Hi folks-I am probably on here for the wrong reason as I do not take my photography ''too seriously''.I have a strange subject matter for my pics,namely rust and grot !! I do enjoy commenting on your images, but I do like to inject a little brand of humour,so please do not take them too seriously either.I just think life is too short,so lets make the best of it !!
I am 60 years young and born and bred in Edinburgh.I have been taking photos for about 20 years.You will all have heard of the expression to take in the bigger picture.My way is the opposite.I look for the smaller picture within the bigger one.I prefer the details,line,shape,texture,ect.One of the reasons I chose this site is I have seen plenty of that here.Long may it continue.
