About
I cannot remember a time when I have not taken photographs.

From those early days as a teenager owning and using a camera has always been a big part of my life. Beginning with a Japanese single lens reflex Komaflex S, I graduated to my first Leica, a well-used IIIc manufactured in Germany in 1947. This was eventually traded in for a more up to date M3, still by Leica which was later exchanged for an M6. Today with the digital age firmly established the M6 has been joined by an M9P for pleasure in my retirement. Interestingly the M9P is still manufactured in a now unified Germany. I've always been a landscape person hence "the county of Derbyshire" but of late and since it is literally on my doorstep, "an English garden" is now a gallery item.

So, please enjoy the county of Derbyshire, an English garden throughout the seasons and the other galleries as they are added.
