Hi, I'm David, I live in a village near the coast in South Devon. I’m primarily a landscape photographer but I’ll photograph all sorts of things when the opportunity’s there. I’m well placed for the coast and Dartmoor so most frequently I’ll be looking for open moors, big vistas, little harbours, boats and crashing waves.
 
I first heard about blipfoto while attending a workshop at Lakeland Photographic Holidays with JohnGravett who enthusiastically recommended this site. It seemed like a great challenge and up until the two year marker I uploaded an image every day. I’ve now done three years and missed just a few. I don’t feel it’s necessary to go out if the weather doesn’t inspire me and I don’t really feel the need for ‘emergency blips’.
 
Year 4 was quite eventful with the community buyout of the site and it feels so much better to have an enthusiastic organisation communicating well with the membership. 
 
Year 5 then? I've blipped an awful lot of the places round here by now so it gets more and more difficult to find new images without travelling further. I also find it more difficult to reply to the comments on my journal and I prefer to comment on others photographs than spend time saying 'thank you' on mine, although I'm always grateful. I'm interested in photography, so I'm more likely to comment on your journal if your images speak to me.
