    Hello from Minnesota

    Hello,

    I have been lurking in the forum for a few months, learning a lot about photography and the APUG community. Prior to finding APUG I had not really realized how large and friendly the photographic community was. I am very fortunate to have found APUG. There is such a wealth of knowledge available here, not to mention the wonderful photographs available in APUG galleries.

    My interest in photography started when I was seven years old, living in Poland at the time. I always enjoyed taking pictures but did very little of my own processing and printing. A few years ago I became disabled and turned to photography for help. Since then, I have become more seriously involved in the photographic process and have tried to learn more about photography as part of our cultural heritage.

    I like photographing people. I typically use black and white film, though have also used some color in the past. I process my own negatives, but darkroom printing is currently beyond my physical limitations. I hope, however, to be able to do it some day.

    It's nice to meet you all. I look forward to hanging around here a lot.

    Welcome aboard from the north coast of BC, Canada

    Looking forward to seeing more photographs of strangers you meet...something I wouldn't feel comfortable doing!

    I'm looking down on you from way up north so that means the Pacific coast, right?

    Welcome from another Minnesotan. I also live in St Paul and it's great to see more film shooters from here on APUG. Perhaps we can get together some time and talk photography.
