Default Hello from Den-Haag, the Netherlands

My name is Rob and I am an amateur photographer for many years. I did start making photographs with a Kodak box-camera, when I was ten years old. In the years following I have used Praktika cameras, Yashica Mat and a Nikkormat FT2.
Over the years I collected many camera's and did some restauration as well. My main interest is shooting analogue. I develop my own films, always black and white, and prefer to use developers with little impact on the environment.
Most of the time I use Caffenol. The cameras I work most with now are: Nikkormat FT2, Pentax MX, Rolleiflex 3,5 E3, Rollei 35 S. I like to experiment with home-made-cameras as well. At the moment I don't have a darkroom. I look forward to joining in with the forum.

You will find us a friendly crowd and helpful if you come across a problem.
I have visited Den Haag a few time in the past 2 years because my son and family live there and there are so many new subjects for us in UK. I also intend to visit the classic camera shop in Delft next month, (fotohandeldelfshaven). It has a lot of little gems which I could get interested in (and a little bit poorer as a result)
