objective of setting up these pages is to arrange the
information contained in the photographs and diaries
of my life and
approach is to create a chapter for each theme for which
there will a brief description, perhaps some anecdotes and a link to a
photo gallery. Where I have kept detailed diaries I will link to a
separate page with the stories, maps and references.
Most of the
photography from 1980 to 2000 was done using a variety
of Olympus equipment - OM10, OM2 and OM4 bodies and
a variety of Zuiko
and Tamron lenses and accessories. I used an Olympus XA
when I was caught without a flash unit for the SLRs.
In late 2007
I acquired an Epson V200 Photo scanner and began to scan all my
negatives to create digital images.
from 2005 onwards are
digital - taken at first on an Olympus FE170 and thenceforward
using a Lumix DMC FZ8.
