Ok, time for another rant!


All my life, I’ve been listening to people who’ve not been able to have children.

And sometimes, the stories I’ve heard have driven me to tears…stories that need telling, need writing down…maybe someday I’ll do it.

And, while on one side we have people who would dearly love a child of their own, on the other side, we have people who couldn’t care less.

What kind of a race is the race of humanity, I ask? Is this what being human means?

ME & MY PASSION! ok, you probably looked at the length of this "about me" page and thought, god, what's wrong with this guy!....does he have to start telling us his life story or something!!? well, youve come here now anyways, so why not hear what im like as a person, eh? ive been using film cameras for well over 30 years...my first one being the family yashicamat twin lens! over the years, ive both bought sold and collected film cameras...too many to tell the truth! in fact, ive been buying and selling cameras well before the internet came on the scene, so anything you purchase from me is backed by my self-styled moneyback promise.....if you dont like what youve bought, send it back within 14 days and you get all your money back...no arguments!! WHERE I STAND ON THE DIGITAL REVOLUTION! yes, i do use digital as well, but only as a ready-reckoner...i try and take most shots with my simple 2megapixel digicam....if the shot looks good, i pull out my film camera and shoot! i most defintely do not believe in digital manipulation of photographs....that in my eyes is not photography...its cheating! WHERE I USED TO LIVE, WHERE I AM NOW & WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO DO! i used to live in Ontario, Canada, but moved back to the UK a little while ago (its a long story..!)...but now i'm living in the one place i always wanted to be...Vancouver, BC..the next best thing to paradise on earth! as i work as a freelance writer as well as other things, i often find hat my work takes me to europe for short spells, so i get to travel a lot...not a blessing, as i just hate long flights! im a qualified Quality Assurance guy (you know...ISO 9000, auditing, documentation etc) ....99% of my skill-set is transferable so i can handle any admin or documentation-related roles....see you in BC! otherwise, i specialise in ISO 9000 auditing and documentation. my dream? to have my own thriving camera shop in Vancouver BC, whilst living in the mountains somewhere.....the best of both worlds!

  1. I am one of those folks who could not have a child of my own. Eventually, we adopted a 6 year old boy with special needs. He is the light of my life and will always be my little boy, though he’s 22 years old now. I agonize over the things I hear people saying about their kids, when I see the news reports of people throwing their children away, abusing them (I had an abusive childhood), talking so easily about abortion, etc. They do not understand what a gift a child is. This story about the baby in the sewer pipe is confusing, I don’t understand how it happened, what she was doing, thinking… we humans are losing our humanity.

    • yes, indeed!
      im with you 100%….a child is a priceless gift….but as you very aptly agree…we humans are not only losing our humanity..sometimes i think we’ve already lost it!

    Incredible, sadly babies get discarded more than people might generally realize. Here in the states (or at least here in Illinois) unwanted newborns can be left at any hospital or fire department no questions asked. It seems to have had a positive effect on cases of child abandonment here. It hasn’t stopped it altogether but the number of newborns and infants found (usually deceased) has dropped significantly.

    • yes, marty…and the irony of the whole shebang is that..around the world, ‘most everywhere, there are people crying their eyes out because they cannot conceive….
