Nikon cameras, friends, a place to call my own, a great family, a couple of dogs, a nice hot cup of coffee on my desk, some good quality wine stashed away, ANPAT 14 coming up...
A new member (mis)posting a reply to one of our oldest topics we have and made it bubble up from the layers of Nikonians history, made me reflect on this and on how cool it is that the Nikonians community is around. Thanks to all of you who ARE the community, who are participating, making photography a joy and to help friendships form.

I've been a proud member of Nikonians since early in 2004. Yes it's a great life.
I'm really looking forward to seeing some existing Nikonian friends and making some new ones during ANPAT 14. ANPAT 6 convinced me that Nikonians is really the community that Bo, JRP, and others claim it to be. ANPAT is one of the premier Nikonian's events. To me it's the best way to experience the community.
