    Hello there,
    recently signed up. My name is Jos Lek, and I live in Oegstgeest, a village near Leiden in The Netherlands. Difficult to pronounce, even for Dutch folks! :smile:
    I started photography when I was about 12 years of age, now 40 years ago!
    The camera's I use at the moment are Rolleiflex-T / Rolleicord III / Nikon F2 / Leica M2+M5.
    I recently became the owner of a Rollei SL66 with several lenses.
    The 6x6 format appeals to me very much, so I hope to start using the SL66 soon, having seen some nice results on this forum.
    My favorite subjects are landscapes and architecture. At the moment I shoot B&W and color, but my intention is to go for B&W, and start developing film myself.
    Up to now I haven't found the time for developing, although I have all the stuff needed sitting in a cupboard.
    Hope to learn from your experience, and get inspiration from your posted pics.

    Regards, Jos.

    6x6 is my medium format of choice, too! Welcome to the forum.

    Welcome here. I use 6x6 also, BW only, home processed in darkroom. A lot of fun.

    And a welcome from this end too (England) You have a better command of English than I do speaking Dutch. Yes I agree some of your words are real tongue twisters.
