    Congratulations Sean!

    And also a big thanks to the moderators and all the enthusiasts who continue to make this the most lively, congenial and interactive photography site on the web.

    I have said it many times in the past and will repeat it here. I believe that without APUG the state of analog photography would be in very sorry shape indeed.

    For those who have been here since the beginning few months of APUG I hope you share my amazement with how much this site has grown and become a major influence maintaining and growing traditional photography.

    For those who are relatively new, welcome and thanks for sharing your passion for traditional photography no matter how long you have been exposing film. I believe that we have only scratched the surface of the potential of this site to enhance creativity and sharing of ideas and concepts among members around the world.

    Thanks Simon, that would be great. Would color be allowed? I'm afraid my camera would break if I put B&W in it again.

    I have noticed an explosion of posts to the gallery. Seems like a lot more images going up each day.

    Together with this, though, the number of views for an average image seems to be a little lower. I think this is due to the fact that with more images, the average time an image is on the sidebar or general view of the gallery is much lower.

    Matt

    I should add, it looks like the very interesting images still get 100-200 views.

    --added as edit:

    I checked through the galleries, and my impression is that the number of views is about the same as before.

    I think Mr. Goldfarb needs to get out more with that big ol camera of his.

    Mr. Goldfarb couldn't agree more! Maybe I'll ban myself for six months.

    That sounds great Simon, there will be many interested for sure. I'm finally on the verge of joining the group myself and can't wait to start filling a wall with postcards! Also thanks to the posters above for the nice comments

    Simon! How sweet! See... this is one of the many reasons I'm such a big Ilford fan (great products aside).

    Congrats on this site, Sean. I know that it has changed my photographic life in more ways than I can count! Thanks to all my fellow APUGgers for that!
