Lustre: Professional photo paper with a fine grain pebble texture
Metallic: Glossy finish and metallic appearance to create images with exceptional visual interest and depth
I love taking random photos, which I later put together to create some kind of mystical image; here is a good example of what I mean. The sculptures are one image, Stonehenge another and lastly Old Wardour Castle. These images were put together using Adobe E All images are my own
I live in sunny Southampton,England with my wife June. Retired, I am able to dedicate more time to my hobbies and interests, which are, photography, photo manipulation, cooking, gardening, reading, sightseeing, chess, painting, a variety of music and computing. Up until I was fifteen, I was known as Les, and as I lived in Hooton in the Wirral, I became known as Les from Hooton, hence my pseudonym “Hootonles”. Since my leaving Hooton I have preferred to use my middle Christian name John.
