I retired from the Printing Industry 8 years ago @the age 61 having worked in the Graphics side of the trade for 46 years.Yes I started work in 1962 and was offered an adult apprenticeship @ the age of 18. I am now a grandfather to twin girls aged 9 and an 4 year old grandson + another Grandson now one year old!

I live in a small village of Longwell Green, between the famous,historic cities of Bristol and Bath

They are the grandchildren I never thought I'd have and are the pride of my life.
I can now get back to a hobby which has been on 'ice' since my daughters were kids(40 years ogo) ??
With the advent of Digital photography I sold my two Rollie SL35 SLR's and took the great step into this new world.
I first had a Nikon D60. But found it a little restricted so I then had a S/H D200 & a D3. When I reached 65 I treated myself to a Nikon D800 and passed on the D200 to a friend. I have also become the proud owner of a Sigma 150-500 O/S Zoom lens and Sigma 105 f2.8 macro lens.The set up I now have, I think is the best that any Hobbiest could dream of ?
