    I've been taking photos, mainly landscapes but some industrial archaeology, for sixty years! I started reading AP in 1961. I live in Mid Wales and spend a lot of time hill walking with my Border Collie and wife, taking photos. I do not use any digital cameras; I take slides almost exclusively and project them with a Leica projector or a Rollei 66 Dual P. I own a Nikon FM, a Nikon F3, a Bronica SQAi (I take medium format slides) but mostly I use my Leica iiif or iiig with an assortment of lenses. Before I retired I was head of a primary school in Powys but, before becoming a teacher, I was an engineer and steam loco driver on the paid staff of a Welsh preserved railway. And that's me!
