PLEASE READ THIS!


PLEASE NOTE: MY WORK IS COPYRIGHTED AND MAY NOT BE USED FOR COMMERCIAL PURPOSES IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM. WHILST I AM HAPPY FOR YOU TO COPY MY PICTURES, OR DOWNLOAD (WHERE APPLICABLE) FOR YOUR PERSONAL COLLECTIONS, THE ABOVE RESTRICTION APPLIES TO ANY OF MY PICTURES.

ANY MISUSE OF MY PICTURES OR THEIR USE (SEE ABOVE) WITHOUT MY ONGOING PERMISSION MAY RESULT IN LEGAL ACTION.

WHERE I HAVE TAKEN PHOTOGRAPHS WITHIN A MUSEUM OR OTHER OFFICIAL SITE OF ANY DESCRIPTION, THEIR APPROVAL MUST BE SOUGHT BEFORE COPYING AND / OR USING SUCH WORK.

AN APOLOGY: IT HAS NOW BECOME IMPOSSIBLE IN THE TIME I HAVE AVAILABLE TO THANK PEOPLE INDIVIDUALLY FOR FAVOURITES. THIS IS A MATTER OF GREAT REGRET FOR ME AS I HAVE ALWAYS WISHED TO ACKNOWLEDGE THOSE WHO APPRECIATE MY WORK. IF YOU FAVE, PLEASE TAKE MY THANKS AS A GIVEN EVEN IF YOU DON'T GET A PERSONAL MESSAGE FROM ME. I WILL STILL DO MY BEST TO ACKNOWLEDGE COMMENTS AND WATCHES, AND RETURN LLAMAS.


Here are some points I feel I need to make:

First to all, my apologies to those from whose galleries I ought to have faved and haven't - yet. It doesn't mean that I don't like your work - there is some awesome stuff out there. I just get wrapped up in putting my own stuff on and, with limited time, don't browse as much as I should. Not much of an excuse, I know.

Glamour and Fashion photography is something I wish I had more opportunity to do but it has not really been a feature of my work. I enjoy the work of those talented people who do it so well and that is why there are glamour and fashion pics in my favourites (hopefully tasteful ones!). There is nothing in my gallery or favourites that I wouldn't want my wife to see.

I am still trying to broaden my range of photographic subjects with the intention of my gallery becoming more varied as time passes.

In general, here's a policy that seems right to me at the moment:

1. Some folks just like to have faves but no other communication. This is fine and of course your faves are very much appreciated. Every so often I like to wing in with a general 'thank you' but I don't expect anything back. Be assured that I appreciate you.

2. Others like to correspond a little or a lot. Either is great and I will try and answer as soon as I can. It's good to chat! Please don't expect a reply to every comment though. If you ask me a question, I
 will do my best, but please understand that the final decision as to the title I put on each picture, and the text that goes with it, is mine. Please be courteous in your comments. Many of my DA friends (and they know who they are) have submitted comments that are both intelligent and informative. Some people have not. I don't mind being corrected:
a) if I am actually wrong; and
b) if the correction is offered in a pleasant and polite manner.
I am reluctant to block people unless they are being offensive. However, I don't like smartasses, especially those who try to look clever at my expense. Apart from the obvious, it takes the pleasure out of posting my work and, if I have cause to re-visit the picture, I also re-visit the unpleasant or irritating comment. It leaves a sour taste.
I am only asking for good manners and I hope I have made that clear.

3. Again, please forgive me if I don't give a personal 'thank-you' for faves. DA was becoming a full-time job and, with my current state of health, something had to give. I will from time to time through status updates reassure you that you are valued (although my regulars will know this already). I will always try to reply to Group requests, constructive comments and notes. Please don't ever be reluctant to ask me a question, but bear in mind I am in my mid-sixties now and may not be able to get back to you right away.

4. It must be evident from the vintage of some of my pictures that I am an 'old git'. Yes, as I said I am in my sixties, and age takes its toll sometimes. But I get a lot of satisfaction from DA and I hope my work gives some pleasure to you folks as well. The nice comments I get boost me up on the 'down' days. So thank you and rest assured that I will continue to appreciate all those kind people who take the trouble to visit my offerings on DA.

Been around a fair old while now and have travelled fairly extensively including the UK, Germany, Africa, India and the United States. Those places constitute the main railway focus in my gallery. I have held a down a few different jobs in my life, some of which have been more satisfying than others! I have made up for the less satisfying ones in my spare time and on holiday. This included going to sea as a 'weekend warrior' which I guess accounts for all the ship pictures in the gallery. This is the one period of volunteering in my life that I really recall with affection. I miss going to sea, my shipmates and the laughs we used to have. But, hell, nothing's forever.

I now live a quiet life in the UK but I plan to do some more traveling before I head for that big railroad depot up in the sky.
