I like anything that is well done, except steak...I like that medium rare. I take photos as a hobby and love art in general. The groups and galleries in this collection have been painstakingly put together over the years. Every single photo fulfils the criteria of the group and is defendable. If you disagree with my criteria, that is up to you. You are welcome to stay, leave or discuss.

 

I like to listen to intelligent people and love to hear a well-argued point being made. I especially appreciate Hitchcock, David Bowie, Dexys Midnight Runners, JK Rowling, Rockwell Kent, Turner, Velazquez, Alain Laboile, Cartier-Bresson, Caravaggio, Vermeer, George Bellows, Camille Paglia, Jordan Peterson, Stephen Fry, JK Rowling, Katharine Birbalsingh, Oscar WIlde, William Goldman, Ira Levin, John Wyndham, Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing. Sean Connery, Will Hay, Norman Wisdom, George Formby, Harold Lloyd, Laurel and Hardy, Tony Heller, David Dilley, Dr. Patrick Moore, Dr. Tim Ball, Ned Nikolov, the Hitchens brothers, Ronan and Michael Connolly, John Lennox, Douglas Murray, James Delingpole, Andrew Neil, Janice Fiamengo, Brett Weinstein, Christina Hoff-Somers, Andrew Doyle, Ricky Gervais, Valentina Zharkova, Maggie Smith, Alan Rickman, Albert Finney, Kirsten Dunst, Maggie Gyllenhall, Julia Stiles, Kenneth Williams, Peter Ustinov, J.K. Rowling, Shirley Ann Field, Joanna Lumley, Shirley Eaton, Bill Bryson, Sid James, Valerie Leon, Madeline Smith, Frankie Howerd, Charles Hawtrey, John Landis, Eddie Murphy, Denzel Washington, Jim Caviezel, Matthew McConnaughey, JK Rowling, Woody Harrelson, Morgan Freeman, Peter Whittle, Freddie Sayers, Rex Murphy, Ezra Levant, Neil Oliver, Russell Brand, Julia Hartley-Brewer, Mike Graham and not to forget JK Rowling.

 

Should anyone wish to use a photo, please contact me here. Testimonials are much appreciated. I would love to try out new cameras and showcase them if any camera firms are willing. I use my camera every day and viewing and publishing photos is part of my daily existence. Any financial help with a view to buying an automatic lens for my Fuji would be MUCH appreciated, as I've just been made redundant and can't afford to buy one.

Very impressive stuff! And you have done this with crop sensor cameras that can be had for moderate cost.! Very, very well done. Like you, am a Fujifilm fan. So far, I have only invested in x100 series cameras. I like that they do not allow me to change lenses. This keeps my GAS from getting even more outrageous.

Glad you found my limited postings worth "following" else I might not have come upon your work here...which I find very interesting. You have an "eye" for the sensuous world around us and a great feel for composition plus admirable skill in both capture and presentation. Nice work!
