A friendly hello from cold, wet, grey Australia! Newfoundland featured on a mini-doco of Canada on TV down just a here a few days ago. It was about a solo traveller (Brit)— name forgotten, traversing Canada and the NW on motorbike, bus, boat...anything. Not particularly gripping as a presenter, but absolutely beautiful, inspiring scenery and lots of fascinating stuff about lobster fishing, too.
“The photographer must determine how he wants the finished print to look before he exposes the negative.
Before releasing the shutter, he must seek 'the flame of recognition,' a sense that the picture would reveal
the greater mystery of things...more clearly than the eyes see." ~Edward Weston, 1922.
Thanks Nick! Wow, who was the first? I thought I was the only photographer living on the island. A tourist?

This might interest you if you possibly are looking to get that DR into production in a manner to adapt to your needs, there was a thread here a few months back where Sean (Apug founder) was getting feedback for DR flow to aid a special need re his back, maybe this thread can inspire, if not, start another thread, you know Apug folks love to help:
Glen, Welcome to APUG.
Well...there goes the neighborhood...another 'Goofy Newfie' joins the club. Please laugh!
I have a lot of fond memories of 'New-fun-land.' Lived two years in Stephenville, (Harmon Field).
You have a beautiful body of work on display, from a beautiful part of the world.
Thanks for sharing, and again, welcome.

A very warm welcome to APUG from sunny South Africa. I look forward to seeing some of your work in the galleries. Your collection sounds wonderful, I'm a teeny bit envious. Yes, some of us also shoot digital (like you've I've recently returned to the darkroom after an absence of 30 years), we just don't discuss digital or hybrid techniques, processes or equipment on APUG.

Welcome to APUG!
Always nice to see new people from other parts of the world. I hope you'll find the place welcoming and informative. I can assure you, this is the place to get advice, opinions and facts. I've always thought of dogs and rain and green landscape when someone mentions Newfoundland.

Welcome to APUG. I looked at your landscape and black & white galleries and enjoyed the images. Nice work!
Welcome Glen, from the other end of the country.
And those who also use digital here are more than welcome - we just prefer to talk (type?) about other things.
“Photography is a complex and fluid medium, and its many factors are not applied in simple sequence. Rather, the process may be likened to the art of the juggler in keeping many balls in the air at one time!”
