    Hello from Paris, France

    Hello there,

    I'm from Paris and i have been reading and enjoyed this forum for quite a long time, now I think it's time to share pictures and words with you!

    I started with a Sigma DP Merrill, then i went on the film side (and never get back) i used to have a Kiev 60, a Rolleiflex 3.5 and some others but now i'm happy with a Graflex Crown Graphic since few months.

    Hope to spend a nice time with you.

    A bientôt,

    Welcome to the forum! Whenever I think of Paris, I think of my Great Aunt, the legendary Black performer Josephine Baker, who spent the majority of her great career in France. The Crown Graphic is a great starter camera in LF and will serve you well. There is a wealth of knowledge on this forum, so don't hesitate to ask any question that you might have.

    Sorry to say that I never met her, as she passed away before I was aware of the family connection. As you know, she was loved and admired by the people of France.

    She married my Great-Uncle, Jo Bouillon. As you can guess, I am extremely proud. Nice work with your Crown Graphic!
