About Me and the Blog.


My name is George. I have owned a digital SLR camera for 4 years. I love photography.

[update Jan 2013 – this was meant to be a 365 Project, but young Samuel arrived half way through, so I’ve given myself an extra few months]


Babies – not good for a 365 Project

What this has meant up until now is that I like looking at other peoples photographs. During Christmas 2010 I decided it was about time I made an effort to try and become a bit of a photographer myself. After all, I’ve got the tools. How hard can it be?

I made a list of aims for 2012. You could call them resolutions. The relevant one here is the following:

2. Get more serious about photography. Carry camera all times. Get some material accepted by image libraries. And submit to competitions.

Very occasionally I take a picture I’m happy with. But I want to get a lot better, both technically and artistically. I’m going to use this blog to record the progress I make over this year. I’ll also mention photos that I like, past and present.

For those that are interested. I have a Nikon D40x with the kit 18-55mm lens. I also have a 70-300mm lens. [Jan 2013 update – I also have 35mm prime lens. Its barely off the camera now][March 2013 updated – I recently traded in my D40x for a used D7000].

My kit. I also have a tripod.



  1. I look forward to following your exploits this year, I probably need to do something similar…one day….

  2. What wonderful photographs you have here! I look forward to more 😀

  3. I started my blog (http://hocusphocus.wordpress.com/) with the same attempt to record my improvement as a person with a digital camera. I’ve been doing photography for only like two years, I also try to travel a lot and set assignements for myself. It is not easy at all to do this photography stuff and be kinda good at it.
    Keep up with the good work! 🙂

    Hi George. Thanks for sharing your blog. Like a lot. I came across a Don McCullin exhibition (purely by accident) when I was spending a few days in Bath back in 2010. A real find… and it was free.
