    Greetings, my name is Krystyna, I live in CT, and I am happy to have found this forum, I have learned so much already, and it is good to know there are some local folks around here too. I am relatively new to traditional B & W, I've been taking classes for the past two years, and have now set up a darkroom and workroom, it is all very exciting, and it has been very expensive (!), as you all know. I also moved up to medium format this year, and am still getting used to the "square". My favorite master photographer is Minor White, not only for his photography, but also for his approach to his life and his work. I look forward to participating in this forum, and hopefully meeting some of you New Englanders on your next field trip/outing. :smile: :smile: :smile:

    Hi Krystyna,
    I'm in neighboring New York State and have worked in, and driven through CT. many times. Mostly along the coast. It is a beautiful and varied State for photography.

    You've found a great site. I'm always amazed by the range of knowledge and willingness to share there is here.

    I hope that you'll post some of your photographs in the gallery.

    Welcome to APUG, Krystyna! I grew up around Hartford and now live outside Boston. Still got family all over CT though and visit a couple of times a month. Hope you'll participate in our NE regional get-together about a possible show or two.

    Thanks from CT!

    Thanks to all both near and far for the warm welcomes!

    Also, to WhiteyMorange, like you I too grew up in the Hartford area, in Hartford, it was a great place to grow up back in those days, I still live relatively nearby, and visit often enough.

    Lastly, to JJStafford, in answer to your question, see the above, do you too have a connection to CT?

    Blessings,
    Krystyna

    Hartford up to '53, Wethersfield until '61. Before all that it was Warwick, R.I.. A long time ago, eh?

    No, my hair isn't white yet. :smile:

    Grew up in Southington, wife is from Manchester, moved to NH, get back to CT all the time (family and all). A New England get together would be wonderful.

    Welcome, you'll love APUG for the great information and the greater people.
