I have many creative interests, although photography has been an interest from an early age. I live near Dartmoor in Devon, SW England and enjoy going on country walks with my camera. Some of my favourite subjects to photograph are landscapes, shops, interiors, gardens/flowers, as well as the old back streets and alleyways of Europe.
Prior to the digital age I was familiar with SLR film cameras and used to develop and print my own photos in the kitchen. When computers came along I bought a cheap compact camera for blogging purposes and so most shots prior to around June 2010 cannot be enlarged too much and are available as greetings cards or postcards only.
June 2010 I upgraded my compact camera to a Panasonic Lumix DMC- LX3 just before a trip to Austria and Munich, so everything from that date onwards was taken with that camera. From Dec 2012 I am now using a Nikon D3100.
