Welcome to my Portfolio. You are welcome to come in and browse my work. Despite being a photographer for many years I see that I have a lot to learn.

Profile
  • Carl Zeiss Werra Mat 35mm Camera this was my first serious camera after a Brownie in about 1957



  • Excellent images.
  • The problem with Country is that it deserves its bad image due the C.R.A.P.M.U.S.I.C.(got a clue now) that has been published over the years. There are some incredible musicians and singers in the Country Scene such as Dwight Yoakam but because of the past most people don't give Country a chance.
  • Dogs, and only working Dogs like Sheep Dogs, Gun Dogs, Security, Disability Dogs. Cant stand those fashion pooches or miniature rat types.
  • Whilst on the subject of changing, can someone please tell me how to change my User Award logo.. Fanks..
  • I agree with Ross. If you arrive early enough it is well worth it just to get away to a very relaxed and comfortable area away from the jostling crowds. Also if you are the kind of person that has a few beers and something to eat at an airport it is worth it as food and beer is free. I do it just to get away from the crowds...........not the free beer.... Smile

  • Quote:A Union boss was in a group of VIPs shown round the first fully automated car engine plant.

    The company CEO asked the Union boss how he would go about organising the workers in the plant which, of course, was devoid of humans. The answer was that it would be done in much the same way that the company would sell cars to the workforce!

    We peasants need to be able to buy whatever big business creates.



    I think this actually is an original quote by Henry Ford. Following his statement he promptly doubled his employees wages so they could afford a car........... what happened next is history.
  • I also have been a long time considering fitting one and this Forum is certainly helping to make my mind up.
  • Chris, this is the last time I address you on this but I never insulted anyone, I just pointed out that this person who chooses to take on a female roll is really a Man. That is a fact. I personally have no issue as what life anyone's chooses to take on, but maybe the truth is getting a little to near home for you.
  • Thank You Chris for pointing that out BUT he carries an X and a Y Chromosome and medically this makes him a man. Now, if he wants to live a different lifestyle that's his choice but the fact still remains.

  • Quote: lives through her disclosure of confidential information


    HIS!

  • Quote:There you go Collywobbles, all you have to do now is figure out how to use that spyware.


    SmileSmileSmileSmileSmileSmileSmile
  • .............................. and here's another, watching Breakfast (TV Morning News Show) this morning it seems that animal lovers are complaining about the name used for the 'cats eyes' in the road and are to renamed Road Studs............ Bonkers....!

  • Quote:I don't think this is PC or mad. I think that as the girls shoes were labelled 'Dolly Babe' and the boys shoes were labelled 'Leader' I think it gives the boys ideas above ttheir probable abilities and encourages the girls to think of themselves as toys (for men!). Society needs ALL children to be encouraged into senior positions. An outcry that women at the BBC are not paid as much as men, and that women are much less likely to become CEO's than men. And yet at the adolescent stage girls do better acadmically than boys. Early channelling of children aspirations is not a good thing but deprives all of us from possible insights which would benefit human kind. having said that I will go back to the kitchen which is my natural home! Not!


    THis is exactly the attitude I refer too, frickin ridiculous.....
  • Just sitting here having breakfast and watching news I was gobsmacked to view an article where a Mother has complained about a shoe Company named Clarkes for naming two pair of children's school shoes 'Dolly Babe' for the girls and 'Leader' for the boys............ it seems that in her complaint she believes the names should be gender neutral..........! Am I or the rest of the UK going BARMY ...............
  • I have just bought another mobile phone. I have been using a Nokia Lumia 925 Windows phone for the last couple of years but have been disappointed at the limited range of apps available. I refuse to pay the premium prices for iPhones or Galaxy so I finished up buying an Honor 9 (Android) which is made by Hauwei. I was little cautious at first but as I get used to it I am finding it an outstanding purchase. One issue I find is the camera is not that good in low light situations but I can work around that, but for half the cost of a Galaxy or iPhone is a steal.

  • Quote:Well, that may well be the case which is why I keep banging on about a likely increase in violence and general conflict across the world if the super-rich try to maintain the present status quo without any concessions.
    I think we both agree on the likely miserable outcome but at least I think we should go down fighting the super-rich controlling elite. I don't see why we should make it easy for them.




    Garth I still wonder at your outlook on life of Neo-Cons and Conspiracy Theories.................
  • The problem is finding a balance to retain and/or monitor important information. After all we wouldn't like it if our car serving records were not recorded, or our medical records or our children's school reports.................
  • Winsford one of the most beautiful villages in the UK also just up the road Tarr Steps an ancient monument of steeping stones that cross the River Barle. I think last year part of it was washed away in very heavy rains.
  • Talk to KDC his work is absolutely outstanding...
  • It depends on what settings you have selected.

  • Quote:Hi guys, im 19 years old and wanting to be a photographer mostly in landscapes and wildlife. i dont have the money to upgrade my camera etc to have more fps, iso, etc. but how can i get money from my images say of a bird, how can i get sponsers or anything that would help build me up for the future.

    any advice would be much apretiated



    Firstly, you are not the only person to start out with limited equipment. You need to learn to walk before you can run and be patient. Learn as much as you can while you are quite young and over time it will come to you as it does for anyone prepared to put the effort in.

    There is an old joke about a Young Bull and an Old Bull walking along the road when they see a herd of Cows in a field a mile away. The Young Bull turns to the Old Bull and says "Lets run down the hill into that field and service that big White Cow", The Old Bull turned to the Young Bull and said "No! lets walk down the hill into that field and Service them all"


  • One of the problems of modern living is that we are conditioned to accept and believe that we are all stressed whereas in reality its just life's pressures which is not the same as stress. In fact pressure can be a good thing. A soon as someone voices they are stressed they are directed to Psychiatrists or self help groups, Councillors, or Doctors. Its becoming ridiculous. If there is a bad news report on TV a sign pops up and states " if you are affected by this phone this number". If something happens at a school they send in Councillors and Social Services etc etc.........

    I think we should separate lifes 'pressure' from lifes' stress' and maybe our sleep patterns would improve..... now I'm off to bed...... Smile night night
  • There are so many brilliant Amateur Photographers out there and especially here on EPZ, take a stroll through members portfolio's and if you think you can better them then you have a good start. However being a 'professional' takes so much more than just taking photographs. There is a lot to learn.
  • Does anyone remember the Wallace Heaton Catalogue.........?
  • Jeremy Corbyn says he will fix it............................................................ TongueTongueTongueTongue
  • I took many images of our LCD TV Screen when the UK 2012 Olympics were on and they all came out OK. However they were for personal use and interest so I guess I don't need to worry about the copyright issue.
  • Meet them at your bank and pay the money in there and ask bank to check the notes. If they are not prepared to do this, walk away.
  • Oh dear, I cannot post my results........ BlushBlushBlushBlushBlushBlushBlushBlushBlushBlushBlush
