Retired from a number of industries. Started off as a tin miner, ended up as a team leader in a factory. A lot of variety in between.

My main interests, photographically, are landscapes, architecture and churches, preferably mediaeval.

I am currently teaching myself wildlife photography. Also teaching myself patience.
