    Hi everyone,
    I live in the middle of England and am very glad to have found a community that shares my passion!
    I like all forms of photography, but the hype concerning digital photography leaves me somewhat breathless and unhappy.
    I am not a great artist, but I enjoy taking pictures, and I have always had my own darkroom (currently with an LPL 7425 - an investment for a lifetime, I hope!)
    I use 35 mm, 6x7, and large format 4x5 cameras, to 90 % b&w, and the rest slides.

    Good to see so many likeminded people here!

    All the best

    Ansgar

    Belated welcome . . .

    Welcome Ansgar, from Sydney Australia.

    I will wave when I fly over England in a couple of weeks on my way to Belgium.

    Enjoy your time on APUG.
