Title: Hi from Holland
Post by: WollyR on October 15, 2018, 05:02:36 PM
Good evening all (yes it's almost 11pm in the Netherlands),
my name is Wolly and I'm from Holland. To be more precise from a little fishermans village 20 km north of Amsterdam. I love playing around with my camera and photoshop. As a volunteer I teach older ppl how to use an iPad or a tablet. I have to admit, I'm a bit nerdy  8) and very patient.
Other than that I'm a mother of 3 grown up sons living their own lives in the same village. I enjoy life very very much. You can wake me for good music and/or glas of whisky. But right now the most important thing will be my first photo reconstruction...
#nervous #excited #patiently_waiting  :D

Good evening Wolly from my afternoon in the Pacific Northwest of the US. Being nerdy and patient should work extremely well as you work through restoring photographs :)

Ask questions in the forum if it helps - there are people here from many time zones, so there's almost always someone awake.

Welcome!

Hi Wally, a warm welcome from Kansas. The great thing about OPR is that we have volunteers from all over the world. Hannie, one of our board directors, is from the Netherlands. Jonas, over one of the galleries, is from Germany, and Tess, another gallery distributor is from Australia. Diversity makes the world a better place. Glad you have joined us.
