Thank you for visiting my website. Let me introduce you to its nature and purpose.

You will not be asked to buy anything during your visit.

The site is my personal hobby portfolio. I hope that you will enjoy looking around the contents.

I have two hobbies writing and photography: I am not a professional in either area.

Each day, in the Blog section, I will post a Featured Photo. It will not have been taken that day but will merely be one of my favourites. Each day I will say something about the photo.

I will say something about my progress while I am in the process of writing my books. When I am not writing, I will be able to say a little about photography technique and to illustrate what I am describing with one or more photos.

The photos are not for sale and there is no method on the site for me to take money anyway.

The Writing part of the Writing and Photography blog is about a hobby I only took up during Lockdown. My wife and I were challenged by her daughter – each of us to do some creative writing. As a result, I have written a six novellas which are now published as Kindle eBooks. (I’m using the term novella to mean a book of 20,000 to 70,000 words). I have also written six short stories. My wife is well on her way to completing her challenge and has written three novellas.

For any Kindle user who wishes to read my books, they are available through the Amazon store.

Let me stress the point that the books have not been written to make money. They started as a labour of love that became an obsession. If you do feel moved to read one or more of them, thank you. It would be great to get your feedback. For me the Blog is just another exercise in writing that forces me into a daily routine – a journey whose destination is unknown when I begin but reveals itself only as I write.

PLEASE NOTE THAT I DOWNSIZED MY SUBSCRIPTION IN JULY 2021. BECAUSE I NOW HAVE ONLY 13GB OF STORAGE SPACE COMPARED WITH 200 GB I HAVE HAD TO DELETE ALL OF THE PHOTOS PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED FOR POSTS EARLIER THAN 30 MARCH 2021
