What to tell you about me, well many years ago now back in 1984, almost seems a lift time ago. I was in sea scouts, and we did this badge called photography. I had a simple SLR camera back then. I shot some pictures, and then developed the film myself. Black and white I may add it was alot easier then colour!

And this is where I first gained a love of taking Pictures. Then over the next few years, I got involved with building stationary steam engines and running a traction engine, which was fun. Apart from when I hit this fence and went through it!

Then got into medieval re-enactment which I did from 1989 - 2009 when I called it a day because of looking after my disabled wife.

So needed something to do and although I had always had camera, as in simple point and click ones, I thought it was time to step up a gear. And so bought a bridge camera. And started to learn some of the Fstops again and shutter speeds and the like.

And now its time to get a DSLR, which with a bit of luck I will be getting in the morrow!

I'm some one who will drop anything to help out a friend but dont like being sh*t on. More then that I am an easy come easy go sort of guy who likes to have an easy life and does not like being messed around, but then again who does?


I love having fun and seeing just how much trouble I can get into...

One of my past times now, is going out with Mr Matt and taking some nice pictures....

Hello there. I am sorry to bother you but I am trying to help spread around this petition to save the animated show Star Wars The Clone Wars. As you might have already heard, the show has been cancelled as of Disney's aquistion of the Star wars franchise. While I believe this is a long shot, people right now are trying to persuade disney not to cancel the show and allow them to continue creating everything they had originally planned. It is said that they had plans to take the show to an eight season if possible. Right now they plan to only release two arcs for the so called bonus content and neither of them reveal the fates of Ahsoka, Ventress, Maul, or Rex. They were even suppose to make a bounty hunter arc that revealed the fates of Cad Bane and Aurra Sing but now that won't be shown. To leave The Clone Wars unfinished would mean leaving all this characters in limbo. Dave Filoni and his team deserve to finish leaving their mark on Star Wars after everything they have done.

For the sake of continuity in the Star Wars universe, as well as a good show, I ask you to sign the petition by going to through the link below to help save the Clone Wars. All you need is to be on facebook. If you do not care for the show or are not interested, I respect your opinion and apologize in advance for bothering you. Thank you for you time.

If you already signed the petition then I apologize for annoying you and really appreciate the support you have given. If you could share the petition with your friends and other star wars fans, that would be great.

Note that you need a facebook account to sign. If you don't have one, sign this petition here on DA
