I have been lurking here for awhile, and just recently registered. I enjoy this site very much - and also find there are a number of familiar faces (so to speak) from other sites.

Unfortunately, I have very little of any quality to show you on a website, but look forward to sharing in the future. I am an amateur with a life long love of film, and at one time toyed with the idea of making a living at it.
I have been away from serious photography for a decade and just recently dove back in.

I shoot large and medium format mostly, but do enjoy my new Canon 35mm as well. Old eyes appreciate auto-focus!

Anyway, it is good to be here, and i look forward to seeing all of your images.

You must be a Keith Carter fan, I seem to recall he named one of his books Mojo....

Glad to have you!

No,

Years ago, in Miami, I knew a Haitian woman who practiced Santaria (sp?) and she claimed that I gave her good luck (not sure why to this day). She called me her "good mojo" (ala Voodoo), or just Mojo - and the nickname stuck. Many people I was aquainted with knew me for years and never knew my real name.

These days I move in a very different circle where the name might not be appreciated - but I still am Mojo to my close friends.
I use a number of variations as "usernames" on the internet.

Santaria? Obviously nothing more than baseless superstition. No one here would be interested.

Uh... do you do "Outcalls"???

At one point after listening many times to Junior Wells' "Hoodoo Man" and Muddy Waters' more well known "I got my mojo working," I did a little research to discover just what a mojo or a "mojo hand" was supposed to be, and why you had to go down to Luziana to get one, and what John dekonkeroo had to do with it. Apparently a mojo hand is a spice bag that gives power or luck to the wearer and fends off evil spirits, and John the Conquerer root is one of the herbs included in the bag.

Welcome!

It also commonly contains charms or other "special" objects. Hmmmm... there's a series - Mojos of various types.
