I am a biologist & naturalist, musician & member of the audience, photographer, infusion-enthusiast, Japanophile, family member, & a(n only very slightly) solitary social butterfly (I'm told)... I love it when form aesthetically following function: I'm mad about fine stationery, and musical instruments, and interesting architecture. I'm intrigued by words and the English language; I enjoy crosswords (concise and cryptic) and typically tend towards sarcasm.

I love photography because it is a pursuit I can take anywhere: if ever I'm at a loose end, I could be taking photographs... I love the challenge of finding a shot where, at first glance, the world seems uninteresting or unattractive.
