A rather ornate gazebo in Forde Abbey gardens. The abbey itself can just be seen in the distance. Of course the abbot along with the monks were all kicked out of this beautiful garden by Henry VIII.

Photography has been an obsession since I was 13 years old and went off to Italy clutching my mother’s 1940s roll film camera. I’ve been fooling with computers since I bought an Amiga 1000 back in 1985. My first chunky pixelized images were digitized into that machine using a black and white CCTV camera. At last, with today’s software and hardware I feel that I can create the images I see in my mind’s eye. Visit my website at
