Hi Mike and Welcome!
Hi Mike and Welcome!
I've only discovered the Irish APUG corner today. Nice! I'm a four-year old import to Ireland and I live in Glencormack, Co Wicklow - about 5 minutes from Bray and 1 minute from Little Sugar Loaf.
I've been shooting and printing B&W on-and-off for some 25 years but I only I switched to 4x5 about 5-6 years ago. I take a lot of digital too, but I really want to go back to my silver roots. Right now I am rebuilding my darkroom in my utility room.
Please keep me on your mailing lists in case of any events etc.
Happy New Year 2008 to you all.
Hi Rafal and welcome to APUG, as you can see by the other threads we do meetup and shoot some stuff from time to time. We're plotting an exhibition and run workshops and stuff. Hope you can post often and happy new year to you too.
Welcome! As another "import" can I ask where you're from?
Happy New Year!
Happy New Year and welcome from just down the road..
That's a very nice doorstep you have.. you live in a beautiful part of the county.
Hope to see you on one of our 2008 outings!
Speaking of which.. where to next guys?
Welcome to APUG, with you on board I think that Wicklow has the highest number of APUGers in the country! I'm just up the road on Bray.
Thanks for the many welcomes! Glad to know that if I run out of developer I can look for some a few doors down the road. :)
I didn't want to bore you with all the details of my travels, but since Catherine asked... I'm part of the Polish invasion in a way. I left Krakow 18 years ago for London and I slowly made my way to Ireland over the past few years.
The move from UK damaged my Gem 405 enlarger which was good news as I had insured it well. This allowed me to replace it with a nice DeVere 405 with an Ilford 500 head which is the centrepiece of the darkroom I am rebuilding at present. I miss not having Silverprint just a few stops away on the Underground - those guys had everything a B&W fan needed. But now I know where I can find you. :)
I look forward to meeting you in person in the future.
I use the same Devere Rafal, it really good.
I know what you mean about Silverprint, I've only been in it twice but order online. Awesome place.
I get most of my stuff there or in Gunns in Wexford Street, Dublin. They are great people in there, call in and say hello if you haven't already.
Hello and Welcome Rafal from the other Cork Apugger. Hope to meet up soon.
Nice that there's an Irish corner here.
I'm in Cork, on the island.
Looking forward to sharing the fun.
