Hi, My name is Mike, and I live in Coventry in the centre of the UK. I'm in my mid 40s, and have been a keen photographer since I was 12. My other main hobby is amateur radio, as you might be able to tell from my user name. I've been licensed since I was 16, and am currently active on the HF bands, mostly on data modes. Current camera gear is Olympus E-620, Panasonic LX5, LX3, TZ10 (and just ordered a G2), Olympus OM1, MjuII, Trip for film. Have had and parted with various Nikon and Canon cameras, a Voitlander Bessa R, and a Leica M4-P over the last few years, some of which I am still kicking myself for letting go! I don't get enough opportunity to go to places that I consider interesting enough to photograph, but do try to finds things around me to do my best with. My biggest downfall is my composition, I simply don't have an eye for a good photo, but I will keep on trying to improve! Cheers for now, and I hope to make some new friends on here. Mike.
