One wife, Two kids, Three cameras, several computers, too many hobbies.


Yellow teeth, bad breath, no sense of humour :-)


My wife says this captures the essentiial me:

Self Portrait


On the photography side of things, I find myself drawn more and more to macro, though I like general wildlife shooting (zoos, safari parks etc.) and old buildings.


I like HDR too, no apologies, it may be the case that cameras of the future do HDR by default, in which case the whole discussion is merely academic.
