sideshowbob - forgets to say hello and just starts posting

Hello all

It occurred to me that I haven't done the "hello, here's me" thing and you might want to know who / what I am.

I'm sideshowbob, a 30 something research bod who lives in north Cumbria and posts under the same alias and minor variations (SSB) on other DVD / AV forums (you know the ones). Found this place through Marcel (left a trail of breadcrumbs) and I recognise a few names (abbreviated though they may be in some cases) from elsewhere.

Only been shooting with a DSLR for about a year, had a few months off after selling my 300d in a hissy fit, buying a D70, selling that, then buying another just days later*. So, all in all I'm maybe a little erratic in my camera ownership.

I've not really settled on a preferred style or subject area, but I do like taking landscapes (although I need to get better at them) and wildlife, including our two English Springers (although they need to learn to sit still at the appropriate moments).

Technically I have moments of (self perceived) greatness, but largely I'm still very much an improver. I do like the post processing side, again though I'm at the bottom end of the ladder with regard to skill.

So, that's it. Nice to meet you.

* there's an Alfa Romeo with a blown engine, a pair of James Blunt tickets and some minor domestic financial mismanagement in the whole story, but I'll spare you the details.

Nice intro Bob, you sound like just the person who will enjoy our forums as you have no doubt discovered by now. There is plenty of info and advice scattered around and everyone is willing to help wherever they can.

You and I have something in common though, we both have a passion for landscape and scenic photography, and may I add both still learning

Nice to have you here.

Thanks for the welcoming comments - I'm looking forward to getting to know folks. I've already picked up a few tips while skulking in the shadows, so hopefully I'll have something to bring to the forum in return.

Well, he didn't actually invite me here ... it's more that he didn't cover his tracks well enough. :lol:

Mods: Well, Bob, welcome on board. Sorry dod, any reason why you are still here?
dod: Euh .. I've got nowhere to go, my lord.
Mods: O surely you will be allowed to starve to death in one of the royal parks.
dod: I've been in your service since I was two and a half, my lord.
Mods: Well that is the why I am so utterly sick of the sight of you.
dod: Couldn't I just stay here and do the same job but for no wages?
Mods: Well, you know where you will have to live.
dod: In the gutter.
dod: Yes.
Mods: And you'll have to work a bit harder too.
dod: Of course, my lord.
Mods: All right. Go and get Bob's stuff in and chuck your filthy muck out into the street.
dod: God bless you, sweet master.
sorry, couldn't help it :coat:

I should note that contrary to dod's filthy insinuations I am a man (or at least the nearest equivalent) rather than a woman in lad's clothing.
