    1. Thank you, Sam. I’ve been using a camera since I was age 11, so for 62 years. I think I’m getting the hang of it now; mind you, digital tech may give many more options to the artist in the photographer, but film and paper were definitely easier to learn!

          1. I was a photographer with the RAF for a few years, Sam. It’s where I learned much of the technical stuff early on. I then worked as a press photographer on a local newspaper. I spent some time as a freelance, writing and illustrating photographic articles for the UK photographic press. But, for reasons I won’t go into here, I moved away from professional photography around the time when digital cameras first emerged. I also, at around the same time, took to using writing as a way of expressing myself, and have now had 8 novels published and many short stories. I returned to photography about 15 years ago, after a break of around 6 or 7 years. I missed making pictures.
            I’m now retired from employment so spend more time on my writing and my part-time professional photography. I no longer do the weddings that were once a substantial part of my income, instead, taking pictures for pleasure that I can offer to others for their pleasure, and sometimes, for some small income to support what is, as you know, a very expensive activity.

            1. That’s such a great journey of yours! Thanks a lot for sharing. You have witnessed the eras of old cameras and emergence of digital cameras and the later on. I really appreciate your journey, dedication and skilled photography. Your experience in the field of photography is remarkable. And I would like you to keep guiding Amateur photographers like me from time to time. I would be more than glad and honoured to be guided by a person who has walked along such a great journey of photography. Please also share your novel names. I would love to read those. I am not good at expressing in words but I love reading a lot. It would be interesting to read the books.

              1. Thank you, Sam, for your kind words. I’ll continue my ‘Picture of the Day’ series for a few more months at least. And I’m always happy to answer questions from people creating images.
                As for my books, they’re here on my website. Just pop up to the top of the page and hover your cursor under the tab ‘Books and Other Published Work’ and you’ll find a drop-down menu. Click on any of those headings and you’ll find my written work listed there. There’s even a free short story. Enjoy!

    1. Thank you so much, Joni. I enjoy writing stories, and I’ve been taking photographs since I was 11 years old, inspired by my talented artist mother. It’s great to find people who not only appreciate my efforts but take the time and trouble to share their pleasure. I’ll keep producing books and taking pictures probably until I leave this world. Hopefully, by then, it’ll be a little better than when I entered it. It’s the most we can all hope for.
      I advise other visitors here to have a look at Joni’s site (you can access it by clicking on her name in the comment above) where you’ll find her lovely pictures and her sensuous and emotionally charged poetry.

    1. Thanks, Dewin. I started out as professional photographer many years ago, but words overtook my passion and I spend most of my time writing stories now. However, with a painter for a mother, and a photographer for a father, I guess image making will always be in my blood. And I do love sharing the beauty of the world in pictures.

        The photographs are very self-assured and polished: Beauty clearly favours your lens 🙂

    1. Thank you, Livinia. Photography was my first love, when my father rewarded a good school report with a camera when I was 13. I spent a number of years in the photographic world as a professional and I still love making pictures. But words became my real love in my later teens, when I read voraciously. Nowadays, when I have the chance, I like to combine the two. If you’re interested, you can find a recent example of that combination in a guest post I did: https://mohamadkarbi.com/2017/12/31/a-year-in-the-forest-of-dean/
