One of my first loves is Photography, I have been taking photos since i was about 16 when i was bought a Nikon FE3 for my birthday from a father, and with his help took to it like a duck to water, back in those days I i am talking about 27 years here, that photos were taken on a roll film and how odd does it feel to say that.. Roll Film!! for those who don’t know you had a film inside a case that you had to put into the camera via a door in the back, and secure it in by means of pulling a little bit of the film and wind it on to a winder securing it and making sure only enough was done so not to get light on to the Film.. close door to camera then you can begin to take photos, and these were then developed at a camera shop or chemist like boots,,
managed to find a pic of it too, and my it looks complicated now..
Now i use a compact digital camera, nothing too expensive or flash but it does the job i need it to do.. There are many of my children obviously but for now those won’t be put on here as i am anon at the moment.. but i also take a lot of scenery distant photos as well as close ups..
I love to go to walks and take photos as a way to de stress but it is also a pleasurable moment just being at one with the nature too. I find both winter and spring magical, you have the ice and snow in winter and the flowers that bloom in the spring, i do take a lot of photos of wildlife too like birds, horse, wildfowl as well a steam and machinery,, i am only a armature photography but i do like what i take too.. Years ago i passed a BTEC in taking and developing my own black and white photos, and boy that was a great feeling to get your won picture you have taken and developed yourself,, such an achievement..
Below is one of my photos taken this winter
