What is your personal photographic journey? In a photographic sense, how did you start, and with what equipment? How have you progressed, and where are you, and your photographic skillset, placed today?

This is a place where members may share their personal photographic journey. Some of our normal posting rules are suspended within this section. To illustrate you story, for instance, you may post more than the normal 4 or so images. In fact, we actively encourage you to share with us images that illustrate how your photography has changed since you started. So readers with slower connections please be warned that postings made within this section may be - will be - larger than the norm.

Well I've arrived in Paris, love it, but not the massive crowds and queues! Anyway, here's some more :)

Great treatments here Geoff. Hard to get different views/perspectives when the subject is so popular but I really like what you've done with these.
