My 'normal' things are: Married to a lovely wife, father to 2 lovely kids, (grown up and flown the nest now), grandad to 2 lovely grandsons . Living just north of Southampton in Southern England. All great.

My not-so-normal things perhaps.
A love of all things aircraft developed from growing up on an RAF base and watching aircraft taking off from my pram.... (yes, I did achieve one of my dreams and get a full Pilots Licence and about 350 hours of solo time)
A 'period of time' in 'military electronics'. Yes, I know its a broad, vague brush..... But I truly don't know how much I'm allowed to say......
Then many years working in broadcast television, initially in engineering, laterly in sales and management. Travelled a lot because of it including over 100 trips to the USA and many to the far east.
This is now my second lap around Photography. I was really enthusiastic back in the days of film and 35mm. Then some years snapping with snappy cameras, a flirt with video cameras, and now back into it with a vengeance and loving the way it makes me look at the world around me a lot deeper.  I don't really have a photographic genre (let me know if you think otherwise)....I enjoy trying my hand at landscape, macro, portrait, sports, quirky and the simply bizarre. I must be getting reasonably good at photography as in July 2017 I achieved my LRPS distinction with the Royal Photographic Society.
My sense of humour overflows into my pictures on a regular basis and I certainly make no apology for that. In my head I'm still 16 or so.... and sometimes my comments and pictures show that.
Oh, and a keen online computer gamer. I love letting 16 year olds know they were just outdrawn and beaten by an old'un. Old age and treachery beating youth and enthusiasm. :)
