About me

Really enjoying the fotocommunity site. There are so many inspiring shots
I have always been a snapaholic with a desire to learn more about photography. Like many things it has been on the to do list for 20 years and some time before I die I will squeeze in some classes. Until that time I just experiment in a somewhat haphazzard way.
Currently using a Fuji FinePix Z1, which I have had for a year and only just had time to study the manual properly. Boy it does way more than I realised! I am drawn to nature, light plays and colour. I would love to tackle photo journalist style. Love photos the evoke memories too.

    Hi Clare, and thank you for your kind comment on my pic "Bloody". You have some beautiful sunset shots here and I loved the kitty one too.

    Thanks Clare for your visit on my page. I Like your photos, the one named Shadows especially as I love such contrasts between dark and bright areas. It is always a challenge for all photographers to proper expose a film/CCD sensor.

    Best regards

    Hi Clare!
    Many thanks for your comment to my Snail observation. I'm pleased that my picture made you laugh. I'm interested to learn if Snails down-under also hop?? Could you check out and inform me please.
    Best wishes from Cheltenham UK,
