    Hello everyone.

    I can't believe I've only recently discovered this site- it's fantastic.

    I've been into photography on and off since my late teens - I'm now in my thirties, but during the last 5 or 6 years with the onset of digital have preferred DSLRs (and perhaps explains my lack of knowledge of this site)

    Technology has evolved rapidly, and my camera bag has been getting progressively heavier, so that now I'm switching to compacts for everyday shooting

    My preference is street shooting and preferably in black and white.

    Last week I bought the Ricoh GR and I'm absolutely blown away by it. One of the most pleasurable cameras I think I've ever used. I can't believe a body that size has an APSC sensor inside. I wish I'd discovered the GR family of cameras sooner- I want to get a IV now just to see how good the f1.9 lens is.

    Ill post some pics in due course but I'm delighted to be here

    I'm on Flickr and I hope this link to one of the images I took yday works!
