About me

I lived in a small village near Uppingham, Rutland, UK until 1971 when I came to live here in Wuppertal, Germany. I was born in Stamford, Lincs, in the very early 1950´s, if I was living in the UK I would get my bus pass next now you know how young I am..hihi. My hobbies include photography, playing drums in a 60´s style blues son plays guitar in the band, he takes care of me and sees that I don´t get too drunk while playing...although I havn´t touched a drop of alcohol for over 5 years, and of course I enjoy gardening at our newly aquired datcha. More to be added later.

There are loads and loads of photos on this site. I was wondering what cameras people use. I have a Fuji Finepix A700 and a Sony A230 DSLR with a Tamron AF 70-300mm tele lens. The photos that I have here on my profile and blog are all taken with the Fuji. The Sony I use when we go visiting places and also when we go to concerts..rock concerts..I´m a big Quo fan. I also have photos in flickr and in ipernity...I like ipernity more than flickr and have to date 2666 photos there, if you a member of ipernity take look at my photos, I am to be found as... Roger 51.
