this one is my favourite, reminds me of a fabulous trip to the venice carnival, its been exhibited in salons, won a competition on epz, won club and interclub competions and was in my lrps panel.

more importantly, i had been in a photographic wilderness having dropped out of the club circuit for a while, had seen colour popping (corny i know but new at the time) but didnt know how to do it. the world had gone digital and i was struggling with a new bridge camea and no photoshop. i met an old club friend who persuaded me to go back to my former club and it was to start a new fire inside of me.

taken during the carnival, it was a fleeting moment that happened in front of me and the refraction in the glass was fabulous and caught my eye, the picture was grabbed by instinct and was uncropped as on slide i neither had that possiblility and had less than 1/3 stop exposure to, play with. this was taken on slide in a nikon f2 or a pentax mx, i dont recall, but i remember making hard work of this after scanning to achieve this result. it won first time out on my return to the club. it would be so easy to do now in retospect

This is one of my favourites, it's my son and his friend on a treasure hunt.

This was taken 5 and a half years ago with a little compact, I loved the natural sun light and, as it's my daughter it has happy memories too, and I guess this was the beginning of becoming more interested in photography and wanting to have more control over the light etc.

At the moment it is this one, not because it is amazing photography or anything, but because after the the awful year I have had I seriously thought I would never find anyone again and I would end up on my own for the rest of my life. This photo represents a very significant moment in my life, one I could never imagine.

This is mine, has been for quite some time now.


As a kid I was fascinated by Terence Cuneo paintings of steam and I believe this captures some of the atmosphere (but not the mouse) of those images.

Hello all. I'm a newby here and this is my current favourite. Taken at Sweethearts Abbey near Dumfries on a Sony point and shoot and part of a set I took on our grand tour (mad dash Grin) around the north of England and Scotland last month.

My favourite changes quite often. But at the moment, I would say this one, entitled 'I want to be tall tall tall':

Quote:Terence Cuneo

There is a name from my past.

My Father was a spotter in WWII with him and he used to make sketches of the enemy target positions. As a child I had a model aircraft made from wood and painted by Cuneo. Wish I still had it.
