My name is Alan, and I live in East Lothian (Scotland) with my wife Claire (got married in April 2013), and faithful companion Archie, a cocker spaniel (born in 2012).

Unfortunately, I'm an unwilling workaholic... It just seems that I'm always working, with little free time. That's one of the main reasons for wanting to keep a blipfoto journal. It will hopefully force me into taking time out every day to take a photo or two. They won't all be show stoppers, but as long as it gets me thinking about photography on a daily basis, I'll be happy.

I'm partly legally trained, with a BA degree in Criminal Justice, and a CertHE in 'Police Studies'. However, I am not, nor do I claim to be, intelligent!

I currently have, and use, a Canon EOS 550D, Samsung Galaxy Camera, a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ40, or my iPhone 6 or iPad mini..

You can find me on Flickr for more photos (more than one a day, I mean), and Twitter for daily rantings and ramblings.
