Time for an update: I still use film, though. Not vast quantities, but I have a darkroom, and I'm not afraid to use it.

I enjoy every image I take: I hope you'll enjoy looking at them.

I'm retired from a dayjob that I enjoyed, and it leaves me with more time to take pictures, process pictures, talk about pictures and cameras, and generally be a bit obsessive.

Although I'm 68 (must remember to update that bit within three years...), I actually believe myself to be around 17, but with excess experience.

I may grow up properly one day, but until that happens, I'm aiming to enjoy life, love and photogrpahy.

Hi John,
Thanks for your article on bridges. Apart from trains, a particular favourite to photograph. I was at Newcastle University in the mid 70s and the Tyne crossings started my admiration of bridges. Your article brought back good memories, and useful tips of course. As an oars man, I remember racing through the Elvet Bridge at Durham Regatta. If the other crew were ahead, one hoped the opposition's Cox misjudged the gap!

Mil gracias por tu opinión a mi foto, muy constructiva.
Me di cuenta de la cantidad de elementos en la toma pero por algún motivo me agrado saturar con tantos elementos, pero tu opinión es muy correcta.
Aproveche para visitar tu galería, es fantástica la seguiré con detenimiento.

Thanks for sharing this wonderful portrait with us John. You say she is Russian and a dancer. It seems to me that Russians are very much how Churchill described, "An enigma wrapped in a riddle" I became to realise this from having so many Russian friends. They are highly cultured and well educated and pure fun to be arround. I like this portrait a lot.

I can nearly always tell on the main gallery when it is one of your photos and although I am not at all into people photography I can value the art and technical quality in your photos. A great portfolio!

Hi! Thanks for your critique re my Rufford Robin, I really appreciate the time & input! Yes I agree that the crop could have been a bit tighter, I do like Pauls crop on the shot, I'm always a little too afraid of it going too far. Camera setting, Im blonde, maths...YUK! got to work more on this to improve.

Some nice shots in your portfolio!!

There is only one thing I dislike about your portfolio, coming to the end of it! Your nude shots have so much variety it's really refressing to see; There are no two shots the same.

Well done, keep up the excellent work that you do.

Just wanted to say I really enjoyed looking over your pics from the States - particularly the NYC pics; lots of deja vu there for me. Also found your comments very pertinent. Frequently, that's what I thought when I stood there (e.g. the number of flags you see.).

Very good portfolio

Hi, dropped in to take a look around from the Eighth Avenue evening light shot - must admit that I really like your cityscapes and landscapes and some of the more abstract stuff here (I'm afraid model work isn't my thing, really). I'll be back...
