I have always been a keen photographer taking photographs of a variety of subjects. I also enjoy editing some of them into some form of artwork.

I gained a Business Studies Certificate at The Queen Elizabeth’s College Leatherhead, which enabled me to take a job as a Finance Officer

Just for fun, I have enjoyed doing “Open University courses”.
Completed courses:
A103 An introduction to the humanities
T171 You, your computer and the net
T183 Design and the Web
Al71 Start writing for the internet
T180 Living with the net: using computing to enrich your life
T189 Digital photography: creating and sharing better images. This, if it is still available, is a course I would recommend to any budding photographer

In the past I have enjoyed watercolour and acrylic painting.
I had my own small pottery, for over fifteen years.

I suffer a disability, which keeps me in constant pain; I suppose I should be depressed and miserable, however, I am not, for I enjoy life to the full, and my many hobbies and interests, keep my mind off pain.

I enjoy exploring the countryside, the coast, old buildings. It’s not just something I like doing, but a passion; I expect to find treasures at every turn and what is surprising, I usually do. My wife June accompanies me on these outings, which makes them even more enjoyable.

The cameras I use are: a Panasonic Lumix DMC-G3 and a trusty little Kodak Z915
