This site is an extensive online photo
album of snapshots that I've taken since 1982. Plus a couple of
extra bits and pieces that personal websites always carry, like
this page for example.
I bought my first camera (a 110 fixed focus) on a school trip to Belguim. On the trip I took a lot of photos of buildings and views, but only a couple of photos of people. When I got the photos back I realised that the best photos were the candid ones capturing people. They provoked the most memories and froze the moment in time. Since then I've upgraded through 35mm, APS and now on to Digital. I always took lots of candid photos and over the years amassed thousands of them.
I currently take pictures using an Olympus Stylus 7.3 mega pixal camera.
These photos document life through my eyes, growing up in rural Nottinghamshire. My parents owned a pub thoughout most of this time and it was the place to be, with people travelling from miles around. But these photos were unsorted and kept in the loft.
In the Summer of 2000 I met some Amercian
girls on holiday in Kavos, Corfu. They
had homemade websites which contained holiday
photos. When I returned we swopped photos
by putting them online. I was so impressed
with the ease of viewing of my photos online
that I set about scanning and publishing
the best of the rest of them.
I continue to add photos and the site is
updated as often as I can (although Facebook is rapidly making updating this site obsolete). The photos are password protected - there's no dodgy photos or anything, sorry
to disappoint you - but you
wouldn't let anyone view your personal
photos, would you?
