    Hello from Hobart!

    Hi APUG members,

    My name is Karl and I'm from Hobart, Tasmania, Australia.
    I have a black and white darkroom, and I shoot mostly 35mm, but I do love getting out with the TLR.
    I've been popping in and out of this site for about two years now; but I've decided it's about time I joined.

    I have an obsession with art, images, music, sound, words, expression, people: life. This obsession includes cameras: I'm always amazed at photography; images made by a machine/light/chemistry convolution. For me to look at a photograph is to look at an echo, an efigy, an imprint, a facinating document from the "blind instrument" as Andre Breton put it. It's a strange thing; suspended in time, like a frozen butterfly, sitting there inert, full of everything yet nothing.

    There's no law, or decree from god as to how to use a camera; it's in our hands.

    Hello Karl and a warm welcome to APUG. I do have a TLR, a Rolleiflex 2.8 which I got from my father when he passed away.

    The obsessions you mention are common among the Tasmanian demographic, which is what makes Tassiemaniacs so loveable, LOL!!!

    And this shall be your signature:

    "There's no law, or decree from god as to how to use a camera; it's in our hands."

    So true.
    “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.
