Good day, hola, kalimera, ni hao, friends!


A very warm hello to all my long-standing friends and followers!

I do apologise profusely for not posting as often as I used to in the, what I call, the Good Old Days!

The world is a roller coaster as we all know, and never stops for anyone.

Even when we are not here, it will still carry on without us. All governed by our eternal enemy, Time.

But, just think what the world would be like, or what we would be like, if we all lived forever.

I think both the world and us as well, would be far worse than we are now.

Our frailty in life, as governed by our lifetime, is a necessity. It is part of universal change.

Nothing stays the same. Everything we see, and probably everything we can’t see, is subject to change.

So let’s value every day in our lives, for it is a blessing, and priceless.

As we come to the end of this year, we can definitely say the last few years, especially from about November 2018 till today, have been the worst of our lifetimes so far.

We have all been touched by the Covid virus, either directly or have had friends or relatives suffer.

I may have said last time I posted, I lost friends and close relatives to Covid, the lastest friend to go only about 3 weeks ago, and as I sit here typing this post to you all, I hear Covid has mutated yet again, into a possibly deadlier version they are calling Omicron.

I was in the process of planning overseas trips in the New Year, but already, I hear some countries are reimposing restrictions on flights.

Where this will end, nobody knows.

Let us hope for the best.

Getting back to photography, I have rekindled my interest and will try to post at least a couple times a month on here, if not more.

I will also be spring-cleaning this blog as well; some parts are out-dated now and need to be removed.

As always, please do drop in whenever you can for new content of interest. Regular readers will know me by now, and the fact that aside of photography, I do chat about life in general, too, most times!

I’m sure you all are happy with that? It adds zest to surfing the net, I think.

How is my life going at present? Well, long story, but two of my kids have gotten married, one last year and one this year, one left to go!

That was one reason why I just couldn’t find the time to get on the internet.

I haven’t bought any more motorbikes, not yet anyway….I did have 3 last year but I sold two off, finally acknowledging to myself that I can only ride one! However, come Springtime, which in the UK is only a little more than 8 weeks away from today, I may jump into purchasing at least one more bike….but shhh…let’s keep it quiet!

Nice to come onto here once again to greet you all good people! Chat again soon!

🙂

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!
