My name is Larry Lingard-Davis and I am a retired Gardener.
As well as getting involved with Genealogy and Medieval History, with some Acting thrown in, most of my time is taken up with photography and Music, as I have been a muso for most of my life and play Blues Harmonica and Bodhran’ whenever I get the chance.
I live at Riddells Creek in the Macedon Ranges of Victoria
.
Some of the highlights in my life have been getting invited to Hampton Court Palace to see the running of the gardens as a special guest… / , being invited to tour the workings of the Glasgow City Council Parks & Gardens Dept… / , and having afternoon tea and spending some time with Dame Jean Maxwell Scott at Abbotsford House. / and being cast to play a judge in the movie “Strictly Ballroom”…
.
I try to do the best with my images, but am always willing to learn more. So I am all ears to hear what your comments might be !!!!!
If you want to copy my work or use it in any way, or even to collaborate, then please have the courtesy to contact me and we can come to some arrangement.
