I find it too pretentious to talk about myself in the 3rd person, so here's a bit about me.
I took up Photography about 30 years ago, but frustration with the cost and my slow progression (because of cost) saw me not take any pictures for over a decade. The advent of relatively cheap digital cameras and the instant feedback available gave me the impetus to take up the hobby again. One of the best decisions I've made, if a very expensive hobby. I'm currently on my 6th digital camera.
Until I upgrade my account, I've decided to only post images from Italy. My favourite place in the World is Venice, which I've been to four times, (up to now) and I also like Rome a lot too. ;-)
