I have loved taking photographs since I was handed the “power” aged around 10. I have had many cameras since then, most costing under £100, and have enjoyed every one of them. I take pictures because I love the process and the results (sometimes) and if these can be enjoyed by others, then this is an added and welcomed bonus. Currently using Canon 60Ds with L series lenses.

    What a beautiful boy! How old is he?

  • He is 4 years old and I got him from the rescue centre….I am so lucky and he behaves more like a dog than a cat.
