Honour

We are supposed to show honour to everyone, even if they deserve it or not.

When you show someone honour, you lift them up, you inspire them, and you encourage them.

Once there was a lady who wanted my help and advice. I helped her only a week ago.

I see the lady rushing towards me with a big smile.

“You never guess what I got yesterday. A picture of a Buzzard. Because of your help and advice buying a camera and showing me how it works, I have a lovely picture I can’t stop looking at.”

Is helping a person a gift? Do you help that person so you can get praise and a thank you? No, you do it from the goodness of your heart.

I honour you, Marion, for having faith in me to help you. And may you capture more wonderful moments with your new friend The Camera.

I am 63 years old and and since a boy have had an interest in wildlife and in particular birds. I help my Dad with the rearing of young finches and other birds. I had many small birds as pets and as i got older and joined the Military i purchsed my first Camera, and fold out Kodak. Over a 22 year period i enjoyed many countries outside the uk and observed many species of birds. When i left the military in 2000, i bought my first digital camera a Canon 450D with a Tamron 70-300 and started my journey on capturing images of birds and animals. I quickly learned that there was a lot more to getting a good image of a bird, so i started to research the best settings for my camera in order to capture a better image. Over a 12 month period i realised that needed to invest in a better camera and lens and after research bought a Canon 50D and a 100-400 Lens. It was 2013 when i really got to grips with the setup and came across a lovely Short Eared Owl. From that meeting i started to concentrate on Owls as they fasinated me. From Canon to Olympus i recently jumped ship again to Sony. The variety of birds i have captured over a 10 year period is vast and at present i have a wildlife hide in lancashire where most of my images are captured.
