On 1st January 2024, my 8th year began! My love of photography comes from my Dad, who is a fabulous photographer and I have loved his pictures all my life. I grew up with the smell of chemicals, the hush of the darkroom and the thrill of seeing the picture emerge as he washed his photographs. It gave me a love of looking for light, shade, contrast, angle and interest through a lens.

I really enjoy the creativity of playing with a camera, but I still find modern digital cameras challenging and confusing with the extensive menus and array of buttons. Having fun taking photos, but also now not worried if I miss a few days here and there. Life is more important and at times it takes over, but I do enjoy the diary aspect of this project.

Home is presently the south east of England, though I have lived in many places around Britain and around the world over the years. Really enjoy the global community on here and have made some "real life" friends out of the experience.
