I’ve always loved taking photos, no matter what the subject, although I have to say that most of them are taken whilst on holiday.
It was whilst in Turkey a few years ago, that I happened to meet a very nice lady who was a member of Red Bubble. She was photographing chickens at the time, and came over to explain what she was doing! She told me all about R/B and ever since then I was determined to become a part of it myself.
I have now been a member for over 4 years, and since retiring in 2012, have been able to spend a lot more time going out and about taking pictures. When I first joined R/B I had a Canon Ixus 8515 digital camera with a 3 x optical zoom. Now that my interest has grown even more over the last year, I have changed to a Panasonic Lumix TZ 25 with a 16 x optical zoom which obviously gives me a lot more scope.
My camera is never far from my side, so I am always ready to capture those special moments.
I am so pleased Lilian introduced me to R/B in that chance meeting in Turkey, and I still contact her if I am in need of help and advice.
