I have been taking photographs since I was quite young. Both my father and grandfather had reasonably good cameras – although they only used them to take the usual family snapshots – and I was allowed to use them whenever I wanted.

I started experimenting in my teens and did a little formal training as part of a college course in the 70’s. One of my earliest employers allowed me to learn a bit more and to afford my first ‘proper’ camera, a Konica Autoreflex TC. For no particular reason, other than I like them, I’ve stuck with that brand, through a couple of name changes, and today use Sony A Series cameras. Oh, and my phone… well, doesn’t everyone?

For your delectation and delight, I’ve arranged the pictures according to where they were taken, rather than what they are of. Hope that’s okay…?
