Think Tank Streetwalker HardDrive Winner

The winner of the Think Tank Streetwalker HardDrive backpack giveaway was Alan Gornstein.  I asked Alan to share a little bit about himself as a photographer.  His reply follows:

I’m an old Nikon and Kodachrome hand. Love the technical end and used to develope my own slides and make Cibachrome Pro prints. Even mixed my own chemicals. After my kids talked me into a point and shoot, the Nikons were put in the display case, and I never looked back! The timing of this win couldn’t be better-I just got a G1 with the 15-45 and 45-200 lenses, and don’t have anything to put them in.

Thanks to everyone that took time to enter.  Also, a big thanks to Think Tank Photo for sponsoring the contest.
