    Hi all

    First post so I thought I'd better start in the right place.
    I'm Mike, I'm 34 and I live across the river from Plymouth so I'm proud to say I'm Cornish!
    I've been shooting DSLR's for the last 7 years but I have recently seen the light and after selling all my L glass lenses and DSLR's I now just use my Bronica SQ-A, 80mm and 200mm.
    I cant believe how much more I enjoy photography now compared to when I shot digital!
    I set my darkroom up a couple weeks ago and have so much to learn in there but all in good time.

    Really happy I found APUG!

    Cheers
    Mike

    Hi Mike from another Cornishman.

    Glad you've seen the light (or rather the dark !)

    Hi Mike,
    Welcome and I hope to see you sometime in Cornwall or in other 'foreign' parts of the UK ! I shall look out for the Broni and the 80 + 200.

    Welcome back Me 'ansom,

    We wondered where you was too all this time. We got enough pixies here so there's no need to go playing with them upcountry pixels.

    Best wishes from Penzance.

    Regards Daniel

    Welcome from northern Indiana, USA! I have some Cornish cousins and would love to see Altarnun and Launceston, where my ancestors lived.
