I've only discovered the Irish APUG corner today. Nice! I'm a four-year old import to Ireland and I live in Glencormack, Co Wicklow - about 5 minutes from Bray and 1 minute from Little Sugar Loaf.
I've been shooting and printing B&W on-and-off for some 25 years but I only I switched to 4x5 about 5-6 years ago. I take a lot of digital too, but I really want to go back to my silver roots. Right now I am rebuilding my darkroom in my utility room.
Please keep me on your mailing lists in case of any events etc.
Hi Rafal and welcome to APUG, as you can see by the other threads we do meetup and shoot some stuff from time to time. We're plotting an exhibition and run workshops and stuff. Hope you can post often and happy new year to you too.
Thanks for the many welcomes! Glad to know that if I run out of developer I can look for some a few doors down the road.
I didn't want to bore you with all the details of my travels, but since Catherine asked... I'm part of the Polish invasion in a way. I left Krakow 18 years ago for London and I slowly made my way to Ireland over the past few years.
The move from UK damaged my Gem 405 enlarger which was good news as I had insured it well. This allowed me to replace it with a nice DeVere 405 with an Ilford 500 head which is the centrepiece of the darkroom I am rebuilding at present. I miss not having Silverprint just a few stops away on the Underground - those guys had everything a B&W fan needed. But now I know where I can find you.
I look forward to meeting you in person in the future.
