For the past few years I have spent my spare time travelling to different parts of the UK to try to get to know my own country and its people better. Photography is my passion. I hope my pictures tell the story I want to tell.

Please respect my right to my images. If you want to use them for any reason please contact me first and ask me. Otherwise I retain all copyright to all of my work.

Please fave as many pictures as you like. I appreciate all of them. What I love is comments. Please leave comments. I will always reply to comments.

“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.” Don McCullin

“I think about photographs as being full, or empty. You picture something in a frame and it’s got lots of accounting going on in it–stones and buildings and trees and air – but that’s not what fills up a frame. You fill up the frame with feelings, energy, discovery, and risk, and leave room enough for someone else to get in there.” – Joel Meyerowitz

"I operate not as a photographer but as a human being. I try to balance what I photograph not as a photographer but as a person, a man, and photography has got nothing to do with it. It is just something I have learnt, it is just a way of communicating". Don McCullin

Angel without Wings Award by Nameda Badge of Gratitude Participants II by TeaPhotography


Hello everyone. This is just to let you all know I posted a new journal/feature recently but I have been told that, it seems, not everyone has had notification that they have been featured. Indeed I don't know if everyone has even been notified about the journal/feature at all. This has only happened to me once before and I don't know what to do to fix it so I figured this was a good way to get the message out there. It is quite a big feature so there is a good chance you have been featured so go take a look. You may also enjoy the read. If anyone has any better ideas please let me know. There are some new artists (to me anyway) in the feature so I don't know how to tell them. 
Anyway, here it is should you wish to look at it.
Hoping and dreamingGood day everyone. It is a holiday in England today so here I am catching up on a few things and I realised it is a month since my last journal. How time flies when you are busy. April is my busiest work month and I always get a bit behind with everything but I always catch up in the end. It is why I always take a week off in May. I need to re-charge my batteries.
Following on from my last journal there was a lot of response to boxes of photographs and actual books being preferable to handle than screens and hard drives. I have given this some thought and in one reply to a comment I had the following to say. 
It's interesting that some people always say the old days were best and these people are usually from the elder part of society. Not exclusively but mainly. There are strange things afoot over here at the moment. In the uk there are many areas where the youth are going back to older ways because they actually find them better. This is ways that existed before their time. It i

thank you
Hi everyone
I'm so sorry I have got so behind looking at your wonderful art
April is always a very busy time of year for me with work anyway
and I have also just got out of the hospital where I was having tests 
to discover I have a double hernia that needs repairing. That wasn't
in my plans.
I promise I will catch up soon though. I have to get this week out
of the way then I think I will have some of my life back again. 
Much love to you all as always. I really miss being here when anything
keeps me away. Take care everyone and keep spreading the love.
You can buy a small book of a selection of my Isle Of Skye pictures here.
You can just have a look at it if you like.…

No sooner have I settled back in at home than I am off again. One week to go till I head North to Northumberland for a few days. It is the least populated county in England and the most Northerly. Blessed with a beautiful coastline with majestic castles and soft rolling hills inland I do love Northumberland. It is not as spectacular as say Iceland or Skye but it has it's own more gentle beauty and you can get away from people here. I am looking forward to it. I have been here many times but never in June so it will be very different with longer days. I will be visiting Lindisfarne which is an island with tidal access. The tide times work out pretty well so I can get on the island in the morning then I will be trapped there by the tide until the evening. The best bit about this is that it means most other visitors will be off the island by lunch time which leaves it all to me :) It's extra special there if you be there when it is quiet. You can walk around most of the coast. Through the hilly dunes out to a pristine beach then along to some rocky coves and a spit of rocks that sticks out into the sea where there may be seals basking. Along the top you turn back at a beacon and return to the village by the back of the castle and round the bay back to the priory. It's a beautiful walk and I wish I could be there more often. I'm pretty sure I will also take a boat trip out to the Farne islands where there will be puffins at this time of year. I'll have to see how the weather is as it is not looking too great for that kind of thing at the moment. Plenty of time for the weather to change though. 
I was watching some of the D-Day programmes on TV and they played a hymn which brought back a vivid memory from my early years. It was The Lord Is My Shepherd and I was surprised that I knew the words. This is because I am not a particularly religious person though I do try to live a good life. I suddenly found myself in grey shorts sitting on the wooden floor of the assembly hall in my primary school. I was about 5 or 6 years old. All the children of the school were sat in rows cross legged as a teacher played a 'plinky plonk' piano over to one side. From the ceiling, hanging from a rope and pulley arrangement was a massive hymn book. It was kind of like an enormous flip chart. They would choose a hymn for the morning and turn the big heavy pages until that hymn was showing. They would then raise the book into the air. A chosen child would stand there with a long wooden pointer and point to the words as the music played and we sang the hymn. I don't remember especially enjoying it at the time but it was a happy memory to find popping into my head. It's funny what is in there and what will bring it out. Things you thought you'd forgotten all about only need the right prompt to bring them to the front again. Although this is not always welcome sometimes it is a real treat. 
On another subject I now have a date for my operation which is July 11th. I will be out of action for a couple of weeks then which may well give me time to catch up here so it's not all bad :D:D:D I will be glad when it has been done and I am back to full fitness. It will also give me time to get ready for my trip to Germany in September when I will be doing quite a lot of walking. The Germany trip is a little like my Italy holiday a couple of years ago in that it is not specifically a photography trip. It is a historical tour but I will have my camera with me. (Of course I will).
I can't believe it is nearly nine months since I got back from Iceland and I still haven't finished editing my pictures from there. It was such a good week there. I can't wait till I go back next year. 
Well now comes the feature. I am happy to say you have all been very busy and in this selection there are more than a few images that made me stop and stare as the pictures were so beautiful or somehow really grabbed me. I love it when that happens. It is often not a big spectacular picture either. Often it is a softer, quieter image that makes me stop. It has some kind of harmony or peace about it that immediately touches my soul. It always reminds me that art is about many things and not always about the big picture. There is more than enough room for the little picture too. I will try to remember that when I am out and about. So it is with enormous pleasure that I share the following works and I hope you also find something that touches you. If that should happen please let the artist know with a comment or a fave if you can. I'm sure they will be delighted to hear from you.

Once again I thank you for getting this far. I hope you have found something to love from this selection. If I have learned one thing recently it is to take more time when looking at art. Every piece has been made by a person and they have made it because they were compelled to. Many pictures have subtleties that require attention. I love it when I see something that I might have missed had I been going too fast. Of course the same thing can apply when I am out there with my camera. Luckily I am a very patient sort of person and years of waiting for 'good light' have honed this. 
My thanks to all of you for making everything that you make. By putting a piece into the world and letting it go you have added to the sum of all things and the world is a better place for it. My love to you all. :hug:
Spread the love and keep creating your magic. I'll see you soon. :heart:
