Photography has been a hobby for many years. My first professional camera was a Minolta X700 and served me for many years. I carried it during my travel across the world but many of the pictures I took with it are now lost. After several years using a small Canon Ixus, I finally bought a “proper” though digital Canon EOS 450 in 2009. Everything need to be learned again!

I enjoy taking photos of people, building, food and occasional oddities. I use Photoshop moderately, usually to slightly enhance and sharpen the colour. Occasionally I use it to create some artistic rather dramatic effect. Only a few sections of the 15,000 digital shots I took since 2003 are available on my photoblog.
