In the centre of the New Forest in Hampshire (England) is the town of Lyndhurst and as you leave the town on the Cadnam Road, is this lovely old thatched cottage; adorned with roses, it is one of the prettiest I have seen. I have, shall we say, worked on it a little, just to portray it at its best.

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.
