    I've been a member for quite a while, dipping into the site nearly every day, and thought it was about time I stopped hiding in the bushes and introduce myself.

    My name is Gareth, and I'm a british ex-pat, living in the Netherlands. I've always been intrigued by photography, and always had a simple point and click camera. A couple of years ago, I bought my first NEX, the 5. I've just sold that after saving hard and recently acquiring the 6.

    Hello Gareth

    Welcome to the club ! I lived part time in the very most Northern part of Belgium (Turnhout, right below Breda) for about 2 years, so I'm a little familiar with your current little corner of the world. Bring them pictures on !

    Geez, they're coming out of the woodwork! LOL

    Welcome Gareth, pay no attention to the first line, we've had quite a few new arrivals lately all at once when before they trickled in 1 or 2 at a time.

    Anyway, we're glad you're here and like Claire said- show us the pictures! ;)

    Compared to you, I've just moved around the corner.
