about me  United Kingdom flag

Hi, thanks for dropping in.  We live in Kent, in South East England, in an area full of historic buildings, and modern malls.  We live close to the river, once this was part of the old Royal Naval Dockyard.  In fact, our apartment is on the edge of the old quays. with water on 3 sides of our building.   Lots of photo opportunities in this area, all within walking distance.  You can see what is around us by looking at my website www.themesphotographsandprints.yolasite.com

I take photos of anything that takes my fancy, and these days that is mostly water, boats, ships and birds.   I use an Clympus E410, with 3 lenses including a 70-300mm, an Olympus C70z, and a Canon Power Shot pocket size, which lives in my pocket or handbag.  I also have a set of macro lenses which I rarely use.

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.

Olympus digital camera C70 Zoom

JASC Paint Shop Pro 9 ..... an out-of-date version, nut every update gets harder to fathom.

ACDSee 8 ..... my everyday, most used programme

ACDSee14 ..... my newest, which is replacing ACDSee 8

Photo Collage Platinum ..... my second most used programme, I would be lost without it 

PhotoFiltre ..... programme for fun and experiments, but what you see isn't always what you get when the results are printed.

Picassa ..... I find this difficult and awkward to use, but it has a couple of useful features that other programmes don't have.

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

Serif Draw Plus ..... Endless possibilities for fun with photos additions (not editing), and the results can be saved as JPGs
