Hi, thanks for dropping in. I was away from Shutterchance for several years, but now I'm back.
We live in Kent, in South East England, in an area full of historic buildings, and small modern malls. The River Medway runs through the town; once it was used by Sunday afternoon boaters. We have a castle, well, the ruins of one, but it does have a long history of defending both the town and nation, right up to and during World War II.
I take photos of anything that takes my fancy, and these days that is mostly water, trees. flowers and buildings. I use a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70 camera mostly, with my Huawei P20 Pro Photo. I also use an elderly Olympus C70z, an elderly Olympus VG-70 and a Canon Power Shot pocket size, any of which will be found in my pocket or handbag. So I never has less than 2 cameras (Lumix and Huawei) with me, often it is 3.
I have an Clympus E410, with 3 lenses including a 70-300mm, and a set of macro lenses which I rarely use and various filters, which mostly lives in the cupboard because it is too heavy and bulky to carry around and my hands can no longer hold it really steady.
When I'm not looking after my husband or taking photos, or working on the the internet (we are online sellers of used books, postcards, ephemera and other things) I like writing short stories, articles and letters.
