the experience.

I need to sign up my Croatian Grandma to FM forum, so she would be the oldest member. She is 98 and still rocking. The only problem is that she is near-blind, so she wouldn't be able to comment on posted images. Plus, she doesn't speak English. The way I would convince her to become FM member is by telling her that The Pop is also a member of FM.

Back when I first joined it was Fred Miranda's site and Rob Galbraith's site that were the two active photo discussion places on the world wide web.

Speaking of age. Most people don't realize that Fred was such a youngster when he created this place.
