I've been reading so many other people's bios on Blipfoto that I thought I should be ashamed of myself for not providing some info about me.

I live in northern Leicestershire, UK, where I am member of a local camera club. I became 'passionate' about photography after taking a short course with the Open University.  You know that saying? 'If I can't take my camera, I'm not going!'

When I think of all the places I've been lucky to live in and visit, I could cringe that I didn't take better photos at the time. Which is why I like travel photography.

I like several genres of photography. I end up doing landscape and nature shots. My nature photography is tame compared with the naturalists who get down on the ground to take photos across water, or sit for hours in hides waiting for a bird to 'do its thing.' Too much other stuff to do, like cooking dinner, to be sitting patiently all day.

Lately, I've been doing wedding photography thanks to my friend Hayley who sub-contracts me.

As for other blips, it's what takes my eye that day.
