    Miha, well said and I understand your meaning, but I am just making a point about a forum that is primarily in English. It is not a question of bias against East Europeans, but I think most APUG members would not understand a post in one of those languages.

    If we are going in that direction: do we know the country % make-up of countries still producing B&W film?

    BTW: "film" in Dutch is: "film" and "roll film" in Dutch is: "rolfilm".
    So - when in Holland - you don't have to speak Dutch ordering a decent roll film in a decent photography store (but finding the store itself .......)

    OK, can someone give a country breakdown of the 64,796 members of APUG?

    Let's forget all the language barriers and simply post photographs. Photography is an universal language!!

    Anyone has got a analogue self portrait to show?? You're welcome!!

    Portret
    Portrait

    You don't exactly have to be a genius to figure that one out.

    Let's move on with the pictures, shall we?!

    Some people look like their on line persona.

    Was wondering what the camera looked like with the shutter opened from the other side. Success to a point. Sorry... early morning adventure. Same as my avatar but this one is larger
