Many thanks to everyone who views or comments on my work. Sadly time does not allow me to reply or reciprocate any longer (hopefully this will change if I win the lottery), so I will have to say my thanks here. I will always try to repay a favourite though.
I’m the founder & co host of the group cuba libre
I recently published my first book images of Cuba (sales 1 & counting) :-)

I’m a full time IT engineer, and part time poet/photographer based in the West Country of England.
My first camera was a Boots Beirette 35mm back in the 60’s (my sister still uses it to this day). Today I’m all digital using mainly Nikon gear, though whether I’ve improved any is a matter for debate!
First picture I can remember taking was of the Flying Scotsman.
I love the comic creations of P G Wodehouse, the historical fiction of Valerio Massimo Manfredi, and reading biographies of Politicians, historical figures & many others.
Bill Bryson can make me spit coke (the fizzy kind) through my nose with a cutting phrase, as can the Louis Knight novels of Malcolm Pryce & the absurdities of Christopher Buckley.
Musically I’ve fairly eclectic tastes from Jazz to classical, from punk to glam, and anything in between that floats my boat.
If I was on the proverbial island & could only chose one song it would probably be Summertime by Louis Armstrong & Ella Fitzgerald, but only beacuse Cry me a River by Julie London would be too depressing!
Of course if Kirsty would let me have the soundtrack to the Blues Brothers that would kill several birds with one stone…
I have fixed opinions on some things: like there is no Superman other than Christopher Reeves, and no Bond but Sean Connery (alright I’ll admit Daniel Craig’s pretty good too).
Please feel free to leave comments. I have a thick skin so if you think I can improve please tell me.
