Suppose I should post here really...

Greetings, salutations, and hello!

My name's Mem, I'm 22 years old and I live in Essex, UK. Please note: I am NOT a typical Essex girl by any stretch of the imagination.

I'm not a photographer, I've never even owned a camera myself, up until a few days ago when I suddenly found myself in possession of my Grandad's old Spotmatic. Somehow this feels like the beginning of a long journey, and I can't wait to get started!

Shall be hanging around and pestering you with my newbie-ish questions. You all seem so nice here!!

Now now..

For us North Americans... you can't say you're not a typical Essex girl until you explain exactly what a typical Essex girl *is*.

There are many owners of "prehistoric" Pentax SLR cameras here, even I am considerring getting a MX... oh well, what I tried to say is that you're in the right place to get help with your Spotmatic.

Hi Memma and welcome!

after reading your bio I realize what you mean by "not typical"....
that's cool with me!
diversity makes the world go around.

looking forward to your pics from the spot-o-matic...

But there is a worthy smattering of grumpy old b.....rds who help to maintain a semblance of balance on the board.
IMHO not enough of them, but the dedicated few do seem to have a lot to say that's worth reading.
Anyway, welcome from another "oddity" .
