    Hello everybody

    Greetings from an old-timer, old-school photographer.
    The kind who used an 8x10" for bread and butter, but pocketed an Olympus Pen FT (pancake 38 lens of course) for fun, until he could afford a Leica M6...
    Same routine today, if slightly altered : a 20-odd Mpixels heavy SLR thingie with tilt and shift for paid work, and a Pen for fun, and panoramas too.

    Ahhh. Bretagne; my favourite region in France! I will be there this September close to Dinan with some Aussie family. My wife and I found a lovely Gite run by a British lady and we have visited a number of times. We love Dinan, Dinard, St Malo...a walk along the Rance with the locks, Cap Frehel etc +of course du vin et du pain. Welcome

    Thanks for the warm welcome, folks.

    To Ulfric @ "Well, hopefully he's a Breton ! ? "
    - Nay, shamefully not native Breton, though my spaniel is, and aptly named Biniou--you know, Bombarde would sound too loud if you've ever heard one.

    PS: It would be nice if you posted a print, pref. bordered, of you playing the border pipe while walking your border collie ? :wink:

    Just in case ... that isn't me! Or my dog. Or his dog either. And I forgot to put a border around it. :|
