I’ve always loved taking photos. There’s something life-affirming about capturing moments: of people, places, and nature. In the 1980s we had the polaroid camera to snap those special times; in the 1990s it was more likely you’d pick up an instant camera to record sights and fun nights out. I recall buying a digital camera early in the 21st century which seemed to open up more opportunities – mainly the chance to delete any pictures that came out wrong and then start again. Of course, now it’s the smartphone that has been doing all the photo work – the go-to tool for so many things in life.
Whatever camera I’ve used through the decades I’ve really relished being able to keep the memories locked in forever, to enjoy whenever. I hope you enjoy this selection of photos I have taken over the last few years.
