AboutGetting back into photography again after a break of over a year and enjoying it again
Canon 400d, Canon 24-105, Canon 50mm, Sigma 18-50 & Tamron 70-300
I'm a systems monitoring consultant, I have several home PC's with a mixture of Windows and Linux operating systems.
For picture manipulation, I use Lightroom 5 and Elements 10
I live in Nottingham, married with three grown up children and a granddaughter.
Other hobbies; Walking, cooking and eating good food, drinking good wine and real ales, home brewing.
Music: an eclectic collection from the heavy metal and Progressive Rock of my youth through folk and ethnic to the Classics. As with food and most things I'll try (almost) anything once...
Attitude to life; Rapidly fading from Optimistic Realist (Glass half full) to Grumpy Old Man (glass nearly empty and not many bottles left in the cellar)
