    Well, after a painfully long break from photography, I'm back! The past year in college was a busy one, and next one won't be any easier, but at least I have the summers (and winters) to shoot and print...

    Just thought I'd let my APUG fellows know I'm back. A couple of you emailed me during my absence, which I greatly appreciate, and in a way pushed me back into the darkroom.

    So, anyway, I'll be browsing the forums every now and then, and hopefully printing all I can before the fall comes around.

    Welcome home, Andre.
    Isn't it a PITA when real life interferes our photography?

    Thanks, Jay and Neal.

    Jay, the time away certainly has been productive, giving me my Associates in Arts (not much, but its a start), and convincing me that even though I will major in Philosophy, photography will stay with me my whole life.

    which ties in with Neal,

    PITA is right!!! Now I just need to figure out a way to reconcile the two. Who knows, I might have to double major due to absurd credit requirements, so maybe a bachelor's in visual arts (or photography) will be a good way to go.

    Time will tell...

    Thanks... You guys have no idea (or actually, probably do) how good it feels to be back in the darkroom. Man, it was silly happy.
