I've been using blipfoto for a few weeks now, and I intend to stay around for a while, so time for a few notes. 
I'm a keen amateur photographer in the weekends and evenings, and my day job involves working with earth observation data from satellites and airborne sensors, so I'm often behind a computer screen processing one kind of image or another. 
Pre-Corvid-19 I spent a fair amount of time travelling for work, both with in the UK and Europe, and try to make sure that I have a camera with me. I joined blipfoto to improve my photography and to explore ideas that I would otherwise ignore. Home is near Consett in the north east of England, an area that is often ignored by tourists and photographers, but a lovely place to live and photograph.
I first heard about blipfoto through friends in the City of London & Cripplegate Photographic Society and try to stay connected to this group to stay inspired.
