Fenton Ayres

Photography has always been a joy of mine. My goal is to share my world around me with others. I don't do a great deal of digital 'wizardry' and I try to leave my images as close to untouched as possible. Although I am a digital photography, I guess you could say I'm a bit of a purist when it comes to retouching or altering the images that I capture.
