I'm gerry with plenty of time to take pics now that I'm no longer working full time. Done a lot of different things in life. Started off at 16 working at a zinc smelter, and worked up to a university career. Became a boring academic, then Head Gardener (well..er..just me!) for three ladies-of-title (Lady Wigoder, Lady Lampton, and Lady Somebody-else), senior Washer-Upper at London Restaurant, taught Rural Development in Africa, worked in a Law Centre, wrote a novel and a drab textbook and became a Training Consultant (definitely capital T and capital C!). Oh, and I worked as an illegal migrant in the US, for the 1980 Census!
Photography is new to me: Ive been at it now for four years and I take stuff - any stuff - that goes on in streets, or lanes, or back gardens or where ever people get together. I spend half of my time in Asia each year, noseying around what is happening in the backstreets of Colombo and Bangkok and Hanoi.
