I have been as most people, and have had a camera most of my life, taking the odd 'snap' and holiday pics, but I am now retired,and, sadly, became a widower in October 2005, I took to the camera like some people take to Drink!! I now have an archive of 7-8000 images! My D70 has been my constant companion. My photographic interests are general, but try to find a different angle if I can. I like to share my images and value opinion, positive or negative, on my work. I am on a steep learning curve. Reckon I am probably one of the oldest 'beginners' in the business!!
