    HI all,
    been lurking for a while now so I thought it was about time I joined up. I used to shoot film like a tourist, then got into digital and have been doing that since it got popular. I've always thought film looks better for many things so I challenged myself to start doing it properly, including developing and shooting everything from 35mm up to 4x5, which I'm now doing, and really enjoying the whole camera, film developing thing. I've learned a lot and messed up plenty, but I've taught myself everything, it's a lonely world shooting film where I am, most people think I'm slightly insane, but I don't care, so here I am.

    Me be "Berks"! Welcome Tony. Hope I'm not confusing this with some other region in the UK.
    Met a bargee from this region on the Thames' upper reaches, pic taken while visiting my brother who was repairing some leak problems for a fellow South African that owned a barge there: https://www.leicaimages.com/photo/37004
