    Hello from Newmarket, Ontario

    Hello to you all,
    I just joined this group after I lurked around for quite a while.
    What happens is that I came back to my old love for photography after a 10 year break imposed by circumstances of me moving from Romania to Canada.
    Back there and then (80s and early 90s) black and white was the affordable medium so I started slowly stealing knowledge by watching and helping professionals. No internet, no Ansel Adams books, just down to earth plain test and go. It was fun; luckily materials were not that expensive as I was wasting a lot of film and paper. I did weddings, family portraits, nature in 35mm and 6x6 (remember Seagull?). Once arrived and settled in Canada things started to come together: my life, my job, new friends and my old hobby. I discovered APUG, PN and many photog sites that offered access to a tremendous amount of information. I'm very grateful. I managed to ship to Canada most of my BW darkroom equipment so Im getting comfortable with BW once again. I mix the developers myself and develop my films (bulk 35mm and 120 rolls). When comes to the artsy aspect of my work Im not there yet, I still rely on you to learn and fine tune my skills. I love what I see here, who knows one day when I grow up.
    Cheers

    Welcome from a former Ontario resident -- wish I had known more about the APUG community when I was living in Toronto! This is an amazing site to fine tune your skills on.

    happy commuting

    I read on another post that you work in Mississauga. Ain't life in the GTA grand, traffic congestion wise? If you are like me stuck in traffic, then the whole nights goals are planned by the time I get in the door.

    Fortunately, for the last 5 years I have lived 6km round trip, no traffic lights between home and the office.

    I hope the move to the new country is on the whle worthwhile after you count out the time that is lost sitting in the car.

    Glad you still have a fun time with film. For me the challenge is to find the time to do it.

    Mike, with the comute you hit the nail in the head but there are still few good reasons why I prefer to live here rather than my native country. There is no perfect place anyway; I'm very glad to be here, do what I like and meet you people

    My wife's mother's family was New Market Based. Only her aunt lives near there now, in Sharon. Beautiful area. Too humid though.
