Hello, My name is James and I've been a model railroader for years now, but photography has been a great second hobby. I don't own any expensive equipment nor am I a professional by any means, but I do love photography and for months I ave been drooling over this forum's photographs and I have enjoyed many great shots quite thoroughly taken by various members of the forum. I therefore decided to quit lurking and come into the light to join you all. Can't wait to get started!
