    Hi i'm new! :mrgreen:

    My names Tom and i'm a nearly 30 year old Scotsman who's always had a wee thing with pictures from my days with a Pentax Manual SLR at School to playing with Digital photos now.

    I'm currently using an Olympus 3MP compact which will let me get into using some of the features of SLRs then hopefully upgrade to a D-SLR later this year.

    My photography interests are mainly Sport related, with Football (Soccer for those who wish to call it that) and Motocross being my main targets.

    I'm looking forward to seeing what others can do and, hopefully, improving my pictures.

    I have to ask: If you Scots are so intelligent, explain haggis. :lol:


    As for the bear suit - it's back from the dry cleaners and ready for action (You should have seen the state of it. I can't imagine what MD... on second thoughts, I think I can and I wish I couldn't)

    Haggis is the scots being stereotypically mean (and resourceful) and using the things they have around them.

    It's made with pigs' entrails, oatmeal, spices and cooked in a sheep's bladder, what more tasty combination could you think of?
