Profile

About

I am a retired structural engineer. Retirement having been enforced upon me by the event of several serious strokes in 2004. I have, as part of my recovery/rehabilitation process, taken up photography as something which I have often, during my working life, wanted to do but never had the time for. It is invaluable as an inspiration and a means of getting out and about. I'm not yet a very good photographer, but I am improving, I hope Smile So I've identified myself as an Enthusiast ~ which is more of an expression of my attitude toward photography, rather than a representation of my ability at it.

Good evening Jack, firstly thank you so much for your kind and very generous words on my PF. Having had a little time to look through your PF, you have super images with a depth and variety in your PF that I always consider vital in photography, to prevent us from becoming stayed and pigeon holed. It is in my humble opinion not only about being able to capture the image (always important Smile ) but to be able to see the image in the first place, I know I have probably missed more than I have seen over the years, but I continue to look and see and hopefully capture Smile.

Regards

Hugh

P.S. I shall return Smile

A very fine and varied portfolio Jack, I enjoyed viewing your Woodcraft items, made even more interesting when reading of the source. Good to see someone else with an interest in Classic Cars and Bikes.

Some intricate wood turnings Jack.Far removed from my turning days with a 36 inch diameter by 26 feet long chilled cast iron paper roller.Usual turning speed would be around 4 revs per minute.Delivery dates were around 6 months. I suppose it is no wonder the Japanese got all our work !!

Hi Jack, you have a very interesting mix of images in your portfolio, but what stands out for me is colour and form, you certainly have a creative eye and your work has quality, particularly like the Orchid as I have struggled with flowers. Great work! Many thanks for the comment on my portfolio, very much appreciated indeed. Smile
