Photography Opens Another Door

My journey has taken me to many places, a few images hang on people’s walls given as a gift so people can enjoy tha capture, the moment, story and maybe a memory of time frozen. We are all different and we get a special feeling when another human being likes what you do for pleasure….

Top Fish

The sea was blue like the sky a Dad and Son floated on the sea surface, “look Son at all the fish” this is how we snorkel dad explained. Get some rest and wave to your sister. Right Son the next thing we can do is use our flippers to propel us through the water….

A New Chapter.

A sense of calmness has taken hold of my mind and body, one i am trying to work out. A feeling I can’t describe but its so nice its like I am floating all the time. The once man you was ready to explode at any minute, who would over react. Writing and sharing my…

6.05 November 1988

I sat in the living room in my military house, a little boy my Son sat on my knee and we had beans and Sausage in tomato sauce. His cup of tea was in his little plastic mug, I told him that I was waiting for the phone to ring because his mummy was having…

Family Dreams

Dad Brian,Julie and Christine are not part of my life there blood flows from our same mother. Arguments and stupidity have led to Silence no communication. We once played in the same house happy not knowing what the world had in store for us One by one they left, I left we all started a…

Frog Travel

The sticks float by as the little frog lost swept away in the night as the storm hit our peaceful land. All alone the world looks so big, a flat piece of wood a little raft takes hold of the grass bank. Climb aboard little chap and paddle the storm has gone sun shines on…

I like to Give

Why does giving something to someone come naturally but receiving be uncomfortable makes me feel anxious. Why do I feel like this, I would rather have nothing given to me but I want to give gifts and surprises to my family and friends. Don’t want anything in return, its not the same feeling when I…

The Corner.

What waits for us, is it a long way to the corner or is it near. The corner of life I have turned so many times, the happy corner and sad. Will there be another one, two or three, give me a surprise, or a shock. The corner will be a long one or short,…

Military Humour

I kept a diary of my service in the army not anything special just things I found funny. So I thought I would share with you some sayings or just what my mate said on a normal day. 2 Soldiers on a road in the middle of nowhere. Are your feet hurting mate. Who’s mine….

Forgiveness

Are you like me, getting on in life and thinking is it time to forgive, is it to late to forgive, what will it do for my Soul if I finally make that decision to forgive. Is what happened still fresh in your mind or is it long ago but that bad there is no…

My walk with Nature

I see tree’s that are green the leaves of gold, bark aged with time roots long like a road. I make my way carefully through the Bluebells as the Roe deer looks back, I stop on the track. Go your Fawn is near, I will wait here while the mist clears. So time moves by…

Legs of Time

I walk slowly now the years have flown by like geese migrating in the first morning frost. Blue skys above me legs walk carefully again taking me on anther journey, to another wonderful wildlife experience. To a stranger walking a dog, over fields and streams they never stop pleasing me. The streets of London in…
