I used to take loads of photos when I was a youngster, I had a Praktica BCX electronic in the mid 80's. For some reason I stopped taking photos for about 20 years until the mobile phone came along, the camera on the Sony Eriksson W810i was fantastic and I was soon to start taking photos of anything and everything, no matter how mundane. I now have my grubby hands on a Canon 550D which I bought in August 2012.

The newest addition in July 2014 is a lovely Red Nikon D3200.

The Nikon Coolpix S600 has finally died (August 2014) after nearly 6 years, and around 5000 photos taken. Nowadays I use my mobile phone for quick snaps.

As for me, i'm Scottish, returned to my native shores in October 2017 after 10 years living in northern Sweden (which should go some way towards explaining why most of my photos are taken there).

Most of my photos were taken so that friends and family could get an idea of what was happening in life, whether it was work, places I visited, sports I watched, concerts I went to, or stupid things I foud in my freetime etc.

It worked in reverse for a couple of years with Swede's I met asking where I come from and what it's like, it was the main reason I started up the "Selkirk, Selkirkshire" Group.

Now i'm back home, i'll be concentrating on most things Scottish.
