UK resident, in north west Lancashire. It was time for a career change and a lifelong interest in photography has opened up a new path with new challenges. As well as submissions to photo libraries and magazines I'm also putting together a selection of e-book titles through Amazon Kindle.

    EARLESTOWN. At The Friday Market.

    If you look back through my blog you’ll notice that I like markets, I really enjoy the buzz and atmosphere of the coming and going, the snatched overheard scraps of conversation and that mix of people moving about. Some are fixed of purpose, list in hand gleam in one eye while the other keeps mind of the wristwatch or clock. While others just idling by and taking it all in, […]

    Chorley. A Blooming Good Show.

    In the UK summer is a fickle mistress at the best of times, so scheduling an open air event can mean you’re living a bit dangerously but it’s something we natives have just got used to. All of that said, this weekend past I went along to the fifth annual Chorley flower show, held as always in the grounds of the delightful Astley Hall, a large manor house dating from […]

That said the liner has it’s own planetarium for all you seagoing stargazers. The Cunard Line’s connection with Liverpool goes back to […]

    Well here in the UK summer has sort of decided to put in and appearance, the temperatures are certainly on the up, though there is still the occasional rain shower to stop everybody enjoying things too much. I was walking through Bolton a couple of evenings ago, on my way to meet up with friends. Bolton’s a Lancashire market town with a heritage in the cotton and engineering industries. It […]

    Chester. Music On The Street & By The River.

    On a sun kissed day Chester is a fine and pretty place. I took myself off there a few days ago just to have a wander around the city inside the walls and take in the atmosphere, coffee and cake would also be on the agender. As always I travelled there by train and my preferred route into the city takes me along Brook Street, Frodsham Street and onto Northgate […]
