“I am lucky enough to travel the world regularly. Most of my luggage is camera and computer equipment and I am known by close friends as the bag lady. Many of my images are of pipe organs but they aren’t limited to those. Over the years I have photographed far too much to be able to process everything, so if you have a particular subject you would like to see but can’t find it, let me know and the chances are that if it’s a pipe organ, I may just have one tucked away in my drawers.

Flurry of activity

Delighted to find a big flurry of buying activity from my shop! Perhaps the pipe organ is bigger news than Wimbledon or the World Cup Football? I doubt it. But I can dream. / But a big thank you to those who have put their orders my way – it certainly helps make my day.
