Hi, thanks for dropping in. I have been away from Shutterchance for several years, but am trying to come back now. We live in Kent, in South East England, in an area full of historic buildings, and modern malls. We live close to the River Medway, that was once used by Sunday Afternoon boaters. It still is!. And 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, boats, ships and birds. I use a Panasonic Lumix camera mostly, but also an Olympus C70z, and a Canon Power Shot pocket size, all of which live in my pocket or handbag.
I also have an Clympus E410, with 3 lenses including a 70-300mm, and a set of macro lenses which I rarely use and various filters. I rarely use ony of these any more, too heavy and bulky to carry around.
When I'm not looking after my husband or taking photos, or working on the the internet, I like writing. In between times, we are online sellers of used books, postcards, and ephemera.

FotoSketcher ..... still learning this one, for a long time, I'm sure it has potential I just have to do more work with it.
