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

    These are one of my favorite kinds of birds. Awesome shot!!

  • Took me a while to get back to this one, sorry for the delay. I couldn’t believe my luck when I saw this couple in a palm tree. Of course he wasn’t too happy when I stuck a lens in his face but he wasn’t going anywhere, not ’till he had finished the task at hand anyway! :-) Glad you enjoyed the doves, thanks very much JR, cheers.
