I enjoy your work and have made yo a Flickr contact. I have been on Flickr for a number of years and I think I'm a better photographer for it. Photography is a means to make art and history accessible for everyone.
In the event you are interested in my story, I am 67, worked in IT for many years and now spend much of my time writing - poetry and novels. I picked up a camera at age 18 and haven't put it down since.
