This Nile Turtle arrived for breakfast every morning at the Longhouse Inn Hotel by the riverside in Dalyan. It was fed on any leftover eggs (scrambled and boiled). Some establishments on the riverside lure the species with chicken skin in order to attract more customers, a practice which is in fact harmful to this secretive turtle which is unable to digest this food alien to its natural diet. I would imagine eggs aren't great for it to be eating every day either…Read More

Here's another video from a recent trip to Turkey, which I shot in 4k with my iPhone 7. This is of a short boat trip on the beautiful Azmak River in Akyaka in the Gulf of Gököva in Turkey. I recommend trying to watch it in HD (4K) if you can. It's really worth it...

These are some pages from my old passport. It was issued in 1980 when I was 16, but by 1984 I had changed so much that I got a new photo added. I'm amazed by how I looked thirty years ago. Not like I remember. Much better. If I knew then, etc...Read More

Ah, the old country. These photos are from the 1930's, but it was still a lot like this when I was a boy in the 60's and 70's and visited my grandparents who lived in a village about 60 miles from Budapest.Read More
In December 2004 I went to Luxor in Egypt with my first digital camera, a 4.0 megapixel Canon Powershot A80. It was before I was serious about photography and I wasn’t that impressed with the results, mainly because I hadn’t developed my ‘eye’ and didn’t know how to make the best of them.
Eight years later, I’ve sorted through the photos I took then and found much that is interesting and have uploaded a load of new images to my Egypt set on Flickr.
Man-made Castle Hill in Brailes, Warwickshire, is a prehistoric burial ground that was used as the mound for a Norman motte-and-bailey castle. Brailes (spelled Brayles in early historical documents) is a civil parish about 3 miles (5 km) east of Shipston-on-Stour in Warwickshire, England. It comprises the two villages of Lower and Upper Brailes but is often referred to as one village as the two adjoin each other.
At the beginning of June I went on a week-long trip to visit some friends in Constance Bay, Ontario, Canada.

Last week I had a long weekend in Istanbul, Turkey. I’m currently sorting through the photos I took there and uploading them to a new set on flickr.
Here’s a short video I made whilst browsing some antique shops.
One of my photos of Petra, the ‘rose red city, half as old as time’ in Jordan has been published in the North magazine winter 2011/12 edition, 'the north of Scotland's premier lifestyle magazine'. It's the one on the bottom right, of Al Siq, the 1.2km long gorge that gives access to the ancient city.
The full photoset is here . There aren’t that many of them as I was just at the beginning of my interest in photography.
