    I always find it hard to decide what to write in this little box since virtually everyone says more or less the same thing.
    Anyway
    I guess i should start off with where i live.
    I live in Holland or the Netherlands, whichever you prefer. Thats not where i'm from though. Birth wise i'd say i'm half belgian half danish. If you want to be picky there are a few more countries that would fit in there but i like to keep it simple. I was born in singapore and i have a belgian and American passport. Personally i dont feel like i'm from any one country in particular.

    I use a Nikon D80 camera and for now i use the 18-55 kit lens and a cheap 55-200mm lens. I plan to purchase a macro lens when i go on vacation to Singapore. Any recomendations would be nice, though from what i see the Nikon 105mm f2.8 Micro seems to be the best option for my price range.

    Oh right and i'm 18 years old and got my first DSLR last Christmas so i am pretty new to the whole photographing experience. Not a complete noob, but pretty close.

    Welcome.. 55-200mm is pretty good glass for the money.
