Hello from Canada
Hello, my name is John Cox and I've been browsing threads here the past few days and was impressed by the content and quality; I hope I have something decent to contribute and I'm sure I'll learn a lot.
I've been working as a photographer for the past seventeen years from when I started covering after school activities for a local newspaper. I started out with a Polaroid land camera and currently shoot Digital, Bonica MF, and leica M/L39. My most loved film is TXP 320 (120/220) and still have some as I buy it whenever I see it. If you know of any that the owner will part with let me know. I also have a large collection of toy/box cameras from 1886-1970.
I really like working with film because of the sheer deliberation involved. Taking a picture with film forces you to slow down and pay attention to composition exposure and focus. I feel this is lacking in a lot of photography today.
I live in Orangeville Ontario but will be moving to Toronto in the near future.
Hello John - welcome to APUG from the southwestern corner of the country!

I really like your attitude!
Now, where is Ontario...is it anywhere near Ottawa?
Hello John and welcome to APUG.
Hi John, from another fellow Canuck located in the middle of the Prairies. I too love TXP and has some 120/220 in my freezer that I am not willing to sell as it is one of my favorite films ever. Glad you like the site, some of us spend a lot of time here.
Welcome John, I hope you enjoy APUG.
