Hello – and thank you for stopping by.

I live in Portsmouth Hampshire UK.

I began to think about taking “proper” photographs in about June 2009 – sometimes I get it right, often I get it wrong! But that’s what real life is all about!

I joined RB in about October of 2010 and have found the whole experience uplifting and full of joy. There is so much to inspire on this site – so much incredible beautiful work from many unsung artistic heroes. Thank you fellow RBubblers for all the support you have shown me – for the laughs, for the inspiration and, sometimes, even for the tears that come when viewing an especially beautiful or moving image. I am indebted to you – truly.

Thank you so much for all your lovely words and thoughts – you will never know how much they mean to me today after what has been the most difficult 24 hours in my life for many a year. I know we never meet but I consider you my friends and my sustenance – I wish I could do more than just say “thank you”. / I promise to catch up with things as and when I can – I know…

Please forgive me..........

I meant to catch up with replies to comments on my images and to post comments on your images tonight as things were just getting back to normal after Husband had a couple of weeks off work and we managed to spend some time together – this is a rather unusual happening. He works all the hours God sends and is in a highly pressurised job – expectations are so high these days. / …
