Hello There

Hello fellow m4/3 users, my camera is a Panasonic, but have some Olympus lenses.
My main interests are Travel and Transport and more specifically photographing Trams especially older ones in European cities.
Based in the UK, born, lived and worked in London for forty years, now resident in the flatlands of Cambridgeshire.

Cheers
Rich

Re: Hello There

Welcome aboard Rich, look forward to seeing some of your photos.

Should you feel lonely out there in the Fens, don't worry as we have several other flatlanders on here

John

Welcome Tram. If you are ever in Derbyshire then it would be worth a trip to the tramway museum at Crich, if you haven't been already that is

Thanks, yes I have been there and a smaller one in Birkenhead too.
Very nice museum in Brussels, vintage trams get to run on the public network there.

Re: Hello There

Hi there. Welcome to this place.

Could I request you do a photo tour of your home area? Am planning a trip to the UK (Coventry) sometime next year and have not decided where else to visit.
