    Hello.

    I recently turned 18,

    I can't belive I have never thought of joining a photo forum before.

    I take my camera everywhere, but i'm no proffesional...but I am thinking of taking a photography course at college next year.


    I have a pretty rubbish digital camera at the moment, but when I get some money I will be upgrading for sure.


    My main intrests include skycrapers and architecture, Soccer, coins and men ;)


    I've gone to cities before just to look at skyscrapers....and I'll be in Manchester (UK) in a few weeks mainly to take pics of their new 171m monster.

    **Edit** Question answered.
    Grantham?!?!? No skyscrapers there. And I'm not sure what state the College's Photo courses are in just now - but I might be able to find out if you want.

    Nope, no skyscrapers in Grantham.

    Plenty of architecture though ;)


    I was so close to going to London instead, where there are a load of skyscrapers, but I couldn't find anyone to stay with....and with a 'cheap' hotel costing $100 a night, I gave it a miss.
    And a friend in Manchester said I could stay as long as I want.

    What do you mean 'I'm not sure what state the College's Photo courses are in just now'?

    Grantham College - they used to run a photo course. I have a friend who teaches there so I can get all the dirt. I was asked to teach there but... :lol:
