    Hello everyone :smile: I'm 22, living in Wales.

    I've had analog photography gear around me all my life thanks to my dad, but I'm only now starting to seriously put myself to learning photography as an art... I've been using digital cameras for a couple of years, mostly on auto or P, I'm sorry to say, but now I've found my way back to analog and hope to spend many happy years with it and manual cameras. :smile:

    That's providing they keep making film, of course.

    Welcome to APUG rl, from western New England. If the analog community keeps on growing and adding new members such as yourself, film will be around for quite a while.
    I hope you'll enjoy your many visits to this site.

    Wales ... I'd wish you good light, but it's howling a bl**dy gale up my valley. Probably be weeks before we see the sun again in Ponty. :D

    Welcome from Sydney. My wife's family is originally from South Wales and I had a look around the place in April 2000. Good to see another youngster joining APUG!

    Thanks everyone!

    Sandeha, the light is pretty decent in my area at the moment (Pembrokeshire), but I have no film to capture it with! :sad:

    I have a batch of HP5 and Delta 400 on the way though :smile:

    Welcome from another Middle Englander. There an active little cadre from Wales on APUG. Maybe not as far West as you. Spent a week in Solva almost 12 months ago. Great scenery and walks around the harbour and St Davids. Weather for November was terrific.

    Croeso.

    I'm in East Anglia but regularly in the Black Mountains and the Beacons, and quite often around Welshpool and Aberystwyth. Less excuse to go to Pembrokeshire though, alas, even though a cousin used to be organist at St. David's. I envy you your coast - though I get better skies :smile:
