Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.

    Travel Europe long enough and you will have seen so many your mind will tend to ignore them. At least that was experience when living in GB. Can’t help but appreciate the craftsmanship, though! Nice one, Phil. :-)
