Another old fart joins the forum! I'm a retired ex-university student counsellor, now living in bliss in a small coastal village on this beautiful island off the coast of South Australia. I've been taking photos on and off for around 60 years. My experiences with digital photography have led me almost to grind to a halt. I don't want to run it down - it has its place - but film is what makes my soul sing. Happily, I've just bought a Mamiya 645 1000s and a Pentax MX and I'm going to build myself a darkroom in the garage. I feel liberated and ready to go again. This forum seems like a place where civilized, intelligent and friendly people hang out and I really love the idea that if more people keep signing up we're keeping film alive. I haven't made a print for forty years and I've forgotten everything, so I'm hoping to browse and ask advice and join in where I can.
