    I'm a (seemingly perennial) student in Boston who's had a love of photography for quite some time. While I've recently been doing a lot of work using a digital point and shoot, the death of said point and shoot combined with the fact that I'm doing a darkroom-based photo workshop next semester have brought me back to the analog fold, and not exactly kicking and screaming, either...

    My flickr is http://www.flickr.com/photos/madcrow and while lots of the most recent stuff is digital, much film-based work can be expected soon...

    You remind me five of my best years in life, when I was in Boston.
    Which school do you go to?
    You'll find a lot of people from NE here in APUG that you can actually meet in person.

    UMass Boston. Not exactly known for its photography program, but I'm doing art history and take pictures a darn sight better than I draw them, so photography is the fun way to fulfill my "art creation" requirements...

    Hello from Somerville! I miss my college darkroom something terrible. Still haven't set up a proper one as we rent our place and our landlady would freak if we built up walls in the basement... three enlargers. We need to find a house! :|

    Ah, I've spent many happy hours in its library.
    A girlfriend of mine used to be a student there and I used to drive her there then while she attended classes I would do research on all kinds of artistic material. I went to the School of the Museum of Fine Arts myself.
