    Greetings

    Hello, everybody.

    My name's Alex. I've been living in San Francisco for the past few years. I am one of the people who used to shoot (develop and print) film a long long time ago (in a galaxy far far away, if you can call the Soviet Union that) with my dad. The digital revolution got me back into photography right around 2001, and lately, I've been shifting more and more back to my roots. I shoot both 35 mm (Olympus OM2 and a Canon A2E) and Medium format (Bronica ETRS and a Fuji 645Zi). For the most part, I use HP5+ and develop in Rodinal. I love the gritty look I get with that combination.

    You can see some of my work @ www.memoryofadream.com, a photoblog I just started and plan to update once every few days. At the time of this post, the picture on the front page is taken w/ my digital canon. The other two are both film.

    That's about it. Don't be strangers :-)

    Alex

    Welcome aboard. Don't you just hate that when you leave stuff behind. :o
    Btw, what did you use for the web site programming. I know you are using Wordpress; What about the picture changes?

    It's wordpress with the yapb (yet another photoblog) plugin and the "grain" theme. More or less out of the box visually. I also added some search engine optimization stuff and google analytics on the back end.

    Welcome to the APUG jungle!Love that HP5+.....such a versatile and richly toned film.
    "He took to writing poetry and visiting the elves: and though many shook their heads and touched their foreheads and said 'Poor old Baggins!' and though few believed any of his tales, he remained very happy till the end of his days, and those were extraordinarily long "- JRR Tolkien, ' The Hobbit '.
