I am a 59 year old Glaswegian who has lived more of his life south of the Scottish border in neighbouring England. I am a career Railway man working initially as a Signalman (politically correct phrase now is Signaller) in London. I operated the old lever type signalboxes to the more than modern push route type when I spent several years at the very busy Shenfield in Essex. Photography is one of my passions. It gives me purpose. It allows me to see beautiful things.
Today I live in a beautiful place called The Stables in River, Kent. I am going to do my utmost to enjoy my life and capture as many memories and things of beauty and interest through my camera lens as I can. I am looking to experiment and try new things. One of those is to try out black and white photography. Another is to be more creative in what I photograph. So I’m going to push both myself and my camera to its limits. Let's see how I get on.
