    Happy Easter all APUG members !

    As I have been using the APUG website for quite some time to find knowledge and inspiration when it comes to classic photography, I thought it is on time that I present myself.
    I am 58 years old, living in Gothenburg , Sweden, and I have been interested in photography all since I was 14. That interest has increased constantly over the years and nowadays it is a full time commitment. I have used both negative colour , slide film and black and white, but nowadays more than 90% of my work is in black and white. To me, digital photography has never been an alternative even though I am well aware of that digital technique in many cases can yield high quality results. Personally I am not able to connect emotionally to a computer in the same way as I do to a negative in the enlarger.
    I am grateful to all of you who have shared your knowledge with so many like-minded and whenever I have usefull experience, I will be more than happy to contribute.

    Best regards to all of you from

    Karl-Gustaf Hellqvist

    Thank you for welcoming

    Thank you all for a warm welcome greeting. This realy feels like a good environment to continue in.
    For you Mike C , I forwarded your suggestion about an SWC in an Easter egg to the local hen-house. There was an intense turmoil and a loud rumbling and finally all the hens threatened to contact their union and to go on a nationwide egg-strike ! When I realised that we might not get any eggs for Easter, well then ------ I chickened out !
    Perhaps another time.
    Best regards to all of you from

    K-G Yes I guess it's bad timing to ask for the SWC egg right now with Easter almost here,I could understand they are pretty busy with making regular eggs right now. Better to wait for things to slow down.
