I bring my motorbike to a halt by a crooked road sign where the rest of the group are waiting.

So in return, I decided that I would like to contribute and get involved as I have much to learn.

I am halfway through my first roll of film as I write this, so this is something of an ode to my first two years in photography and explains why I felt the need to switch to film. This post contains digital photography. But if that doesn’t put you off then please read on!
