I have been interested in photography since the late 60's. On school trips I was handed the family Kodak Instamatic with instructions to take great care of it and don't waste the film ;-)
In 1983 I treated myself to an Olympus OM10. Great little camera. I then experimented with all types of film from the lovely saturated Kodachrome 25 to the Ilford XP1. My fingers in the mid 80's were a funny shade of yellow, not through smoking but from dipping my fingers into the acid baths when printing B&W's. I sort of ditched 'proper'photography when my two daughters were born and sold the Slr's. To be honest I had quite a bit of fun with a Canon P&S and we all have a laugh when we look back at the family photos. In the early noughties I bought a Fuji S602 and from that moment I was once again hooked. I was fortunate enough, in 2005, to have an image accepted on the BBC Countryfile calendar with a scene taken by that camera. That was my 'I was Mrs Slocombe's bridesmaid' moment and I have had little or no luck with competitions since then. The images I have featured on here are all my own work and are from the same frame,not made up by cutting and pasting other images so what you see is what was taken. I do a whole range of photography from Weddings to fast low flying aircraft in between my full time job in the Nuclear industry.
