well thought I sould digits to keys and say Hi.

so better add a bit about my self:

my name is Richard and I live on a bit of rock that jutts out into the Duddon Estury on the edge of the Lake District.

I turned 40 at the beginning of the year and was given a E510 by my children, my first DLSR and first SLR since a OM10 20 odd years ago.

we keep Bees, Castlemilk Moorit sheep and this year also had 3 Tamworth pigs.

I am also involved in historic motor sport racing a 1948 Cooper formula 3 race car and a 1931 MG.

Welcome Richard. I am new to this group as well and so far I am most impressed. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. My photographic background sounds similar, in that I hadn't handled a SLR for over 20 years until this August. My other handicap is an extra 25 years on you. Photography hasn't half got complicated for an old un.

Regards,:)
