    Hi new member from the UK. I took up photography again 2 years ago after an 18 year break. I shoot 35mm on Nikon F3HP,mainly of the "street" variety, mainly because I don't have an artistic bone in my body:smile: Looking forward to picking brains and learning something.
    Cheers, Lol

    I don't know about new chemicals and papers, although if I can persuade my teenagers to clear off to University/move out I can have a darkroom for at least processing and give it a try!
    I must say the sheer volume of topics to read in the forum subsections made my eyes light up, much to stimulate the little grey cells.
    Once again thanks to everyone for their welcome. Of all the photographic forums this has been the most welcoming.

    Cheers, Lol

    Welcome to APUG from NYC.

    As to the welcoming; although we may all be on a Ship of Fools, we're having a good time!
