About My Blog

The writings here are pretty personal - based on observation and experience - I've had quite a few years with a camera in my hand now. I don't claim to be an expert, just a passionate photographer who continues to learn daily and in turn, my experiences may be of interest to others.

I variously use a Canon 20D Digital SLR, Canon 300D digital SLR, a Canon A 520 compact and my most recent addition, the Fuji F11 compact. In the past I have also used a Fuji S602 Zoom and Fuji 2800 and a Nikon Coolpix 3200.
