CATCH MORE WORKS HERE

I have been taking photos since I was a child, having started with a box brownie and slowly worked up to an SLR Canon film camera. I now use a Fuji S5600 digital camera (and when I remember, a tripod!)

I look for the art and beauty in nature and human endeavours, and try to capture them as I believe they were meant to be seen.

My works (other than where obvious and stated in the description) carry little or no adjustment in any editing program. I like to THINK about what I want the image to look like, plan the details and take it right, first time.

‘I was once told (by a rare and wonderful artist)
Just remember, like an artists paint brush, your camera is only a tool, a means to an end. You are in full control of the end product by the vision you have.’

I would be happy to receive any comments, critisism, suggestions and ideas. I welcome you all to join me in the never ending learning curve, that is photography.

and VERY PROUD OF IT!

THANK YOU TO ALL THE GROUPS WHO HAVE HONOURED ME WITH THERE ARE TOO MANY NOW TO MENTION, BUT YOU WILL ALWAYS HOLD A SPECIAL PLACE IN MY MEMORIES,

Does anyone else find the same thing? / I would love some craetive critisism on my writings (nothing too painful though please). I write what I …

*WINNER!!!*

I just had to gloat, just a little. I have just returned from our local Canning Show, where I decided this year (for the first time) to enter some photographs in some of the catagories available. / Images had to be printed on 6×4 paper and cost $1 per image to submit. Well I bit the bullet and entered 14 images! / *RESULTS: / 4 x FIRST PLACE / 3 x THIRD PLACE* / My son also entered 14 images…
