I hope you gain a little pleasure from my photo's.
I gain a great deal from my hobby, the greatest part being the company of my friends who brighten my day whatever the weather. I hope you have as good fortune.
I purchased my first camera thirty years ago and had a very frustrating couple of years. OM1, the camera was fine the guy behind it was useless.
Got truly hooked on photography ten years later when I saw my first wet print appear. I found the printing process more enjoyable than taking the shot, test strips burning and dodging (sigh) nostalgia.
