Here I have put together those pictures of people, fauna and flora I have seen on my travels which record the impressions made on me. Some are pictures where the artistic effect is the goal, others are where the subject is the dominant purpose. All are those, which I hope, you will appreciate.

I have been fascinated with the art of taking photographs for many years. The difference between a good photograph and a memorable image is that elusive combination of light and chance. Coupled with interesting subjects, I have produced what I hope are entertaining views.
