Cottage Dream by hootonles
Clear

As I keep a camera with me most of the time, I have a habit of stopping our car here, there and everywhere in order to take a photo; the one problem with that, is I’m not always certain just where I have taken some of my photos, as is the case here. However, it is such a lovely cottage, I thought I should upload it anyway. As you can see, here I have been playing the artist :O)

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.
