Constructive criticism welcomed.

Why 365... Hoping to try new techniques, hone ones I've tried before & work on post-processing with the intent of developing a style along the way. Also hoping to discover if taking photos is as much fun as I think it is when I have to shoot every day.

I'd intended to start a 365 at the beginning of 2015 but decided not too as the beginning of the year was so busy. A while later I discovered my friends Andy and Sam had started & was a bit disappointed I hadn't. New Year's resolution was to start 1st Feb 2016 but spookily on the day I'd decided that Andy texted me asking if I was going to do the 365 this year & that was sign enough for me that I should just get on with it.

Very honoured to have made it onto the popular page a few times now...
