Is this thread great, or what?! We attract such a diverse group of folks with such fascinating life stories who are so committed to photography and to Nikon MF lenses that we don't spin off into subjects that could stir rancor or division. Amazing to be with folks willing to help each other out, to treat one another with respect, kindness, generosity. As Georg noted, it is a rather rare environment in cyberspace where folks seem intent on putting one another down for various and sundry reasons.
Love to hear a bit about your journey Ian. You definitely belong on this thread. I won't ask questions but I'm certainly intrigued by what you were doing during those years of traveling not as a journalist. The few photos you share are very evocative and definitely in contrast to your wonderful portraiture. And that you've organized your life around being as available as possible for your daughters raises your stock even higher. As many have already said, I'm delighted your found us. I know I've said that many times to many people who hang out in this corner of cyberspace, but it is true... with so many great people I encounter here, it remains for me the best place to be spending time when on the internet.
Thanks everyone for tending to this thread with such care.
