I'm a middle-aged English bloke with a camera or three and a weakness for bad jokes. Photography is my pastime. I don't take it, or myself too seriously - too many other people do that. I go on holiday, not travel, I take snaps not works of art. I am a "Gentleman Amateur" and proud to be so. I used to be a moderator but I resigned because I have principles.

Photography, writing, slow food, travelling with my eyes and mind open
