I'm a widower; my wife, Valerie, died in 2003. (My car number plate is GE04 VAL ) In 2005-6 I took a course in photography at East Surrey College, but I've been taking photographs for years. I've changed my name on flickr from funfilledgeorgie as I thought that it was pretty silly, but I'm still full of fun - some of the time. Despite the birthday counter having clicked 73 I'm still waiting to become a grown up sensible sort of chap :)
Since joining flickr, and especially since becoming an admin on the 365 Days self-portrait group, I've found a way of spending FAR too long at the computer but very many people have seen my photos, and have commented on them, and I've seen so much that I'd never have been able to see otherwise :)

"I am certain I first spotted Georgie's wonder filled photos through 365 (of which I didn''t even finish year 1!) What a delight it is to see what he has gotten up to in his (year 3!) of selfies photos and in his travels. He has a warm and down-to-earth humour, always kind words and intriguing perspectives into everyday life.
I am indeed made richer having made his acquaintance through the quirky world of Flickr. :D"

"GeorgieR - the first thing I check out on Flickr! An inspiration to us all; I am fortunate enough to count Georgie a friend and neighbor. He lives just round the bend.....;-)"

"Ok, what could be better than a man who jumps AND takes selfies while riding a bike? Possibly a man who also take selfies on the independence days of other countries. Georgie is the coolest dude, ever. Yeah, ever."

"George's photos are fun to see. Many of them reveal humor and a sense that he is a very down to earth person with a real zest for life. Many times his descriptions are laced with interesting tidbits of information well worth reading."

Clive Andrews says:
"It's great checking out George's photos. They reflect both the everyday and the extraordinary - often simultaneously.
In particular, I'd recommend taking a look at the slideshow of his participation in the 365 Days project. A great mix of humour, documentary and autobiography.
George has the air of a mildly eccentric, mischieveous uncle - the kind your parents worried would teach you bad habits."

"Sit back, pour yourself a drink and enjoy the sights with GeorgieR. Looking at his photostream, I feel like a tiny sightseer on his shoulder as he fills me in with his insightful (and at times, really funny) commentary. This was the best trip I've taken without leaving my computer in ages!!"
