Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

I chose to turn, this fishing boat on the beach at Hastings UK, into a sepia image, firstly because it is an old looking boat, and secondly, because it is a strong image.

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.
