I tought it was probably time to update this section so here goes.
I live in North Kent with my wife Lesley. We have four children who are all pretty much grown up.
I started getting interested in photography back in the 1980's. I was given a Yashica FXD SLR for my 21st birthday. I don't miss using film but it did teach me how to use a camera and understand exposure. Other things took over and my photography went on the back burner from the late 80's until 2008 when I bought my first DSLR. I haven't looked back since. I love the control that digital gives me and the creativity you can use with software such as Photoshop. Today I take mainly landscape images. It gets me out when the light is at its best and gives me a real connection with nature and the elements.
I also love architecture and black and white.

    Too many to name but I Particularly like the natural images of Charlie Waite the unnatural for images of Marc Adamus and the downright strangeness of Greg Crewdsons work
    Dolgun by Alexander Dolgun
    Constantly changing but currently its All the little lights by Passenger
    I once heard a serious food critic say that the 2 Best tastes in the world are duck fat and Butter. Not very PC but absolutely correct.
    Love them generally but not sufficiently interested in individuals to have a favourite.
    see flower for my point of view.
