Hello everyone, I'm very excited about becoming part of this group of LF enthusiasts.

I am recently retired and have had an interest in B&W photography for 40 years and LF for about 20. However, with career and family I was never able to achieve any kind of continuity with my interest...I looked at a lot of photographs but did not take many. I found this site (and APUG) only a couple of weeks ago and it has renewed my enthusiasm so I bought some film & chemicals and want to get started for the Nth time. I hope to get to the point where I can contribute as a result of my experiences.

If anyone lives in the St. Louis area you now have a new LF neighbor...
