Another from Blanchland Abbey.

Canon 450D
Sigma 28-135MM @ 70mm
1/5 second f/5.6 ISO-100

Featured 4th September 2001

Inspired by my dad in visual arts and music from a very early age. He mentored me in photography, film processing and printing when I was 7 or 8 years old. He wouldn’t teach me to play guitar though so I had to teach myself, and played bass in a group while I was at University for pocket money. I took early retirement in 2009 and rekindled my passion for photography. My art is eclectic. I’ll photograph anything and everything. The world is full of images just waiting to be captured.

    My favourite photographic shots from anyone are ones like these, when the photographer has used his/her artistic eye to capture the moment, then sealed it in time with the lens. Love it.

  • I’m overwhelmed by your comment, it’s so spiritual and complimentary. Thank you so very much.
