Profile

About

I am 62 years old, British, now living in Crete, Greece. Photography is purely a hobby for me, and I get a lot of pleasure from it. I love animals and birds, I have one African Grey, a yellow labrador and a black labrador X alsatian. I am 100% an amateur photographer, using a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ7 point and shoot camera. I am in no way technically minded, just like to take photos with the press of a button. The Panasonic is an ideal beginner's camera, everything is automatic if you want it to be, no fiddling with lens etc.
My main subjects of interest are bugs and beasties and wild flowers, and one day I hope to compile a book of images of all the wonderful critters I have found and photographed here in Crete.

My dear Carol,
There are many macro photographers in this world (A few in this site),
but what makes it more amazing is to stand out among them all... YOU DO!
99% of your work is excellent and commendable! Keep it up! GrinGrin

Hi,
lovely portfolio. It doesn't matter which camera you use or technical know-how ( I'm hopeless at the technical stuff ) What matters is the eye and as I can see, you have a good eye. Well done, some nice work there. Good luck with your book.
By the way. Coincidence , I used to live in Lancing ( just up the road form where you are from) and I live in Greece. I live right up in the far north, you are about as south as it's possible to be in Greece. Have a good winter.
Hi Carol, thank you for your kind comment and award for Blue in the meadow.

Best regards George.

Hi Carol, your portfolio is stunning and inspiring! I am a novice and also have a Panasonic point and shoot (TZ-40) and to know these cameras (in the right hands Grin) are capable of producing photos like these is brilliant! Wonder where I can get a pair of those "right hands"? Grin
Kind regards Anne

Hello Carol, you certainly have a great portfolio. It's awesome. Mindblowing. I simply love it. Wish i could snap the way you do. Your macro shots are too good.
