About Me

TF1961 : Three Wise Men ? by Richard Croft I enjoy exploring new places with my cameras, almost always on a bike on one of my trusty steeds SK7369 : View towards Tuxford by Richard Croft TM4792 : Dicks Mount by Richard Croft TF1963 : Kinema in the Woods by Richard Croft and with a particular interest in history, architecture and churches. Avid bibliophile for all things local, historical and topographical, with a special interest in Queen Eleanor (of Castile) and the Eleanor Crosses.
I haven't had a 'nickname' since school in the 1970s so I panicked a bit when I first registered with Geograph and chose the common nickname for people from Lincolnshire - hence Yellowbelly. I think of myself as a photographer on a bike rather than a cyclist with a camera, Geograph as collaborative rather than competitive and I'm not in the slightest interested in points, leaderboards or any Geograph / supplemental discussion.
Other people's photographs have inspired greater attention to composition and I hope my photography has improved. My cameras are a Canon 60d with 15-85mm lens most of the time, Canon 450d with a wide-angle 10-22mm lens, a 55-200 lens, 17-85 lens and a great little compact Panasonic Lumix TZ7.
