Wargaming IT person. Married, two children. Tranny tendencies. Dabbler in Sherlock Holmes and military history. Originally from the UK, but now settling into Australia after moving here in September 2008.
Most of the early pictures in my stream were taken using my venerable Fuji Finepix F401. However this died at the end of July 2008. I switched to an Olympus u600 and then, through the kindness of another Flickr user acquired an an Olympus SP550UZ. I added an Iphone to my kit not long after. I have now finally progressed to a 'grown-up' camera, acquiring an Olympus EM-10 MkII mirrorless camera at the end of 2015.
I did four years of the 365 Days self-portrait project. You can see random pictures from the project here.

"Kaptain K has some great shots in his stream. he makes me smile with his 365 journey and has made me jelous because he has moved to Australia!"

"Kaptain Kobold has been one of the fellow 365/FGR/TRP'ers that I really look up to. Not only is he crazy enough to do a third year, he has a really great attitude about the whole thing, that not every shot is going to be a masterpiece, and just have fun with it. And he manages to come up with some of the most creative ideas for self-portraits, which is really impressive considering how many of them he's had to do so far. He's been an inspiration to keep me going on my own 365 Days."

"Oh Kaptain, my Kaptain. I value you.
He's one of the people I look for without fail. There's a real creativity and always something different going on. We'll not mention Godzilla."

Trevor Butcher - Artist says:
"What can I say to someone who gave a few encouraging words to a beginner and thus gave them the confidence to go on and do a little better a lot more often. I am fascinated by his images and can spend hours looking through the thousands he appears to have uploaded. What a guy!"
August 7th, 2008
"You never quite know what you are going to get in this stream, and for me that makes it a fun one to come back to. I love Kaptain Kobold's kindness and sense of adventure, his self portraits are very amusing, he has the most extensive Lego set and his self portraits with a Godzilla mask are always a delight! He seems like a great family man, who looks hot in the wife's dresses and pearls, honestly what more would you want in a guy?"
