introducing myself

My name is Adam, I am a Scot who been in Australia since 1973. I worked as a civil engineer until I retired a few years ago. My wife and I now live on the Central Coast of New South Wales.

I have had chronic fatigue for 11 years now. I am a little better than I was a few years ago, but I do not see that I am going to get cured of it. If I did, I would be encumbered with some consequences of aging – I am 69, but do not feel that is old. I do not think we ever feel older than we did in, oh, maybe our 30s or 40s. But some niggling things are presenting themselves. For example, peripheral neuropathy, where my feet are numb due to nerves dying off, is a pain in the bum so to speak.

I started photography working with black and white film in an improvised darkroom in a cupboard under the stairs in our house in Edinburgh.

I lost touch with photography over many years, even the best of opportunities while I worked in Africa for 7 years and traveled all over the southern part of that dark continent. But it was brighter in these days …

Lately I have got right back into photography. I have seven cameras or is it eight, none cost more than 10 dollars on eBay. Oh, except my Fuji Finepix s5600, which I love and was a present All the others are film cameras, I think my favourite of these is an Olympus is1000 which I got for a dollar on eBay. It’s got a lovely lens.

My passion for taking photographs gets me out and about and the fun of it postpones the tiredness I will feel until my little trip may be over. Then I can play with my shots at home on the computer, which was also a present, from two of my daughters – my two step-daughters.
