I began my photographic hobby at the age of 12, developing and printing 120, 620 &35mm B&W, forever learning and refining the fascinating art of photography. Now at 78 I still continue with increased enjoyment using digital medium – and still learning.
My favourite places for photography are the Melbourne Zoos . These are the Melbourne Zoo , the Healesville Sanctuary and the Werribee Open Range Zoo.

    This is great, it not only has a vintage feel, but it has a classy and classic feel as well. I am always checking art out wherever I go , especially when we go out to dinner. This is like one of those images I will stare at forever at a resteruant thinking" why doesn’t anyone photograph like that any more". Well done, great tone. Exceptional piece.

    Thanks Alexia, I uploaded for your " Out of the Past " group , I was not sure if it was suitable or not . The original is faded and marked it took many hours to bring it up to the condition it is but worth it . Thanks goodness for image software I can preserve family history for future generations . :-)
