    Hello everyone,
    I've at last taken the plunge to join a forum or two (this one looked like one of the best) to share thoughts, images, critique and am looking forward to the experience.

    As the title suggests, I was born and bred in London, England but have lived close to the Swiss-French border (Geneva-Annecy) for most of my life. Interested in photography for about 40 years but still learning of course.

  2. Welcome to Photonet, Richard!

    Looking forward to seeing your posts and photos I'm a Welshman in The Netherlands and I've lived here for 40+ years. Almost all of the photos (snaps) I take these days are as a volunteer for a couple of local organisations. I don't post them here. But your post reminded me that I could post more links now and again. For critique.

    Best wishes,

    Mike

  3. Welcome to P.net.

    I don't live too far from where I was born, but for all that, I am pretty much an alienated "rootless cosmopolitan" :rolleyes:

    There's still room here for differences, and as a description for a tropical island I once thought about visiting said:

    Thanks for your words of welcome Mike. I agree that too often we amateur photographers hesitate to show our photos to the world. If my post encourages you to do that, then I certainly look forward to seeing them.

    Thanks for your welcome JDMvW. Look forward to exchanging views with an 'alienated rootless cosmopolitan' ;)
     
  6. Richard, I join with the others in welcoming you to PN. FYI, I've been a resident of the US my entire life.
