    Hello from Birmingham in the UK :D

    Im new having just found APUG it seems pretty good source of info its also good to see that people are still using analogue cameras. I use an old folding Agfa 6x6 cameras, toy cameras and an beaten up old Olympus om1n and digital slr.

    I've been taking photos for about 5 years and i seem to learn something new every day which is great. I love my street photography, black and white darkroom printing, and seeking out and finding new and interesting photography.


    Thanks Patrick

    Welcome Patrick from Middle England. Junk the digibox and concentrate on proper photography, but most of all whatever you use, enjoy the experience.
    Regards Dave.

    Welcome Patrick. After 41 years I'm down to learning something new every week rather than every day -- but some weeks it's quite a lot...

    Cheers,

    Roger (do you read AP?)

    Welcome Patrick from another "Brummie" - well regionally speaking almost and at the very least were both middle Englanders with I think a camera in common as well if yours is the Agfa Isolette 1.

    Cheers

    Welcome to Prisneyland-still time to sign up for the postcard exchange which I've really enjoyed taking part in.
