A rather odd message….

I must tell you about a message I received on my blog here from a new reader.

I do not know whether it is from a male or female person, which I will explain below.

The person, whom I will call Andrea in order to preserve privacy, has expressed an interest in my work in photography and has said they have read my posts with huge interest since I started the blog many many years ago.

Thank you very much for your following!

The person also asked what my stand on gender issues is, something which I have not discussed on here, mainly because nobody, until now, has asked.

We all realise that gender boundaries have changed drastically over the years.

What was considered relatively taboo, shall we say, has become accepted.

By that I mean gay, lesbian, transgender, gender fluid stances, as well as quite a few new ones that I never knew existed….that of course, I fully apologise for as it is obviously my own ignorance.

I need to post more notes on this hugely important subject at a later date, but for now, I will say that I am accepting of all genders, whether that is gay, lesbian, transgender and all others I have yet to learn about.

So, to any and all of my readers, new or old, I will say, welcome all…you have a friend here!

I have never prejudged anyone, regardless of who it may be, so consider me as a friend who will listen and offer a shoulder if you are in need.

There…I feel better now and I am sure Andrea does, too…..he/she has told me he was born a male but has always felt feminine inside, and so he dresses as a female at home but has not yet had the courage to to so openly. Good luck to you, Andrea!

Thank you for reading and I think this post will elicit a lot of comments! Fire away!

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!
