Hello there from Poland
It's the first time I post here though I've been a rare lurker for about half an year.
My name is Lukasz Grabun, I am 29, living in Poland, Europe. For those who live in States: Europe is the small peninsula attached to Russia and Poland is a medium-sized country at the very eastern end of it ;-)
Two or so years ago, I joined the crowd, and bought myself a digital SLR, which was Olympus E-1 in this case. But somehow - I can't recall exactly how it went - my interest was pulled towards film cameras, OMs in particular. Now I have two of them, OM-2n and OM-1n; I had OM-G and OM-4 but sold them. Meanwhile I tried such cameras as Yashica 124 Mat and Mamiya C330. My two recent purchases are Bessa R and Hasselblad 501CM. My favourite film is HP5+, my favourite developer is R09 and my favourite focal length is 50mm ;-)
So, this is it. Hello everyone.
And last but not least: I'd like to thank very much to the founders of APUG; the only way I could express my appreciation was by purchasing an account on this awesome site - which I obviously did; in times when internet is flooded with cr*p this place remains one of last places where quality is valued more that quantity. Thanks for this.
Phew, it's been long. Has anyone read so far? :-)
Oh, and my flickr gallery, if anyone is interested, is here:
Welcome, Lukasz. It is a great site. I am glad you joined. Take care and best regards. Dan
I think you forgot to mention that Poland is the only migratory country in the world (look at historical maps, and you'll see what I mean) :p ...
Hi guys, thanks for the warm welcome.
@Ole, yeah, well, you can say this, actually :-)
Hi Lukasz, welcome from the east of England.
great intro, great photographs and some great kit you have, enjoy APUG :p
Welcome from New England...a few miles west of Cambridge, UK.
Guys, too bad I won't be able to attend to one of APUG meetings to meet you in person for you all sound like people who are definitely worth meeting in person. Thanks again for a warm welcome!
