About Me

I am a retired banker from the time when it was a trustworthy profession.
My interests are geography, travel, gardening, cricket and cooking (and in no particular order).
For anyone interested I was of the 'point and shoot' brigade. However I recently acquired a Canon EOS 1200D, which gives a whole new outlook on life.
Apart from the odd scanned image, and the odd image taken on my phone camera, early submissions featured a Fuji FinePix F40 with the occasional Fuji FinePix F810. I graduated to a Fuji FinePix F600 EXR (with inbuilt GPS)and a Fuji FinePix S4530. And, yes I have been to Japan.
A frequent visitor to Austria where my wife and I chill out. I have become as a result a minor contributor to the German Geograph site. LinkExternal link
