Introduction
I am an amateur photographer, a fan of Android, tech, Formula 1, Land Rovers, and camping and the outdoors. I am also responsible for the Shire Land Rover Club twitter and facebook ​​​​accounts. My current camera is a Sony A6000. All of my photos are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial Share-Alike licence - please respect this.

I am British, and this post pretty much sums me up nicely.

I came out as gay in March 2014 - my life from this point forward is a work in progress.

According to humanmetrics.com, I am INTJ if that interests you.

Yesterday's photowalk was a bit of an experiment - seeing how I get on with the 55-210mm as my only lens for walking around London. Having gone through the photos I took (or lack thereof) I have come to two conclusions:

1. There is no one lens.
2. I need to carry around two more A6000 bodies to cover all eventualities.

:-P

35mm and 50mm ff equivalent is all you ever really need :)

Heartbeat

"French artist Charles Pétillon presents his first public art installation – and his first ever live work outside of France – in Covent Garden as 100,000 giant white balloons fill the grand interior of the 19th Century Market Building."

Quite impressive, though I'm told it's better at night as there is a light show.

No, I've never had a boss like this.

Boss: I want you to think like entrepreneurs. Dilbert: Should we take huge risks? Boss: No, the stockholders would hate that. Alice: Should we act as though we have no boss? Boss: NO. That would be chaos. Dilbert: Will we become billionaires if we succeed? Boss: Raises are capped at 3% this year. I'm just saying you should be more creative. Dilbert: and then we should act? Boss: No, that's when the problems happen.

What a great pub! Some friends and I stopped off here on the way back from a photowalk around Richmond Park on Saturday to grab a drink and gain some respite from the weather. It was about 4.30pm and the pub was already starting to fill up, but the staff were extremely efficient. It was great to see a number of guest ales on tap and I managed to grab a delicious IPA (not sure of the name) and ordered the Wild Board Burger, which was delicious. If ever I find myself in this part of London again (which I am planning on doing), I shall hope I am in the right part of town to revisit The Roebuck.

Absolutely stellar service - came away with a couple of bow ties and (thanks to constant nagging from a friend) my first Harris Tweed jacket. I will definitely be back!

It was a few years ago that I stayed for one night with friends. It was just about okay, but being next to the river you will get bitten by bugs during the summer.

An excellent day out. Their website recommended three hours to look around, but we were there for six and still didn't see everything. I highly recommend the free audio tour which is available in a number of languages, and keep an eye out for members of Henry VIII's Court who do an excellent job of interpreting the politics at the time he decided to create the Church of England. The buildings wete amazing, and so much bigger than I was expecting, and the formal gardens are vast. If it is a nice day when you go, you will find plenty of shade under the trees. The only downside is the cost - unlike a lot of museums nowadays your ticket does not last the year. I don't know whether this is down to their charity status, or just their choice - if it wasn't for some vouchers covering a lot of the cost, I might not have made the trip. Likewise, the cost of food in the Tilt Yard Restaurant was quite steep for what you were getting - the quality was good, but the prices were higher than a motorway service station so you may wish to take your own and have a picnic. All that said, I would definitely recommend a visit and would go again if I had the chance.
