I don’t shoot birds any more

I shot my first bird in 1972. I have felt bad about it ever since. Really. Machoism at end of Uni camp. But we all grow up. Continuing my journey in photography I must go where probably everyone goes when they get their first DSLR. Birds. Canon 7D with EF70-200 …


A journey in photography

Many years ago, I went to buy a hi fi system. I didn’t want any cheap music box. I wanted to hear pure sound. The shop welcomed me with open arms – here was a genuine hi fi enthusiast. No fancy surround sound. Not six channels, just two. Plain and …
