I was born in Birkenhead in 1951;by the age of five this lucky town boy was bought a set of encyclopaedias by farsighted parents. It was the first time I was able to see ROBINS, OWLS & ROOKS all courtesy of Eric Hoskings Photographs. I still have the encyclopaedias.
I enjoy gaining knowledge, and through taking pictures and analysing the results I have gained an appreciation of the natural world. We have a great deal to learn from all around us, Its up to us not to spoil it.
I took the self portrait while on my way from the station at Chat Hill to Seahouses. I had stopped to rest during the 5 mile walk to the campsite. It was a lone expedition to the Farne Islands by public transport & it felt like I had the weight of the world.......That was 18 years ago. The world seems to have become heavier, but thankfully my understanding has increased.
