    Hello from Toronto, Canada

    Hi all,

    Though I have been posting sporadically in the MF equipment forum, and have gotten some very helpful advice there, I have yet to formerly introduce myself...so I would just like to say a big hello to everyone here, and also to add that I have been admiring everyone's works in the gallery. I have been to many internet photo galleries, and I have to say that the one here definitely ranks as one filled with some of the most breathtakingly beautiful photos I've seen (at least IMHO!).

    I am a beginner, but am doing all I can to learn as much as I can.

    Glad to be here.

    Macy

    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    Greetings Macey.
    This is a great place to visit.
    Rogueish - myself being of French Canadian descent (my grandfather was from Canada and my father was born just below the border in way upstate New York) I was under the impression that Canucks were French Canadians, and that it was not a term of endearment given to them by the British Canadians. Lately, I have been seeing the term used to label all Canadians. Did I miss something?

    thanks for the welcome!

    Hmm...as far as I know, Canucks refer to all Canadians, though I actually am an immigrant who came to Canada 15 years ago, so I may be wrong.

    I think one of the reasons the photos here at APUG are so outstanding is because it is all analog - the photographers/artists take much more time, effort and pride in making the photos, from capturing the moment, to developing, and then to printing. I think the quality and thought that goes into these photos really show.

    I have only recently begun to develop my own B&W photos, so am quite far away from being confident enough to post here amongst everyone else! However, I am working on improving my craft. I really want to do my own printing, but at the moment, I cannot as I do not have a darkroom set up. That is my next big project - to put together a usable darkroom.

    I'm sure I'll have tons of questions!

    You may be correct as to the origins of "Canuck". I really don't know. Personally I like the term, sorta like a nick name, I guess. A group I met in West Virginia kept calling me that all night, so I (tried) imitated their accent and kept calling them "Rednecks and Hillbillies". We all had a good laugh.
    I hope (if the origins are correct) that one takes offence over the name being French or Anglo Canadian. It may be the "not what you say, but how you say it". Most people I know take as a point of pride, stemming from the "Crazy Canucks" ski team from an earlier decade.

    Actually, I am proud to be of Canuck heritage and my father definately fits into the Crazy Canuck catagory. At age 68 the d**m fool fell out of a tree he was trying to cut down!
    He is now 88 years old and we hope that he'll be around for a few more years.

    Canuck is a name used to describe all Canadians. The French Canadians have their pet names for the Anglos and vis-a-versa.

    The Webster definition must have been written by a non-Canadian.
