    Hi all, I'm Jon and I've just found APUG the other day, after deciding to get back into traditional photography. I shot a lot of Tri-X in the 1980s with my Zenit 12XP but put it down when I discovered wine, women and song. Picked up again with digital a couple of years ago and whilst I shoot quite a lot, I've never quite captured the magic. Until I realised what was missing of course! I still have the 12XP and have dug it out of the loft, ordered some film, a tank and chemicals, and I'm ready to rock. I'll be popping up with daft questions from time to time I'm sure!

    Cheers
    Jon

    Welcome, from the far southwest of England.
    Give up the digital but not the wine and women.

    By God I hope that you find Frank Sinatra's statement "Love is lovlier the second time around" to be a significant understatement. There are, I feel, no daft questions. Draft horses and MGL draft are not the same thing. How nice that you are here.

    Welcome. Depending on where in Bucks you are we could be almost neighbours or a long way apart. If you are in the top end of N Bucks then the East Mids Monochrome Group might interest you. Meets in Earls Barton nr Northampton. Dave Miller is a member there and he's likely to be on this list of welcomers in the next day or so.
